Lonely Planet has listed Hook Heritage Centre and lighthouse in County Wexford as one of the top 14 attractions in Ireland and the no 1 flashiest lighthouse in the world.
The present structure is about 800 years old and is the oldest operating lighthouse in the world.
Many English language students of the Slaney Language Centre in Wexford have spend some of their time in Ireland in and around this amazing lighthouse and would definately agree with Ben Handicott, the Lonely Planet author.
