We enjoyed an afternoon with a guided tour exploring the Howth area. The cliff drop off is impressive though and not for the faint of heart or vertigo sufferers. The views are spectacular.

If you have a couple of hours to spare - complete the Looped walk. From the village head past Balscadden Bay and take the Cliff Walk to the Summit. Return by the (easier) path from the summit to the village

There are two walk options here. 1. Over the summit ( short). 2. Lower down from Howth village.( longer ) Both have magnificent views on a clear day. Met Mr. Fox along the way. Well worth a visit.

I really enjoy walking in this natural beauty . Easy accessible from Dublin city center with public transportation bus/dart. Not needed a guided tour. Very easy to do alone, in big group and with Friends. Is quite easy to do.

Visited in May 2018. Good way to kill some time and take in a view, weather permitting. Gets breezy so dress accordingly. Great way to walk off lunch from down the hill.
