We were fortunate to visit this little fishing village on a beautiful sunny day. It is worthwhile to walk out on the pier to see the lighthouse up close and get a nice view of Ireland's Eye. This little island is a haven for all kinds of seabirds. I would recommend bringing a good set of binoculars! The highlight is... More

Great place to take a walk; easy day trip from Dublin City center. Easy trails of varying lengths. Pack a lunch or eat at the pub in the village or restaurants at the harbor.

My wife and I love to incorporate lots of walking/hiking into our travels. Our recent stay in Ireland was no exception. My FitBit recorded between 10 and 20 miles each day. It's the best way to experience a city or the countryside. On a beautiful Sunday PM we headed out on the Howth trail. No doubt, the views are stunning!!!... More

It's a beautiful place, with fantastic views when the weather is clear. It can get crowded though. Most walkers are courteous but not everyone. You need proper shoes - not flip-flops - as this is a rough track not a paved walk.

I came across the town of Howth on trip advisor and were able to easily get there on the DART. The hike on Howth Head was beautiful and there are different trails depending on... More
