We did the howth cliff walk, it is very nice and easy. You arrive to the train station of Howth and you have to walk through the city, there are maps explaining the different routes marked by colors. I think we chose the green route but at some point we stopped seeing it and only saw red and blue points. Anyway the hike is not difficult, the terrain is good. It doesnt feel dangerous. You have nice views. Must be more enjoyable in the summer.

We stayed in Dublin and decided to take the train to Howth for the day to try the loop hiking trails and eat lunch in the cute little seaside town. We really enjoyed the views and the hiking trails offer loops for all levels of hikers. Great day trip from Dublin!

Howth is a very beautiful place, very easy to access from Dublin city center with the dart.
Hikes are easy (the elevation is pretty low), you can see the sea from almost every part of the hike and paths are well indicated and maintained. Several paths are available, the shortest taking a little under 2hours I think.

Drove out to howth to do the Loop walk. Took around 2 hours. Well worth it. The scenery was fantastic. Beautiful walk to pass a few hours. We even spotted some friendly seals in the harbour.

Lovely walk along the cliffs of Howth. Some steep parts but you can turn back at any time. We went about 2.5km in and back and we had beautiful views.

Great place to walk and enjoy the views and some of the sea life of Dublin Bay. It’s similar to Bray Head walk on the far side of the bay facing South.

Howth is a very special place for me, because it is so beautiful there! The sea, the nature all around and the perfect view! I was there in 15 June 2017

We were supposed to goto Hills of Moher and Galway but our was cancelled due to strong winds. Howth was suggested by a really nice lady at the Dublin Visitor Center on O’Connell Street.

We took the train to Howth and spent almost a full day hiking (spectacular views despite a bit windy weather which was expected for February) and walking around town. We even got to saw dolphins during our hike. We would have gone further on to the Light House but the trail was under construction so we turned back and walked to where we started.

We also tried Beshoffs fish and chips and the scampi as a treat which were delicious.

Highly recommend.

There are good paths and great views. The Castle can be seen from outside. Why not book a guide like Shane?
