We were on a tour of Malahide Castle and a stop was built in at Howth. It is a beautiful and charming town. I could have stayed all day and even overnight. If I return to Ireland, I plan to do an overnight in Howth....More

From the carpark at the top of Howth Hill there is a great walk along the cliffs with superb views of the Irish sea. On a good day this is spectacular. Quite a few seats and places to sit and watch the birds, relax and...More

This was a fantastic walk. There were 4 routes to walk. We took the shorter one as we weren’t sure how much it would take. It took nearly 2 hours but we had a small picnic.

Had a great afternoon at Howth Head. Weather cooperated so walk the marina path and enjoyed fish and chips and a pint. Traffic a little slow ... but why the hurry!

Lovely little seaside Port, we used the DART rail from Dublin. Lots of graffiti an the sides of track, maybe they should ask the ‘artists’ to do a Banksy type art so we could appreciate it. I was disgruntled as looking for a toilet used...More

Stunning cliff side walk a short train or bus journey from Dublin. Beautiful views across Dublin Bay and out to sea. Some parts not for the faint hearted or who suffer from vertigo as one of the paths takes you close to the cliff edge....More

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
