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 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..
