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
Took the train from Dublin’s Tara St Station to Howth. Very convenient, comfortable, and clean. Short walk from the station to the port near the village, and its lighthouse. Beautiful waterfront views. Hiked up to Howth Head, near the summit after an excellent coffee at...More
Just a 'quick' drive out of Dublin: that is a subjective statement, of course, but went there twice - each time took about 30 mins. There are local buses as well, from City Centre, I believe. The views were so well worth it, I drove...More
I brought my elderly Aunt and Uncle to see Howth Head as she used to live in Ireland and remembered being there as a child. They really enjoyed the scenery and were able to get a good view from the vantage point without too much...More
The walk to the summit along the coastal pathway is simply breathtaking. It remind s me of Bondi to Coogee beaches in Sydney and only 22 minutes on the DART from Connolly.

I am lucky enough to live near Howth, and never, ever take it for granted. It is like amazing to take the cliff walk from Howth Summit to the village (or the longer walk from the Sutton Martello tower) ... one could be on the...More
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... More
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.

What coastal route?
Do you know these restaurants in Girvan? (5 Replies)
We're spending one night at the Woodlands Bay Hotel in mid-May. Just received an email from that saying that their restaurant will not be open for dinner this season (is open from breakfast & lunch apparently). We had planned to eat there after a long days drive down from Oban. Now I'm trying to come up with a place that would be casual and not be too terribly far away! After doing some research I've found 3 restaurants in Girvan - does anyone have any first hand knowledge of them? They...More

The Roxy is a pub which does pretty reasonable food. Not been to the others but would have no hesitation in recommending The Roxy
Glacial Lagoon and South Shore package tour? (3 Replies)
Hi: We are considering the Icelandair tour described below. Has anyone done this? Is it worth it? We are concerned we will spend the whole day on the bus and not have enough time at sites. We have hotels each night in Reykjavik, so we will be daytripping on tours and with a car in any case. Thanks! "Head along the magnificent South Coast of Iceland, an area of mountain passes, black sand beaches and magical waterfalls. You will know you are entering glacier country when you drive...More

This is a 14 hour tour. The tour is actually a combo of two tours, but does not stop at all the places they do. IMO this tour is not worth doing. I would recommend trying to make this a two, or even better a three day tour, staying in the area of the glaciers for one or two nights.
