North-east of the bustling urban centre of Dublin, lays a quaint and peaceful peninsula waiting to be explored. Just a short journey out of town brings you to Howth, a little fishing village nestled in stunning natural scenery which is perfect for a fantastic few hours out of Dublin. Breath-taking views will await us as we stroll along a coastline which is both beautiful & sublime while we dig into the fascinating history which has played out here next the cliffs.
Discover ancient monuments, Neolithic standing stones & medieval ruins, hear about Viking raids, gun-running during the rebellion, and the bloody stream, see Howth castle, Baily lighthouse, St. Mary's Abbey & the 18th Century Martello Tower, Howth harbour - home to some playful seals and Ireland's eye - a little uninhabited island.
You will also have the opportunity to dine on some of the tastiest traditional fish & chips you are ever likely to eat and, of course, sup a delicious pint or two in a proper Howth pub.
An ideal way to dive into the real, wild, green, awesome nature of Ireland just a stone's throw from the city.
