This week, the day job took us to the beautiful Lismore Castle & Gardens in County Waterford and wonderfully remote Hook Head Lighthouse in County Wexford. Rather than trying to do the trip in a single day, we decided to stay overnight in the village of Arthurstown on the Hook Peninsular and, of course, Baxter came too!
Our accommodation for the night was the family run Glendine Country House B & B overlooking the Barrow Estuary, where we were greeted with a warm welcome and invited into the guest lounge for afternoon tea.
Glendine Country House is a four star Georgian house set on its own grounds above the village of Arthurstown on the Hook Peninsula in South East Ireland. Built in 1830, the house is full of charm and still retains many of its original 19th century features.
Glendine is pet friendly and dogs may stay in bedrooms with their owners, as long as they are under supervision. Our room, situated at the front of the house, was spacious and had views over to the sea.
The house is perfectly located for exploring the south east coast of Ireland. Waterford is only 25 minutes drive via the car ferry and Wexford is only 35 minutes away. There are plenty of walks both locally and on Glendine’s 50 acres of private grounds.
There’s plenty to do on the Hook Peninsular, including beaches and historical sites sites such as Tintern Abbey, Ballyhack Castle, Duncannon Fort and the Hook Lighthouse. We’ll be writing more about this in future posts.
