Impressive lighthouse. Great tour, really interesting history brought to life. Tour guide comes from a family of light house keepers and can answer any question you need to ask? Visit there "by Hook or by Crook"!

You won't believe your eyes and how beautiful this quiet, non-touristy area of Ireland is. Gorgeous vistas, seaside towns, and the Hook Lighthouse at the end. Excellent.

We drove this in a day but could quite happily have spent a couple or even a few of days as there are so many interesting places along the way. Good place to stop is Miskella stores for refreshments and a whippy ice cream. Not...More
