Lovely view of the coast and the trek to the top of the hill isn't too strenuous. Nice to get away from Dublin city centre (only 25 minutes on the DART train).

A nice way to blow off the cobwebs of too much Guinness & to escape the bustle of Dublin centre. The bonus is the seafood choice & bespoke wee shops.

We had quite a bit of time before our flight out of Dublin so visited Howth and really enjoyed some walking with gorgeous views. This place is a short drive from the airport.

Grab a pair of good shoes and a windproof jacket and you are in for a great hike. Combine this either brunch in the cafes/restaurants before you leave or with lunch afterwards
