Stay in an Airbnb! great little village with excellent hiking along the cliffs from the Summit and in the quarry. The castle has a wonderful little coffee shop where the culinary students sell their scones and tarts. Delicious!

As we most pleasantly discovered, there's no need to over-plan a trip to Howth from Dublin. Just take a DART from Dublin (about 25 minutes' journey), get off in Howth, go in the direction everyone else is going, and there'll be a booth where you...More

Came to Dublin and found the location a short can ride from the airport hotel. Most definitely worth a visit. Many fun restaurants and pubs nearby.

The path to Howth Head is perfect to change the normal atmosphere of a bussy day! After a 30 min walk down the hill, on a narrow path through buches you have the chance to admire a wonderful view and relax in a quiet place!...More

Sorry for delay, and I guess it is late now. There are a couple of beaches in the walk. But going from Howth they might be a bit far for town

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
