Howth fishing village – Binn Éadair in Irish, coming from the word headland. It’s a small fishing village and a great spot for a day cliff walk.

Howth fishing village cliff walk

Do you want to discover breathtaking views and charming places while visitng Dublin? You should definitely try going to fishing village Howth! Need to walk the full loop to see small rocky beaches and incredible wildlife – dolphins and seals. It is hard to believe wild nature is so close to the city! It is one of the best hiking trails in Ireland, located in Dublin city. You can’t miss one and only Howth port. This used to be a small fishing village while nowadays it’s a main toursit attraction for it’s unforgettable atmosphere and look. 

Howth peninusla is a great destination for a beautiful day walk the cliff path leading around the coastline. The violet path is around 10 km but you can call in to see the town. The view from Howth cliffes spreads across Dublin Bay and Wicklow Mountains and it is absolutely beautiful. A start point is a fishing and yachting port, where you have a choice of plenty seafood restaurants. The queue for the most popular fish & chips takeaways can be enormous during weekends. But the fish burger or deep fried cod is really worth trying. Although I heard even it is a fishing village all fish they have in all these take aways is frozen. It is extraodinary! The beautiful scenery of the village and the coastal paths attracts lots of tourists whole year around. But this is just more than a fishing village. It is so cosy and unique, there is usually lots of seals swimming around and bobbing up with their cute noses. Last time while walking around the cliffs I even got to see dolphins.
