Stuck for something to do having visited the regular recommended Dublin sightseeing places, we found Howth. What a change from Dublin City centre. Lovely little fishing village with fantastic walks up and around Howth Head. Choice of walks depending on your mobility and stamina, although the signage wasn't fantastic we found our way eventually. Pub at the top of The... More

amazing Baily Lighthouse, In southern of the Head, The cliffs support a large colony of seabird and if it is clear the view is spectacular. If foggy it is instead very "irish"

Easy acces by dublin bus (route 31) to summit and easy walk on cliff path. From bus stop go up to car park, stunning view of dublin bay, city centre, dublin mountains, dun laoghaire. Must see! From car park u may take lovely walk on cliff paths around howth head.

This is a good place to spend the day. There is a nice walk around the peninsula of Howth where you can see the woods, the harbour, golf field and the cliffs. The walk around the cliffs is beautiful. You can see the cliffs full of seagulls shouting and the endless sea.

This is awesome. There are several ways on to the cliff walk, from the summit pub to the Pier in Howth. This picture is of the lighthouse, and there are so many ways to see it. Walk further towards sutton, and it skirts the sea and back up towards and around howth golf club. Get lost in here for hours... More

Short ride on the dart from Dublin. Very pretty area. Was able to see a local fisherman throw some fish to a seal.

We heard about Howth from a walking tour guide in Dublin. We had a few hours free one night and we really weren't up for the whole Dublin party scene so we decided to go. It's a short ride on a DART (about 30 minutes) and fairly cheap too. When we got there most everything was closed so we just... More

Just a short ride on the DART from Dublin and so worth the time. Quaint little village with a wonderful sea breeze to kiss your face. Conan O'Brien once said, "I love Ireland because the air feels right on my skin." I agree!

The walk around howth head is wonderful, obviously better in dry weather! Dusty path, best to wear trainers , it's an easy walk, takes about an hour, the views are just breathtaking , lots of fresh air ,then down to the village for brunch or Sunday lunch!
