I would recommend to go there from Dublin city and enjoy the views. Just take your time and bring good walking shoes

Just find some green grass, down the cliff and sit down. Then close your eyes and feel the beauty of this place. The breeze, sound of ocean, soft grass are enough to take away your pain and give you a peaceful mind.

Beautiful unspoilt cliffs just a stone's throw from the city. Great pub serving fresh fish and chips and excellent beer. A must!

Lovely cliff walks for tourists but follow the signs and don't walk on your own as it can be a bit remote. Fab views of ferries coming in and out of Dublin Bay and some sailing boats and yachts. Some famous people in Show Biz...More

My friend and I walked around the city for a bit before making our way along the cliff walk. We walked for maybe 30 minutes before eventually settling down for a picnic dinner and enjoying the view of what lay before us. Surely no other...More

Really nice place worth visiting. Beautiful landscape, romantic place. But a bit far from city center.

I've been to Dublin countless times but never to Howth head and it will be somewhere I send people and will return to in the future. Amazing views to been seen, from fishing boats off the coast, cliff jumpers braving the Irish Sea to all...More

There is a nice beach in Howth just behind the dart station. You cant miss it. Just follow the crowd! However, it is mostly a pebble beach. There is a nice pier with a number of restaurants, cafes and a park with swings etc.

No. Just show up to the Connolly train station and purchase. The express takes about 20 minutes to Howth. This station mainly serves Ireland East. You will have to check on the times. Easy, very scenic ride. Enjoy... More

Howth head and the walks are best done in your own. The walks are all well marked with colours each telling you how long they all take. They range from 45 mins to 3 hours so good selection. If you arrive by train turn left... More
