Best way to get not far out of Dublin and see what Ireland's nature is really made of. It is more worth to see on good weather but as you can't expect it do it anyways

I cannot begin to explain how beautiful it is here. Wear your hiking shoes, wear layers, bring your camera and get ready for some spectacular views!

Do yourself a favor and park your vehicle and walk around this little town. The views you will find are the best in the area.

Easily reached by train from the city Centre, a beautiful old traditional fishing harbour with plenty of places to eat where you can buy fresh fish and enjoy a coastal walk and good lunch afterwards. In the good weather there are nice boat trips out...More

Great place for a walk with the family. Got parking no problem and walked down along the cliffs for some fresh air. Visited the Summit Inn afterwards for some lunch. Something for everyone on the cliff walks.

Wow! It was a long walk but it was well worth it. Beautiful walk that was very chilly, so wear layers. I would not recommend the walk for the elderly nor young children.

To get to the lighthouse takes you quite some walking time (if you start in Howth) but the views you get on it are fantastic and also the motives for taking photos! I think you can also take your car closer as there is a...More

It's possible that it will be raining, it's Ireland. Cold yes, but that depends on what you consider cold. I personally don't like the cold, but when dressed appropriately all is good! Everything like restaurants, pubs... More
