Hiking hill of Howth circuit co, Dublin

From: 30.00


We will meet at the the car park beside the public toilets on the main Howth pier in North county Dublin. This is a lovely gentle hike, ideal for those starting to go hill walking and some gentle steeper ground that gives epic views of the sea and back onto the Dublin city skyline and beyond to the Wicklow and Mourne Mountains.

Our hike starts on the quiet road up past the Martello tower and the ancient Tower hill past the home of WB Yeats and within 5 mins we turn onto the coastal path along side the Irish sea gaining gently in height as we go and on up to the summit area all the while keeping our eyes focused on the amazing Birds and sealife. Then we continue down to to the legendary Bailey Lighthouse. From here we continue along the cliff trail heading onto hidden gems of tiny beaches and epic viewing points of Dublin bay. After Red Rock beach we will head in land and go to the highest point on howth, Binn Eadir, at 171m. Here we can see most of Howth, Irelands eye and Lambay and the majestic Wicklow and Dublin peaks plus the Mourne mountains to the North. Finally we start returning back towards our meeting point via the very famous and ancient Cowbooters lane. Here we can chat a little about the ancients Na Fianna hunting grounds or maybe The remember the rebel Silken Thomas in 1534 and his cannon. Finally we arrive back to our starting point.
