DescriptionAn ancient fishing village located just outside of Dublin, Howth surrounded by nature and steeped in legend. For generations it has been Dublin’s number one day trip destination. 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. The incredible views of Dublin and nearby islands will take your breath away. On this 6-hour guided tour see mysterious Neolithic stones standing alongside medieval ruins and 18th-century coastal defenses. The relics of past invaders are set against the backdrop of dramatic scenery and wildlife. Be on the lookout for guillemots, eagles, seals and more on a spectacular cliff-top walk. Howth is noted for its fresh fish and seafood and some of the best Irish pubs you’re likely to visit anywhere. Sturdy footwear is advised, as you’ll be exploring the countryside on foot, rather than sitting on a bus.
