Welcome to Howth, a fishing village on the Howth Head peninsula along Dublin Bay. Come along for one of Mark’s Free Walking Tours and trace the path of pirates and kings. Yes, the walking tour really is free! Learn about Howth’s early Viking days...more
Highly recommend this tour with Mark and his dog Missy! We paid for a tour around Howth and could not have been more pleased! Mark was beyond awesome!! The tour was laid back, fun and a great way to explore the city. Would recommend to...More
Thanks Mark, we really enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks for the amazing review David. I had a great time on the tour and thoroughly enjoyed the company along the way. The kids are a credit to yourselves, very well mannered. And the teachers weren't bad either 😜
