What You Can Expect

Howth Day Trip from Dublin

Explore the ancient fishing village of Howth

Greet your expert guide in central Dublin and climb aboard a modern train for the short and scenic journey to Howth, a spectacular landscape replete with dramatic cliffs and undulating green hills. Allow your guide to share intimate knowledge of the region’s rich historical heritage, and then head towards Howth Castle, an ancient structure that gazes solemnly out to sea (please note an entrance to the castle is not included).

Gaze at sweeping vistas of the crashing Atlantic Ocean from Howth Castle’s hilltop perch and look out for the skyline of Dublin, which is visible on particularly clear days. Delve into the castle’s intriguing history before visiting Viking ruins, a Neolithic stone monument and W. B. Yeats’ boyhood home. 

Appease your appetite with a traditional Irish lunch at Summit restaurant; feast upon freshly caught seafood and local specialties for a discounted price, and then return to the train station for the relaxing ride back to Dublin. Opt to stay in Howth for longer if you wish without your guide.
