Shane's Howth Adventures
Explore Howth off-road walking, hiking or by electric bike with our passionate, expert local guides. Howth Peninsula is located in the Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere, the only such Biosphere in the world nested in a capital city. Wildlife abounds; seals, porpoises, dolphins, red squirrels, gannets and a myriad of other seabirds, maybe even the occasional whale. We take the secret trails of Howth, surrounded by vibrant heather and gorse. Let the magic of the woodland, jungle, and heathland enrapture you. Explore the world famous cliff paths to the iconic Baily Lighthouse. Along the way spot the sea stacks and caves. Walk through the ages in Howth: visit an ancient dolmen, 4500 years old, called Aideen's Grave, a portal to the magical Otherworld; Howth Castle, the seat of Lord Howth for 800 years; the Martello Towers, relics of British occupation and revolutionary uprisings; ruins of early Christian churches and the Golden Age; the East Pier of the 1914 Howth Gun Running. We can bring history to life like no other. Howth is also a place of great significance in the rich mythology and legends of Ireland, as Binn Éadair. Only 30 minutes by train from Dublin City, this is the most beautiful, varied, awe-inspiring hike close to Dublin. We know every trail here and everybody. We will get you around safely and smiling.
