Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Half-Day Dublin Coastal Experience. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
It was the perfect experience and exactly what we were looking for - get an idea of what's outside of Dublin. We were lucky with the weather, it was sunny, clear blue sky and we had fantastic views from the summit above Howth.
Malahide castle was also very interesting, for some reason that was thrown in as a surprise, we thought we'd "only" see the coast. So this tour was even better than we expected. And thanks to our experienced driver and guide Lawrence (of Arabia :-)), who told us the main stories and the small good to know hints and tips, it was all very pleasant, very informative and enjoyable. So thanks a lot to Lawrence and everybody else responsible for this trip. We will recommend you. Best from Germany
The description of this trip is misleading/out of date because what this tour actually does is take you to Malahide Castle. That's where the bulk of your time is spent before driving on to Howth. I had seen Malahide Castle before so had it been advertised that, that's what we were going to do, I probably would not have gone on this trip. But it had been some time since I had been to the castle and it had undergone major renovations, so I ended-up enjoying myself. Plus I got to see seals in Howth! Can't beat seals in the wild!
This tour was a disappointment due to hours were spent in an empty castle, but customers were rushed (30 minutes) at Howth ... the highlight of the tour! There was no "nice lunch in a fishing village"! There wasn't time to visit the shops, or the mall across the street or have an enjoyable meal. I can have take away at home. Traveling to another country to eat take away on a bus is not a vacation event!
