We had a wonderful trip with Shawn touring the Hook Peninsula. He is extremely knowledgeable on history in the region and entertaining as well. It was a fun time, very relaxing, instead of driving ourselves. We highly recommend this tour.

I am traveling solo, staying at a bnb in Wexford until 31 July and do not have a car. Would love to see Hook Lighthouse and the peninsula. Do you pick up in Wexford? Is the cost of the tour still €30? Is this a half day tour or more? Will you have tours this week?

Hi, I am a senior traveling solo, staying at a bnb in Wexford and do not have a car. Would love to see the Hook Lighthouse and peninsula. I will be in Wexford until the 31 July. (1) do you pick up in Wexford or do I need to take the bus to New Ross? (2) what is the cost of the tour? Still €30 per adult? (3) what is the time schedule? Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
