“Brilliant hike for all abilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Regardless of your walking ability a hike/ walk in Howth is a must! The views are breath-taking. There are four routes you can take...going from an easy cliff stroll to more advanced, demanding hikes. It is a stunning walk & you will get great photos here!! Great for friends and family whatever age you are.

“Very beautiful landscape.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Narrow path to have a walk over the cliffs, you can enjoy nice views of the Atlantic Sea and a lighthouse at the end of a little cape. Very recommendable.

“Stunning...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

So glad we took the time to do this cliff walk. The views were so beautiful. Not really safe for children however, so keep that in mind. Steep drop-offs in some places. The trail can get a bit muddy and slippery. As adults we loved it. A great way to exercise off our delicious seafood meal in Howth.

“Other side of Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

A place to run away from the city's mess, with a incredible view. Down there on the base of the hills is possible to find a very traditional fish and chips and many restaurants with a view of the beach. Really great to spend an afternoon, especially on the summer when there is also playgrounds seted up!

“Great for a cycle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Often cycle from Grand Canal out to Howth summit and back when the weather is good. You can go down the cycle track out by the sea at Clontarf then up the hill to the summit. If you like a good cycle this is great.
