the hook head safari was the highlight of our holiday. As a family of 4 with 12 and 9 year olds Sean kept us all entertained and we enjoyed his gifts and surprises and especially his excellent knowledge. We would have never had seen half of it without him. Highly recommended.

The area is full history and had some unexpected reference points that resonated with the adults in the group... More

as we only had a week in Waterford finding the leaflet for Hook safaris was a blessing,there's no way we could have found the places we visited with the tour and the guide was a fountain of knowledge so if you find yourself in the area and want to spend a brilliant afternoon seeing the local area with a very...

I spent some time in Wexford early in July and the highlight of our trip was the our tour of the Hook Peninsula . The scenery is breathtaking particularly from the top of the Hook Lighthouse . Séan is an excellent guide and a mine of information! I would certainly recommend this tour and hope to do it again .

My sister and I are researching the area our grandfather and grandmother grew up. The Hook isn't easy to get around, the answer was Sean and his Hook Head safari, great day out visiting the places where our family grew up. The next time we go over we will be calling Sean! Good value for money and a cracking guide.

We were the only two on the afternoon tour so we had Sean all to our selves which was great. The abbey was beautiful and the light house was amazing plus all the wonderful scenery in between. Sean was a great tour guide and knew so much about the area. A friend had recommended this tour and now I know... More

We were on a Safari with Séan, a gang of bridge players from Clondalkin, we had a great time and Séan could talk for Ireland not bore you for one second, he knew all about the local area. I don't know how he organised the good weather, but that's the Sunny South East for you..
