Experience the natural beauty of Howth Head as you walk on paths through hilly and rugged terrain. 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.

  • Wonderful walk and views, make sure you have good shoes. Can be crowded on weekend afternoons, morning clear on both weekdays and week ends.  more »
  • I got us lost because the Yellow arrows randomly disappeared - We were obviously just too into the views & missed it. Absolutely stunning walk, it won't be my last!  more »
  • Good Tour despite the Irish weather. We made the trip with the Maxi of Sandemans Tours Guide and it's worth much because it teaches you the hidden secrets of Howth. A very picturesque place and it is worth visiting!
