Hook Tourism is a community organisation which aims to promote the Hook Peninsula as a premier tourist destination and to protect its unspoiled natural landscape and built heritage. A membership body made up of over 75 local businesses work together towards achieving these goals.
The organisation runs the peninsula tourist offices in the villages of Duncannon and Fethard-on-Sea. Hook Tourism led on the restoration of the Georgian walled gardens at Tintern Abbey and now operates the ‘Colclough Walled Garden’ as a major tourist attraction which is open to the public 365 days a year.
Hook Tourism also developed and maintains three woodland walking trails in the woods at Tintern Abbey; and runs annual events such as Hike to the Hook, a 20km road walk (www.hiketothehook.com); Tri the Hook Sprint Triathlon (www.trithehook.com) and the Hook Peninsula Photography Competition (www.hookpeninsula.com).
