A proper trip to Dublin isn’t complete without a trip to its waterfront suburb, Howth. Located on the Howth Head peninsula, this cool little village features a busy harbor, beautiful hiking paths, and fresh local food. Notable sights include the Howth Castle, Howth Lighthouse, and Ireland’s Eye. To get the full effect, however, a hike to the summit of Howth is a must. In any case, Howth is a charming little village, providing the beauty of nature at a grand scale as well as man-made wonders such as ice cream shops and fish & chip joints. Central Dublin is lively and great, but Howth is awesome in a very different way. So do yourself a favor and catch a train to one of the coolest part’s of Dublin that otherwise might not be getting the attention it deserves.
