TAKE A SUNRISE TOUR
Explore the oldest operational lighthouse in the world – Hook Lighthouse jutting out into the sea at the tip of the Hook Peninsula on the corner of Ireland’s Ancient East.
Rising to the East of the Lighthouse tower, taking in the glorious sunrise this ancient site overlooking Ireland’s Celtic Sea is a once in a lifetime experience. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the rolling seas stretching out before you while you savour the dawning of a new day from the lighthouse watch room and balcony.
Following the sunrise visitors can enjoy a guided tour up the 115 well-worn steps of this medieval tower and see it’s heritage come to life as you meet life sized figures of the Monk who first established the beacon at the site in the 5th century followed by the Knight who built the tower, William Marshal some 800 years ago and hear of life as a lightkeeper before you step on to the top floor outdoor balcony and take in the 360degree sweeping views of the Southeast of Ireland.
