If you are more than a day in Dublin and you enjoy outdoor activities, going to Howth should be in your visit list. Just take the train (35-40 min ride from Dublin city centre) and you arrive to a paradise. From the train station take to the left and keep walking, just straight and keep walking. .. The views are... More

Although we stayed in Dublin, it was easy to reach Howth. We took the tram to the main train station and easily found the correct train to this charming fishing village with great beauty. We walked and walked and this short hike to see the Irish Sea should not be missed. Keep walking until it dead ends for the best... More

Our first excursion after landing in Dublin was tackling a rental car, left side driving and traffic to venture out the peninsula to Howth Head. We encountered a rugby tournament, some bushes and curbs and finally the sea. It was a beautiful drive as most seacoasts are...many photo ops and friendly locals ready with directions and tales. Not sure we... More

Howth has always been a chosen haunt of my family. We used to travel from Howth Harbour to Howth Head on the tram - there is an attractive laneway in its stead nowadays. When I visit I stay with a great childhood friend of mine and we usually sample the delights of one of the excellent local restaurants (although sadly... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our trip around the Bog of Frogs walk on Howth Head. This is a fantastic free amenity set up by local volunteers and Fingal County Council. Signage was very clear and the paths were well maintained. It takes in great views and a nice mixture of cliff, beach, woods. The 10km loop was just... More
