Hook Head Tide Clock

Hook Head (Irish: Rinn Duáin) is a headland in County Wexford, Ireland located on the east side of the estuary of The Three Sisters (Rivers Nore, Suir and Barrow). It is part of the Hook peninsula and is adjacent to the historic townland of Loftus Hall.

In Irish its name was originally Rinn Dubháin, Dubhán’s point, named for a 5th-century Brittonic saint of that name (literally “little black [haired] one”). The English name is possibly a calque of his name, incorrectly read as being dubán, “fishing-hook.”

This area is renowned as the location of Hook Lighthouse, the oldest working lighthouse in the world.
