The path to Howth Head is perfect to change the normal atmosphere of a bussy day! After a 30 min walk down the hill, on a narrow path through buches you have the chance to admire a wonderful view and relax in a quiet place!...More

But wow. Great views, looks like a decent hike through the place too. Give yourself a few hours, and you can reward yourself with some great food in Howth village too.
