Going to Howth feels like you're completely leaving Dublin, but it really is more the distance of a U.S. suburb to its central city. We took the DART, which was about a 20 minutes trip. It felt like we were in a small fishing village,...More

We took bus 32 from Dublin city center the 45 minutes to Howth summit. The bus driver will guide you up the hill. There is a map in the car park showing the route options, distances and estimated time needed. It is a magnificent location...More

We came here shortly after landing in Ireland (our first night was here in Howth). We parked close (the second car park closest to the cliff path). We only went up the hill and just around the first bend, as my wife's knee was sore....More

The walk itself is not very difficult at all, it can be if you go off the main trail. The scenery is stunning. There are various points to start the walk from, either at the top or in the middle. The hike leads to a...More

I took the dart to Howth for the day to take a break from the hubbub of Dublin. The Cliff Path Loop trail head was a little tricky to follow off the start but I’m so glad I stuck with it. It’s a decent 1.5-2...More

The stunning views from the top of the cliffs are worth the effort to climb the path. We took the DART train from Dublin for $6.15 euro round trip. It takes only about a half an hour to get to Howth. It was such a...More

The DART from Dublin runs every 20 minutes or so ( return ticket priced a little over €6) and takes about 30 minutes to get there. There are a number of walks that can be taken along the cliff path that extend up to the...More

Lovely walk around the cliff loop walk in Howth. I'd recommend decent walking shoes as the path can be narrow and rocky in parts. Usually quite busy on a sunny day. Suprisingly bright green contrasting water around the coast. Something I didn't expect in Dublin....More
