  • This place is another spectacle of nature. It's a ride that everybody should do, you can take the tour boat for a price well accessible and with local guide explaining about the crossing points. Wonderful.

  • Thanks to Tripadvisor and the reviews from our community before we do, we went to explore this small fishing village. Accessible by Dart from Connolly Station (included in the Leap Card) you get this wonderful village made of one road and a unique landscape. A great walk, in preference of course with sunshine, where if you're lucky enough (like us) will meet the seals at sea and come to the surface to say hi!

  • With its Martello Tower, his old Abbey on the other side of the island, and the legend about how the devil was wounded with a holy book that forced it to fly and splitting a stone to return to the underworld, this island gives it a magical touch to Howth. ,

  • So it's 10€ to boat around the island and 15€ to land on it. But that's about it - this is literally just a boat ride around the island. That's great, and you do get some nice pictures, but there's no tour guide giving you a history of the Eye or anything - you basically spend 45 minutes on a small boat with some picture opportunities. For that price, I was honestly expecting a bit more.
  • If you're looking for a great trip around one of the most amazing landmarks in Ireland, look no further than Ireland's Eye Ferries. Their prices are really fair at €10 for a trip around the island and just an extra €5 to explore it yourself, and they are without a doubt the best and friendliest service for getting to Ireland's Eye. I noticed that some of the other services don't even give you the option to land on the island! Anyway, I was very glad that I found this ferry service and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to do around Howth!
