Great place to start a hike down to Howth Harbour, take the 30 /a bus up from Howth. Or walk up from the Harbour and finish here, Summit House 100M down from summit parking lot, bus stop also right here.

Really beautiful scenery and is all things Ireland. Climbing out of the harbor the scenery gets better and better, The summit gives great views out to the sea, back to Howth harbor and into Dublin depending on weather and clouds and such.
