Myself and my wife did the tour of Hook Lighthouse when we were staying in New Ross. We had Claire as our tour guide. Claire was very friendly and welcoming from the start and was very informative about all the history of the lighthouse and answered any questions we had with great detail and patience, thanks Claire.She has a passion for her job.
She made our tour very interesting and enjoyable. I would highly recommend a visit to Hook Lighthouse.

Fab place to visit. Didn’t do the lighthouse tower (young son with us) but went for a walk around had fantastic food which was very well priced. Nice little gift shop not too much on sale which is good. Staff were very friendly and helpfull. Spotless place inside and out. Could have spent alday there. Weather was fab for January too.
