Dublin's most inspiring hike. Starting from the Tourism kiosk at the Harbour. Gnarly beautiful and adventurous, by the sea. Explore Howth off-road with passionate and expert local guides, nobody knows it better. 10 kms to 15 kms in 3 to 4 hours, if you don't waylay me. Through woodlands and the exquisite Rhododendron Gardens, echoing the jungles of Siam. Feel the ancient romance of Aideen's Grave, druidic stones as old as the pyramids. Climb to HG Wells most beautiful view in the world. Clear your mind and ignite your creativity with salty air, and tropical aromas. Bliss your eyes with vivid yellow gorse and purple heathlands down to the sea and the cliffs. Summer breeze, the forest and the gentle tunes of the trees. Wilder storms and sea birds, crashing waves and lashing seas. At low tide we explore below the waterline and into the caves, but watchout and don't be caught out. Panoramic views from the clifftops. Exercise your body and soul. Myths and intimate tales, legends and history of 4000 years.
The real high comes from the group, roving through enchanting territory, air and light from one inspiring place to the next. I kid you not!
I recommend cross trainers, boots or stout shoes. Keep an eye on the weather and think about a light waterproof. Water and a snack wouldn't hurt either.
Holiday Hack ! Get the 31 or 31/a bus from Talbot street in the city centre, sit up stairs, up front or on the right hand side and treat yourself to a coastal tour and intimate review of Dublin as you make your way out to join us in Howth
