Good scenery and not a long drive after driving most of the day. Took us down to the Hook Lighthouse which we did not take the guided tour nor climb. Great overlook from the ramparts. Seals. Rock shelf shoreline.

This is a must see - even after hours- just for the views and history! If you go during the day you can tour the lighthouse, tour the haunted castle along the way, as well as eat at a local pub.
