Hook Lighthouse is once again open for St Patrick’s Day, and with it, its traditional tour offer.
Anyone named after our Patron Saint can avail of a free tour of the world’s oldest intact operational lighthouse, built 800 years ago.
The day, which includes a snake hunt in the grounds and other activities for kids, offers a chance to do something away from the bustle of the parade.
Speaking to Beat news, General Manager Lorraine Waters, explains a bit more about the offer:
"Paddy, Pat, Patricia, Patsy, you name it, can go free on tour.
"No what I would say is - for anyone who's worried - we're not going to check IDs, so you can see where we're going with this.
"This is the Hook giving something back to our visitors for by saying 'you know what lads, thanks so much for coming out'
"We're back now open fully, the tours are open fully" continued Lorraine. "We don't mind if people want to wear masks - some of the staff are still wearing them - there's no problem.
"It's just great to say 'our doors are open', and with that we have free tours. But we're also doing things like snake hunt and treasure quest, lots of things that are free outside for families to come down to.
"Not everyone maybe wants to do the parade, or they don't want to be in a crowd, but they can come down to us because we're open.
