What to expect

Immerse yourself in nature as you hike along the Howth Peninsula which is known as a treasure of the Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere, and prepare to soak up the great outdoors. Discover Howth off-road with passionate and expert local guides, nobody knows this area better, and relive history as you walk through the ages and explore unique habitats that vary by day and season.

Here are the seasonal highlights that you might come across:

Spring (March, April, May):

Delight your senses in Irish Springtime with the smell of coconut on the breeze from the gorse, the fragrance of wild garlic underfoot in the woodland, and psychedelic rhododendron gardens. These exquisite rhododendrons echo the jungles of Siam. Notice the stretch in the evenings and warming of the year.

Summer (June, July, August):

Howth's vibrant heathland blooms all summer over the headland. Birds abound all along the cliffs at this time of year too: kittiwakes, gulls, cormorants, guillemots, gannets, and more. Spot the porpoises, dolphins, and seals in the bay.

Autumn/Fall (September, October, November):

This is the waning of the year, when incandescent Autumnal leaves cloak the woods. A magical time to be in Howth. Foliage is let go and descends to the forest floor with a gentle song.

Winter (December, January, Feburary):

Brace the cold and awaken your senses to wild raw nature. Witness the sublime raging seas on stormy winter days. Howth's Winter woodland is stark and magnificent.
