Dublin: Howth Coastal Boat Tour with Ireland's Eye Ferries

19 Reviews
Tours Culture & history Nature & adventure

Cruise the coast from the most beautiful Dublin coastal village of Howth on a short rustic boat trip around Ireland's Eye. Experience amazing wildlife, birds, panoramic views, and marine habitats.


  • Observe the beauty of this nature reserve up close and personal
  • Smell the sea and feel the sky. Get in touch with nature
  • Listen to the tales about the Celts, Vikings and Anglo Normans who past this way
  • Photograph the large seal colony from the boat on your trip around the island
  • Enjoy live commentary from your skipper and some very local Irish music


Our small and intimate group tours leave the Harbour behind on a voyage of discovery spotting the seasonal sea life along the way, puffins, seals, gannets and guillemots to name a few. Onboard our small boats we are able to get up close to the world famous UNESCO designated Dublin Bay Biosphere, Ireland's Eye Island, caves and marine life. See the famous Howth cliffs and village on our rustic and authentic boat trip, hearing about the famous history and insider tales of this incredible peninsula. When you return to the ferry port there are several seafood restaurants along the pier to enjoy, each one better than the other. Nature takes centre stage as we explore the nooks and crannies along the islands waterline, getting up close and personal with the mesmerising nature and wild creatures. This is a Nature Reserve protected by EU habitats and the core zone of the UN Dublin Bay Biosphere. The most spectacular natural feature, however, is the huge freestanding rock called “the Stack”. Located at the northeastern corner of the island, it plays host to a large variety of seabirds. There is nothing quite like the experience of the sea from a purpose built boat with a friendly, salty and expert skipper.
