What you'll do

Discover the beautiful Hook Peninsula, a stunning example of Ireland's wild coastline, on a trip that takes you through hidden sea caves, round incredible headlands and for authentic Irish meals.

Once you’ve met at the boutique lodge in the lush, green County Wexford, fuel yourself up for a thrilling day of activities with a hearty Irish breakfast.

Then, spend your day exploring the rugged, wild coastline at Hook Head from a totally unique perspective. Jump into a kayak and set out of a secret cove, taking advantage of your guide’s local knowledge to discover hidden caves, cliffs and dramatic arches.

Rest at a lonely, pristine beach and enjoy a hot drink and a snack before you journey back, then head back to the lodge for a hot shower and rest before you head out for a fantastic three-course meal of locally sourced food at the local gastro-restaurant.

The next day, head out for a drive around the beautiful Hook Peninsula for an independent exploration of this wild corner of the world. Of course, we’ll provide you with some tips and a suggested route to take, but the point is that this section is completely your own exploring, there’s nothing more rewarding than stumbling across amazing spots under your own steam!

Reset and refresh your mind with two days away from it all, and immerse yourself in the Irish wilderness for a weekend you’ll be sure to remember.
