The peninsula was originally an island but is now connected to the mainland via a tombolo, or narrow strip of land. Enjoy the picturesque scenery and watch for wildlife that thrives on the seaside cliffs. On a clear day, you can see the Wicklow Mountains and Dublin in the distance. Leave time for a stop at the Baily lighthouse and Howth, a nearby fishing village. Using our world travel planner, Howth attractions like Howth Head can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
