The Howth Loop is a simple but stunning trail around the Howth peninsula. The trail takes about 3-4 hours to complete. Starting out in the town (where there is plenty of parking but It can fill up on nice days!!) you will head along a road up towards the cliffs. You will wrap around the cliffs, where It can be very busy, and then follow the trail towards the lighthouse. Upon reaching the lighthouse you will have spectacular views of the city, this will be your photo op!
The trail then heads towards the summit pub before heading up towards the Ben of Howth. Though the trail doesn't go all the way to the top, it is recommended though, as the views are amazing, both West towards the city and North up the coast. From there you will follow the trail back down to the town and marina.
