Hook Lighthouse is situated on Hook Peninsula in Wexford. One of the oldest working lighthouses in the world. It is a unique example of an almost intact medieval lighthouse. It dates from the early 13th century and was a major feat at the time of its construction. Purpose built as a lighthouse, it has served sailors and shipping for 800 years, apart from a short closure during the 17th century. When the Tower of Hook became fully automated in 1996 and no longer needed resident keepers, it was decided to celebrate its uniqueness by opening it to the public.
The Wexford Wildfowl Reserve, jointly owned by BirdWatch Ireland and NPWS, is situated in 936 hectares of reclaimed sloblands. It is one of Ireland's finest bird sites and is an internationally important wetland. The area is renowned for the wide diversity and density of its birdlife. Up to 10,000 Greenland White-fronted Geese occur in winter, a third of the world population. Internationally important numbers of Bewick's Swans and Pale-bellied Brent Geese occur.

She carried many emigrants to the new world from 1845-1870 during the Irish Famine period. The Dunbrody replica ship was finished in early 2001 and has been opened to visitors since 1st May 2001 at the quayside in New Ross.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are a family of four. I am a principal teacher in a primary school in Dublin, my husband is involved in construction and our son and daughter are in secondary school. We all enjoy various sports and have even tried our hand at golf.....
Why the Owner Chose Rosslare: We love the fact that Wexford is so accessible from Dublin where we live and, yet, feels like it is a million miles away from the busy city life. The proximity to the beach, to such a lovely golf course were the main attractions for us when purchasing in St Helen's Cove.
