My husband and I aren't in excellent shape but had no trouble hiking out here. You definitely want to wear comfy shoes though. It was a beautiful view, one of my favorite places in Dublin.

Our taxi driver, Noel, recommended we go to Howth. We did and what a nice surprise! The walk was very pleasant, albeit muddy in places. The views were worth the walk alone. Howth Head has a lighthouse , which is obvious while on the trail....More

Such a great view not for the faint hearted but very satisfying when you get there. It isn't the safest climb/walk in muddy conditions so be careful when you do go. Well worth a views.

We did a 6 kilo cliff walk which took us to the summit. The view is spectacular and well worth the physical exertion. This is a once in a lifetime experience.

The views are fantastic, but require a hike. You can go as far as you want and then turn around. Must do a bit of cliff walk, but be prepared for the hike.
