Easy scenic walk

A nice way to blow off the cobwebs of too much Guinness & to escape the bustle of Dublin centre. The bonus is the seafood choice & bespoke wee shops.

Arguably this is one of the most beautiful places in Dublin. Loads of variation but the best walks are looped. Super accessible and not too challenging and its proximity to the village makes it an unmissable stop over in Dublin!

We had quite a bit of time before our flight out of Dublin so visited Howth and really enjoyed some walking with gorgeous views. This place is a short drive from the airport.

Grab a pair of good shoes and a windproof jacket and you are in for a great hike. Combine this either brunch in the cafes/restaurants before you leave or with lunch afterwards

Great scenery for a few hours of walk and chilling. There are plenty off road trails, but be careful, these are cliffs afterall

We travelled to Howth by the Dart. There a four different routes you can take we took the longest setting out from the Railway station. There are no facilities of any kind till you finish the walk where you started, but there are shops by the station. You will need stout shoes/boots as the route is quite rugged in places... More
