Just a 'quick' drive out of Dublin: that is a subjective statement, of course, but went there twice - each time took about 30 mins. There are local buses as well, from City Centre, I believe. The views were so well worth it, I drove...More
I brought my elderly Aunt and Uncle to see Howth Head as she used to live in Ireland and remembered being there as a child. They really enjoyed the scenery and were able to get a good view from the vantage point without too much...More
The walk to the summit along the coastal pathway is simply breathtaking. It remind s me of Bondi to Coogee beaches in Sydney and only 22 minutes on the DART from Connolly.

I am lucky enough to live near Howth, and never, ever take it for granted. It is like amazing to take the cliff walk from Howth Summit to the village (or the longer walk from the Sutton Martello tower) ... one could be on the...More
I visited this place on my short trip to Dublin and it was really amazing. The cliffs were so beautiful and I can recommend anyone who's visiting Dublin to get on the train and spend an afternoon here.
Travelled from Dublin to Howth via the dart train!What a lovely place fishing village extraordinaire.Just beautiful enjoyed walking around the docks many fishing boats and fish shops with a variety of seafood.Wonderful places to eat among the docks.A must see if you are in Dublin.
No. Just show up to the Connolly train station and purchase. The express takes about 20 minutes to Howth. This station mainly serves Ireland East. You will have to check on the times. Easy, very scenic ride. Enjoy... More

Easy, very scenic ride. Enjoy! Stop into the Abbey Tavern if you can, on the hill. Great food and around the corner from an old Abbey the overlooks the sea.

Howth head and the walks are best done in your own. The walks are all well marked with colours each telling you how long they all take. They range from 45 mins to 3 hours so good selection. If you arrive by train turn left out of the station and walk up through the village to the end where the pier wall starts. There are some toilets here as well! From here you can decide which walk you want based on the colours on the sign. You can stop at the head and walk back down to the village or carry on see more of the coastline. There is a pub by the head called the summit. Very popular with tourists because of its location at the head but also because it is outside the bus stop too. My advice is wait until you get back to village and eat and drink in The Bloody Stream. Great old fashioned up with wonderful food. It is right next to the train station as well so very handy.
