Sea Cave Kayaking
Setting off from Fethard-On-Sea, Hook Head Adventures
will guide you safely past steep, rugged cliffs, tiny golden beaches and into deep, echoing caves. Challenging, but not exhausting, kayaking is a really unique way to explore the coastline from a whole new angle.
After your Hook Lighthouse tour, pay a visit to neighbouring Loftus Hall
; allegedly the most haunted house in Ireland. The interactive tour features re-enactments of the house’s dark past by enthusiastic actors.
Dunbrody Famine Ship
With costumed performances on board, Dunbrody Famine Ship
provides a unique insight into the Irish emigrant experience during the famine, culminating in a visit to the ‘arrivals hall’, revealing the fate that awaited those who survived the harrowing journey.
JFK Memorial Park and Arboretum
If you’ve been to New Ross, you’ve probably visited the Kennedy Homestead, but the nearby 600-acre JFK Memorial Park and Arboretum
is a lesser explored treasure. Go for a woodland walk or a ramble around the lake and watch out for the miniature train and pony rides during the summer.
