Less than one hour in length take the Ring of Hook Coastal Drive to soak up the stunning coastal rural scenery this beautiful part of Ireland has to offer, while catching sight of some of our county’s most important built heritage. Follow Ring of Hook Signage starting from Tintern Abbey, on to Fethard village, Baginbun Head, Loftus Hall, Hook Lighthouse, Templar’s Church ruins and finish in Duncannon Village. Full map and brochure available May 2015.

This was the first time seeing Hook and pictures just do not do it justice. Planning a return visit next summer.
