1. Howth Head
The Howth Head peninsula, immortalized in James Joyce’s classic novel Ulysses, is one of Dublin’s most picturesque escapes, a rugged headland jutting out over Dublin Bay. Located above the lively Howth village, 15km northeast of the city center, the Howth cliffs are best explored by hiking the hugely popular Howth Coastal Walk. The route offers expansive views over the shoreline, looking down on sights like Lambay Island and the bird sanctuary of Ireland’s Eye but it’s the summit that offers the most famous views – stretching across Dublin Bay and offering an unbeatable view of the city skyline.
