Gallivanting Tours

The Ring of Hook Tour

A perfect choice if you are only in the area for a short time and want to experience as much as possible in one day. We begin at the Hook peninsula were we visit Loftus Hall, Irelands most haunted house, on their fantastic house tours you will discover the amazing stories that earn it its reputation. Moving on to Hook Lighthouse you can blow away the memories by climbing to the top and ticking off this world Heritage site off your bucket list. Your guide can recommend many lovely places to lunch or feel free to bring a picnic and eat lunch by the romantic ruins of Dunbrody Abbey, feel free to stretch your legs in their huge maze afterwards! Moving then to New Ross you can climb aboard the SS Dunbrody and explore this replica of the famine ships that took Irish emigrants to the US and Canada in the 1800s and our final stop for the day is at the Kennedy Homestead, the farm Patrick Kennedy, Grt Grandfather of John F Kennedy, fled during the worst year of the potato famine. Still farmed by his descendants it is now home to a great visitor Centre that explains the deep links between the Kennedy Clan and Ireland, still as strong as ever.
