No. Just show up to the Connolly train station and purchase. The express takes about 20 minutes to Howth. This station mainly serves Ireland East. You will have to check on the times. Easy, very scenic ride. Enjoy! Stop into the Abbey Tavern if you can, on the hill. Great food and around the corner from an old Abbey the overlooks the sea.

Howth head and the walks are best done in your own. The walks are all well marked with colours each telling you how long they all take. They range from 45 mins to 3 hours so good selection. If you arrive by train turn left out of the station and walk up through the village to the end where the pier wall starts. There are some toilets here as well! From here you can decide which walk you want based on the colours on the sign. You can stop at the head and walk back down to the village or carry on see more of the coastline. There is a pub by the head called the summit. Very popular with tourists because of its location at the head but also because it is outside the bus stop too. My advice is wait until you get back to village and eat and drink in The Bloody Stream. Great old fashioned up with wonderful food. It is right next to the train station as well so very handy.
