Embark on a half-day excursion to Howth, a pretty seaside village on the Howth peninsula, a short way out of Dublin. This ticket includes a return journey to Howth, a guided walk on the cliffs of Howth, and free time to explore the village.
Discover the charming seaside village of Howth
Howth has been a prosperous fishing village for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. As a strategic headland, it was invaded by Vikings and was the location of many battles as different groups fought to possess it. Now it's a desirable upmarket seaside retreat where golfers and rock-stars rub shoulders with long-standing fishing families. Enjoy 75 minutes of free time to explore Howth and perhaps take the opportunity to sample some of Dublin's finest seafood!
This Coastal Tour includes return transfers between Dublin and Howth on a Big Bus Tours open-top double-decker bus.
Board the bus at Big Bus Tours Stop #1 (13 Upper O'Connell Street). Journey time is 60 minutes each way. Please present your booking confirmation to a Big Bus Tours staff member at least 15 minutes before the tour departs.
Guided Walking Tour
Explore Howth Cliffs on a 30-minute walking tour.
Walking Tours are led by your driver guide in English. Spot gannets, seals, puffins, curlews and of course, seagulls, on the wild headlands overlooking Dublin Bay.
