This is a good place for all ages. Can get a bus from the city where Howth is the last stop. Wonderful lush green hills. Facing the cold sea. It's got a lighthouse.

I agree with every positive review about these walks. If any confusion there is a small information booth near the main carpark with helpful staff & maps. We walked the purple trail, Frog in the Bog. Take the footpath all the way beside the harbour,...More
