  • By car, you may get easily to the wall and start your walk. I used the Luas to the last station - The point - and took a taxi to the wall. The driver told me that there are no taxies to take me back. ...  more »

  • It's just a lighthouse, but pretty beautiful and with a nice walk to get here. Important: if you're coming from the city centre, I suggest you to take a bus till Sandymount. There's a lovely path along the sea, otherwise you'll find yourself in a stinky industrial area, without a cycle lane or a decent footpath.
  • I've walked down to the lighthouse about few times and it's a very good walk. It is also a very good exercise. I think it helps me to get rid of my stress. That lighthouse is absolutely lovely and I love the red colour but my favourite colour is blue.
  • A bit far, but it is worth to go. Relaxing place where to enjoy an amazing view of Howth and the Dublin bay, especially during sunset! It is often windy.
  • Great walk out to Poolbeg where you can see the ships come in. If you pick a day when the wind is easterly, you'll see kite surfers out at Bull Island
  • Fabulous walk. Lived in Dublin all my life didn't know it existed (embarassing!). Not suitable for buggies/wheelchairs. It's a rocky path. Amazing views of the whole of Dublin and the Dublin and wicklow mountains.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
