Hook Peninsula -County Wexford

When you visit Tintern Abbey on the Hook Peninsula you should also pay attention to the immediate surroundings. The monastery is surrounded by a woodland with a show garden, the “Colclough Walled Garden”, as well as several enchanted ruins. A walk along one of the marked trails is a real discovery tour. In spring, the forest gives off an intense garlic note. No wonder, as many parts of the forest are covered by a wide carpet of wild garlic.
