On the north-side of Dublin Bay lies the mythic Howth peninsula. An exclusive neighbourhood, the island is home to a yachting harbour, artisan restaurants and a quality farmer's market. Howth's natural beauty make it a true gem for a wanderer looking to escape the city. The dramatic cliffs and hill walks welcome explorers - for an interesting hike, make sure to follow the "Bog of Frogs" loop!. Howth Summit Viewpoint and a stroll on Claremont Beach offer breathtaking views, while Howth Castle, St Mary's Abbey and "Ye Olde Hurdy Gurdy Radio Museum" provide a sense of the peninsula's heritage. As well as this, visitors can take the ferry to Ireland's Eye Bird Sanctuary in summer.
