Great hiking trail and a great place to take photos! Howth is only a 20 minute trail ride out from Dublin on the Dart - definitely worth the trip for the view :)

Such a lovely walk this, although not good if you suffer from vertigo. Some of the drops from the path would be very unforgiving. The views are so good though, especially on a fine day. Lots to explore and take in.

Magnificent walk around Howth Head from the summit around the loop and down to the village.
Plenty of parking either you start at the summit or at the other end down in the village.
The path is well worn through the gorse and bracken and afford the most magnificent views of Dublin Bay Ireland's Eye, the sea and the coast. Its an easy enough walk as long as you are wearing appropriate footwear.

If you're in Dublin for a few days you might consider visiting Howth and doing the cliff walks. I would not advising bringing kids or young children on this walk as there are no barriers between the walk and the cliff edge. There are 4 walks you can do, the shortest is 4or5km and will take up to 1hour 30mins. The longest route will take around 3to4hours. The views are amazing as you look out over Howth and Ireland's Eye Island. Bring good walk shoes or boots, water and a rain jacket just in case of the changeable Irish weather. After you finish treat yourself to a well deserved pint or beautiful seafood in one of the many great bars and restaurants in Howth.

What a fabulous walk. There are a variety of loop walks available with stunning views. You can access the walk from Howth village and park there or from the scenic route and park at the top of the head. The views are stunning and it is a fabulous walk away from all the traffic and the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Highly recommend loved it.

We were visiting Dublin in March just as the corona virus was becoming a pandemic in the US so we had to change our flight to get back home quickly. Our last day in Dublin, we took the train to Howth to walk around. We found so many cool things to see and even though some places were already closed due to CV, we enjoyed a hike and watching cliff divers. We plan to return another time after things are back to “normal.”

We took the train from the city centre and that took us about 45 minutes. We had read the reviews and booked a restaurant before we left the city to make sure we got a good table.

We walked around for about 2 hours and it's just so lovely! Could not recommend it enough.
Bring a warm jacket as it can be pretty windy. However, it was all still with no wind when we were there and the sun set in the horizon. A magical day and evening.

Make sure to eat some of the newly fished seafood! Delish!

You can start it from the summit or from the light house or from the other end from the pier. No high heels or flip flops recommended! You have a lower or an higher path.. whoever your walk starts you can find a pub at the end of this gentle hike. Choose your weather, it is not wise to go at the nose during strong winds. When the weather is rainy not much you will enjoy if you don’t like muddy feet. I just simply love this place.
