I discovered Hook Head Safaris whilst browsing on the Internet for something a little bit different for our family of four to do during our 2 week holiday in Waterford. Booking online was straightforward, and I followed up with a phone call to Sean to confirm my booking. I have to say I was disappointed that we did not get... More

The safari covers the main attractions in the area and the guide is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, it's people and history. A great value.

Fantastic 4 hour trip around some sights of Co. Wexford. Highlights included Tintern Abbey and the Hook Head lighthouse. John, our guide, was the most lovely man and very kindly stopped wherever we wanted to, to take some pictures (we were truly blessed with the weather!). A very entertaining and informative day and some lovely memories to take away. I... More

Elderly parents, Aunt and I had a free afternoon in Waterford, not keen to drive and called by tourist information office for ideas. They recommended Hook Head Safaris which was the ideal afternoon out - pick up from hotel, could do as much or as little walking as you liked. Bob was an informative guide and we thoroughly enjoyed stops... More

Fantastic! What a great day out! We came across Hook Head Safaris online and it looked really interesting, so following a call to Sean, everything was in hand. We were 't disappointed - and it got a double thumbs up from 2 discerning 11 year old critics as well!! Sean is a natural storyteller (and spontaneous songster!) so from the... More

Today we spent our day with Sean from Hook Head Safari. He kindly picked us up from our B&B and gave us the most enjoyable and informative tour of the Ring of Hook. Among other places, we visited the Tintern Abbey and the Hook Head Lighthouse. We drove the coast line and he would let us stop whenever we wanted... More

This was a great way to see the area and learn the history! Sean was amazing to work with. We were in contact by email to plan the trip and he even adjusted the start time of the trip to accommodate our timing needs. Sean had endless stories and songs that showed his knowledge of the area and its history.... More

We were collected from our hotel by our wonderful tour guide and dropped home around 4 hours later. Our trip started in Waterford and crossed over to Wexford via the ferry at Passage East and included a... More

The tour to Tindern Abbey, Hook Head and the beautiful seaside was really lovely. We saw wonderful places and heard funny stories about the castles and the people from the past. Thanks a lot to Sean who told us many interesting stories about the Irish history. It was a very grateful experience.
