Info

Howth is an ancient fishing village just outside of Dublin, surrounded by nature and steeped in legends. Although it's just a short train ride away you'll find yourself lost in time, where mysterious Neolithic standing stones are scattered on the outcrops among medieval ruins, lonely lighthouses and 18th-century coastal defences. Our tour is a full day-trip to the magical location where Dubliners go to escape the city and enjoy the countryside.

You don’t need to spend the day sitting on a bus to see rural Ireland.

Howth is an ancient fishing village just outside of Dublin, surrounded by nature and steeped in legends. From pre-history to modern times the wild rocky peninsula has seen some of the most crucial events and bloody battles that have shaped Irish history. Catch sight of incredible views of Dublin and (weather permitting) Wales and Northern Ireland.

Although it's just a short train ride away, you’ll find yourself lost in time, where mysterious Neolithic standing stones are scattered on the outcrops among medieval ruins, lonely lighthouses, and 18th-century coastal defenses. The relics of past invaders are set against the backdrop of dramatic scenery and wildlife. You might even spot guillemots, eagles, and seals during a spectacular clifftop walk.

Spend six hours in this beautiful setting, so you have time to fully appreciate this fascinating place and get the best out of the trip. Unsurprisingly, Howth has amazing fresh fish and seafood available and some of the best real Irish pubs you'll ever find.

  • Howth gun-running
