To the north, 14 km from the city centre Dublin (still marked by 18th-century milestones), the peninsula of Howth is very nice for a walk (when you have the nice weather). Just take the bus (No. 31) or DART (from Connolly Station) out to Howth and walk around the cliffs! The whole tour takes about 2-3 hours. It is most beautiful in Aug/Sept when the heather bathes the cliffs in red. There is also a boat that departs from Howth harbour that goes out to the island off the coast called Ireland's Eye. You can visit it and the monolithic ruins on it for a very reasonable price and if you're lucky you might be able to get the island to yourself.
The King Sitric (fish restaurant) at the harbor serves freshly caught fish at eye watering prices.
