Howth Coastal Path

With its stunning panoramic views, glance north to County Down’s Mountains of Mourne, south to the lush green Wicklow Mountains, and straight ahead for the expanse of Dublin city and its bay in between.

Howth is a bustling village that offers visitors a myriad of attractions – look out for Lambay Island, Ireland’s Eye, Howth Castle, The National Transport Museum, the Martello Tower and the brilliantly visible Baily Lighthouse, along with the legendary burial cairn at the peak of your walk.

Wildlife enthusiasts will adore this area, particularly Ireland’s Eye and its bird sanctuary, which boasts guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, gulls and gannets to name just a few. If you’re lucky, you may even see grey seals diving for fish just offshore.
