We had a wonderful trip with Shawn touring the Hook Peninsula. He is extremely knowledgeable on history in the region and entertaining as well. It was a fun time, very relaxing, instead of driving ourselves. We highly recommend this tour.

We visited Hook Head lighthouse, Tintern Abbey and most of us went on a lovely cliff walk. We toured a beautiful... More

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

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.

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
