Going to Howth feels like you're completely leaving Dublin, but it really is more the distance of a U.S. suburb to its central city. We took the DART, which was about a 20 minutes trip. It felt like we were in a small fishing village,...More

We came here shortly after landing in Ireland (our first night was here in Howth). We parked close (the second car park closest to the cliff path). We only went up the hill and just around the first bend, as my wife's knee was sore....More

The walk itself is not very difficult at all, it can be if you go off the main trail. The scenery is stunning. There are various points to start the walk from, either at the top or in the middle. The hike leads to a...More

I took the dart to Howth for the day to take a break from the hubbub of Dublin. The Cliff Path Loop trail head was a little tricky to follow off the start but I’m so glad I stuck with it. It’s a decent 1.5-2...More
