Join us on Saturday, 29th April 2017 for our annual Hike to the Hook, a 20km road walk along one of Ireland’s most scenic routes. Happening as part of Hook Lighthouse’s Shine a Light Festival it will start out from the majestic Tintern Abbey and end at the world-famous Hook Lighthouse.
The route will take in the picturesque village of Saltmills with views out to Bannow Bay, Then on to Fethard-on-Sea, past Fethard Castle, with a rest stop and joining point at the RNLI Boat House. For those of you not ready to take on the full 20km, join here with 12.5km left to go.
Walkers will then head on past the historical Baginbun, over the hill by Templetown Church, taking in the beautiful panoramic views of our coastline all the way to Sliabh Coilte.
Now over halfway, walkers will pass the infamous Loftus Hall, where families are welcome to join for the final 3.5km to Hook Lighthouse.
Complimentary buses will be available to return participants back to their cars.
