The Tour – Reopening for guided tours mid-May 2017 Duncannon Fort is an impressive presentation of a bastioned fortress perched on the side of the stunning Hook Peninsula, County Wexford, part of Ireland’s Ancient East. This historic structure has gathered countless intriguing and awe inspiring stories over its 450 year history and holds one of the best vantage points to take in the beautiful Waterford Estuary from. Duncannon Fort closed for the season on Sunday 28th August 2016. Thank you for all the support this season. *Hook Tourism is a not for profit organisation. All funds raised contribute to providing these guided tours and to the development of tourism on the Hook Peninsula.

Susan our tour guide was very knowledgable happily answering our questions. She was also very engaging with the youngsters 4,6,7,8yrs and kept them interested all the way round - though I think the highlight of the tour was probably Sid. Keep up the good work.

Tour groups are small and led by very knowledgeable staff. We really enjoyed this tour because of the great information. It was great to visit a tourist attraction and not have to fight crowds.
