Howth Loop Walk

June 21st, 2018
Howth Loop Walk

Howth Loop Walk is the fifth and final of our Dublin walk blogs!

Although this is in a suburb outside of Dublin, this walk is becoming more and more popular with tourists because of it’s stunning views.

Heading north outside of Dublin on the DART train, a 30-minute train ride will bring you to Howth, a seaside village with a overflowing harbor and delicious seafood. Surrounding Howth are the Howth Cliffs, the setting of our last, yet certainly not least, walk on this list.

On a sunny day, you’re bound to see many people walking 1 of the 3 marked “loops” around Howth. But even so, you’ll still feel a sense of calmness and quietness despite the other walkers.

From the Howth DART station, turn left and continue towards the harbor. Walk along and pass the lighthouse before veering right to begin your ascent to the cliffs. You’ll even pass a little hidden beach and gorgeous houses on the coast before each of the 3 marked loops split off their separate ways. Each path is clearly marked with it’s own color, and there are signs frequently on the trail so you don’t get lost! But, I personally recommend doing the longest of the 3 walks, the Bog of Frogs Loop.

This particular walk goes along the cliffs to beyond Red Rock, passing the Baily Lighthouse, and then climbing to circle the Ben of Howth to return along the old tramline. The views of Lambay Island and Ireland’s Eye as well as Dublin Bay are spectacular. The cliffs are great for birds and you might also see grey seals near the harbor! When you return back to the village, have some food at The Doghouse right next to the DART station. Their wood-fired pizzas and cozy atmosphere won’t disappoint!
