The tour included the visit to the lighthouse, and other very beautiful and interesting... More

The Hook Head Safari tour was wonderful. Both Sean, who was on holiday and John who conducted the "safari" were amazing! John shared a lot of wonderful history reagrding Ireland and showed us some amazing sites. I'd recommend the tour to anyone who is near the area and you have the 4 hours for the full experience :)

A wonderful trip with a pleasant knowledgeable guy named Sean. He took us on a tour of the area and gave us wonderful insights, with stories peppered with humour. Anyone wanting to know more about this part of Ireland could not do better than go on a safari with Sean. This is a pleasant way to spend a few hours.... More
