“If you love walking and a great view this is the place for you.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Bring your boots and walking sticks as it is quite a hike. The views are spectacular over Dublin Bay and Howth. Don't forget your camera as the birdlife is very good also.

“Lovely walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Howth head is a great place for a walk. Their is a great view of Dublin bay and a very scenic cliff walk. To top it all Howth has a great little seaside village with many restaurants and takeaways offering fresh caught fish. Great for a pint of Guinness too.

“Lovely views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The views from here are lovely although I did visit in October and it was cold and wet but I will be back in the summer when the weather will hopefully be a little nicer. There are some lovely places to eat in and around Howth itself.

“Magnificient Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Breathtaking views across the bay of Dublin over to the southside, Dun Laoghaire and so on. Do the walk from there into the village, its not long but its nice. Have a pint in the Summit pub, grab a bite to eat, lots of options here and indeed Howth itself is a beautiful place to explore.
