We are perfectly located on Hook Peninsula, County Wexford's most scenic section of coastline. Only a 2 hour drive from Dublin and less than 1 hour from Rosslare, Wexford, Waterford & Kilkenny. We are situated on a private and peaceful 5 acre site which boasts fantastic sea views. Surrounded by intimate and dramatic scenery, with an abundance of visitor attractions and activities you will be spoiled for choice whether yours is a short break or more extended holiday.
Choose the stunning sea views from the top of the 800 year old Hook Lighthouse where you will have learned it's full history along the way, or enjoy the thrills of one of the many watersport centres. Relax and take in one of the many Norman Ruins to be found in this most historic of locations.
County Wexford is the cornerstone of Ireland's Ancient East and Hookless Holiday Homes are the ideal place to base your family holiday. Though there is an absolute wealth of things to do on the Hook Peninsula itself, you will also find yourselves perfectly located to spend the day at any of County Wexford's many attractions or even spend the day instead in either of the Southeast's medieval cities - Waterford or Kilkenny.

UNWIND ON A #SECRETBEACH
Sandeel Bay: Only a 3 minute walk from the Sea View houses, this is the closest beach to Hookless holiday homes and provides hours of exploration among the rockpools, tranquil sunbathing on the golden sands & a gentle to surf to paddle and splash in.
Grange: There is not much in the way of shelter at Grange Beach, but this just makes it perfect for sports such as windsurfing or kitesurfing. Grange is a Green Coast Beach
Baginbun Beach: The gentlest of the beaches on the peninsula, sea kayaks can be hired off the beach all summer.
Carnivan Beach: Not suitable for swimming due to strong currents, Carnivan is arguably the most beautiful of the peninsula's beaches; turquoise waters, crashing waves and a sense of stepping off a cliff in Wexford, to arrive on a beach in the Mediterranean.
Dollar Bay & Booley Bay: Quiet secluded beaches offering shelter and clean sands & water. Small BBQs are permitted, however people are asked to leave no trace. Booley bay is a Green Coast Beach
Duncannon: The biggest & busiest beach on the Peninsula, Duncannon is a very popular spot with its easy access to the village and all its amenities, but does not offer the same secret beach feel as the others.
