Built in the 13th century as a navigation aid by William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, as a part of his development of his Lordship of Leinster. The massive structure has three stone vaulted chambers with a spiral stairway ascending through the thickness of the wall. According to tradition, a warning beacon was established at Hook Head in the 6th century by a Welsh monk named Dubhan, whose church still exists at nearby Churchtown. His successors were appointed custodians of Marshal's Tower and continu ed to keep the light for several centuries. Visitors to one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world will experience a journey through time from the story of the 6th century beacon up to present day light keeping.
