  • Amazing views around in Howth to go for a walk on the cliff. You will see thousands of seagulls on the cliff, beautiful. Nice rocks on the beach. Highly recommended.
  • What a beautiful place. Take the DART train from Dublin to get there easily. Walk around Howth Peak and visit the village to have fish and chips.
