John, our tour guide, was outstanding!!! He had tons of details, facts and stories to share with us. It was a great experience. I would take another tour with John anytime!
Great guided tour of the Howth cliffs! John was our guide and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend having a good meal prior to going and packing a snack also water for the hike as it takes a little while to get to the Summit where you have lunch not included in price at the Summit Pub. It's not a hard hike but a hike nevertheless, the hike down was more challenging as you are going through the forest, rocks, and downhill. Lots of time for taking pictures too. And you do get time to explore Howth after as your train ticket is good for that day.
Excellent guide and tour content. Description of tour does not do it justice! From the train journey, meeting fellow walkers from all over the world, to the walk itself with breathtaking scenery peppered with charming and funny anecdotes, it was a great day out! Left to wander Howth at end was an added bonus with the harbour and restaurants to explore. Much needed after a very frenetic Dublin!
Howth is a really small village, with a nice food market where to grab something to eat after the walk.
You will ascend the clifs and walk across the forest. Look out for some leprechauns!
Clara, our guide was really nice and helpful explaining not only historical facts but actuals.
If you enjoy an easy walk 10km o so this is your tour.
This was a great tour. John our guide was a walking History Book. So much information and a beautiful hike
Take this tour! It's a hike, so wear sneakers and prepare to walk a couple of miles. John my tour guide was so fun and knowledgeable about the history of the area. He kept a great pace and hung out with us during lunch too. Charge your camera and maybe bring a bottle of water.
Fantastic tour lead by John from New Dublin company
I was looking for a tour close to Dublin that involved lots of walking/hiking and the Howth Day trip is exactly what I wanted! 20 min. by train from Dublin and 3-4 hours of walking, surrounded by splendid views- what else can one want? But our guide, John Caffrey, made the tour even better! His easy going nature, encyclopedic knowledge of Irish history and culture made this day truly memorable. To make it even better, John chose a great local pub for lunch and had reserved a table for our group. Thank you, John and New Dublin company, for helping create a memory of a lifetime!
Our Howth Day trip from Dublin was EXCELLENT!!! There is quite a bit of walking involved, but it is well work it. The views are spectacular, and John our guide was extremely informative.
I think this tour highlights one the most scenic places I've ever visited in my life. W-O-R-T-H!
Our guide John was fabulous! Very knowledgable and answered any questions we had. Howth is a beautiful place! I highly recommend this trip but be prepared to hike all day. Can and #39;t wait to go back. Thanks John!
