The sunniest of days in Howth
Jun 2020
An absolutely fabulous tour of Howth with Conor who gave us fascinating insights into the past, present and even future of this very special part of Dublin. We were absolutely blessed with perfect sunshine and the tour had everything - the storytelling of the ancient Dolmen in the woods and Grace O'Malley the pirate Queen's legacy as well as the spectacular coastal views. We felt on top of the world and resigned ourselves to be present in the moment and take in the breathtaking views that a camera could never do justice to. To top it all as we descended the hill gasping for a good cup of coffee , Conor took us passed all the long lines of people and to the end of the pier and a gorgeous coffee shop with the best coffee in town and best of all no line outside - a hidden gem that only a skilled tour guide would know of. We all loved it - highly recommend the tour.

Fantastic! Beautiful! Great Guide!
Dec 2019 • Family
Wow! The coastal walk with Paula and chowder at the end was a fantastic way to see, learn about, and experience Howth and east Ireland. Definitely the best part of my trip!
Paula was so knowledgeable with her history of Howth, the castle (still lived in!), the beautiful forest and cliffs...She brought us to the top of a hill that surely has the best view of Dublin, Dublin Bay and the Irish sea!..You can even see the east coast all the way to Northern Ireland! A short walk through the neighbourhoods to the cliffs allows you to see a variety of Irish houses, and the view of the Harbour and Ireland’s eye from the cliff are breathtaking! Down at Howth pier were many colourful boats. The pier is lined with cafés and fish shops (and of course a light house) where we stopped at the end of our tour to eat the best chowder I have ever had! Served with irish brown bread and loaded with fresh fish, Mussels, scallops and crab..THIS IS A MUST DO EXPERIENCE when in Dublin! Make sure you bring some good running shoes or boots and be ready to walk for a couple of hours up and down the hills, forests And town of beautiful Howth!
