Howth Head Reviews
Howth Head has great cliff walks and is a great place to exercise. Also the views are really amazing. Recommended more »
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..... more »
Fantastic cliffs and a lovely village. Excellent weekend getaway and if possible so go for the cliff walk.
The perfect place for a walk when the weather is lovely. The views are amazing. I wouldn’t recommend going if it’s too windy though, some of the cliff paths can be a bit thin.
