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

Loved this hike and thought it was worth it. Took us about 1.5 hours at a moderate speed. Inclined are modest and roads are fairly well pathed. Only issue is the signage- not great.

Words are not enough to describe the beauty of the Cliff walk and the Howth Head. The rain was quite heavy during our visit, but the views were still unbelievable!

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.

Sorry for delay, and I guess it is late now. There are a couple of beaches in the walk. But going from Howth they might be a bit far for town

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
