Connect with the land, sea and the sky of this famous UNESCO Biosphere on this exciting Howth hiking tour. Get off the beaten track under the skin of Dublin and Ireland. Are you ready for 10kms in about 4 hours?  Gnarly and beautiful coastal experience all year around.  Nobody knows it better.


Dive into the nature and history of Ireland. Tune your senses and spirit to the Zen Druids of Howth. Feel ancient romance and resonance at Aideen's Grave, a druidic altar and gateway to the Otherworld as old as the pyramids. Climb to HG Wells' most beautiful view in the world. Read the weather from the salty air and cool breezes on your cheeks. Follow WB Yeats' Fairy Road down to the sea and the cliffs. Surrender to the whispers of the woodland the forest and stories of the trees. Tough weather means wild storms, crashing waves and lashing seas. Take the next steps into the myths and legends of 10,0000 years. Small groups to make sure you dont get lost in the crowd.

35 easy minutes from Dublin city centre by Dart or 31Bus with free wifi, or taxi. 

 

Tips:
We recommend cross trainers, boots or stout shoes.  Keep an eye on the weather and think about a light waterproof, gloves, scarf and hat in a backpack. Water and a snack wouldn't hurt either. Covid 19 makes your personal independence more important than ever and the main risk we have is transmission by handling.  

Get the 31 or 31/a bus from Talbot street in the city centre, sit up stairs, up front or on the right hand side and treat yourself to a coastal tour and intimate review of Dublin as you make your way out to join us in Howth.  The Dart works well too ( Dublin Area Rapid Transit ) and both have excellent free WIFI.
