Hi Tina, It was great to get out with you, and exciting to discover you had picked up the Danish TV programme about James Joyce I was on. The Danes seem very pleasantly delighted to discover they have a natural home here since the 8th Century. Thanks for coming out, and thanks for the great review, I look forward to meeting you both again, and maybe even Leif and Lena ! I hope you all enjoyed a nice hygge evening by the fire. Is mise, le meas, Shane

Hi Terris, You are right, it is more than a walking tour it is a 6 mile hike over varied terrain, mostly off road. Thats a great review, thanks for taking the time, and you have pretty much described everything we are trying to do. See you next time with Shanes Howth Adventures ! is mise, le meas, Shane
