One of the great things about Howth Head is that it offers a variety of trails varying in length from one hour to three, each of its own distinct character and all offering stunning views over Dublin Bay and the Irish Sea.In fact on parts of the trail it is hard to believe that you are just a few kilometres from the city. The other positive things are that there is a large car park, the trails are all well maintained, and there is even a fancy modern toilet in the Summit Car Park (along with a handy van selling coffee most days!) We were lucky to do our walk on an absolutely glorious November day when there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.It was fairly early so the sun was still pretty low, which added to the beauty of the walk. We chose to do a relatively easy loop, taking the upper trail from the car park and then dropping down to the narrower cliff trail before making our back up the gentle ascent (and about 30 steps) to return to the car park. A very satisfying outing.
