Full Description

Ireland’s Eye Ferries are the Howth Coastal Boat Tour that get you up close and personal with small groups to the amazing wildlife, panoramic views and marine habitats of Ireland's East coast.​ Get back to nature on our Howth cliff cruises along the waterline of Howth Cliffs and Irelands Eye, home to wild seabirds such as gannets, guillemots, cormorants, kittiwakes, puffins and seagulls. Our small group Howth boat tours allow nature to take centre stage as we explore the nooks and crannies along the islands waterline, getting up close and personal with the mesmerising nature and wild creatures. This is a Nature Reserve protected by EU habitats and the core zone of the UN Dublin Bay Biosphere. See the large colony of seals around the island and in the water around the harbour. A spectacular natural feature is the huge freestanding rock called “the Stack”. Located at the northeastern corner of the island, it plays host to a large variety of seabirds.

  • Find your place among the ages and people of Ireland in the landscapes of Howth, Dublin, Lambay Island the coast from the Mountains of Mourne to Binn Eadair.
