Wat je gaat doen
See Howth through the eyes of a local. This experience will let you live, feel & breathe the real Ireland as thou you were a native. We start our journey through time, hearing tales of Viking and Norman invasions and learning about the history of the 700-year-old castle. Immerse yourself in Irish culture as we walk through the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey (Built in 1042) and visit sites known only to locals (Hidden Howth). There will be plenty of time for photographs, as you stroll through this picturesque fishing village and meet the local colony of seals and the huge variety of seabirds. Whether you have a passion for Irish history, or prefer listening to the myths and legends you have come to associate with ancient Ireland, there is something for everyone. Or, If you fancy more of a challenge, check out my other experience 'Coastal Walk with a Local & his Dog' - which covers all of this experience followed by a scenic walk around the beautiful Cliffs of Howth and finishes in a local Irish pub for a complimentary pint of beer and of course - more stories!!
I am a resident of Howth, an Irish music aficionado, and Howth’s unofficial ambassador for your walk through history. I have a huge passion for Irish history and the myths and legends Ireland has amassed over the centuries. Living in Howth is a real pleasure, and I want to be able to share the deep history, inspiring views and all the hidden places that only locals know about, with visitors from all over the world.

Waar je zult zijn
We will see the best views of Ireland's Eye Island, Howth Harbour Lighthouse, and Kings Footprints along the West Pier—followed by a walk through the higher parts of the village to see the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey and the Martello tower, which was the site of the first Howth Castle in the 12th Century. Then we'll visit one of the most picturesque beaches before walking the East Pier to see the spot of Howth Gun Running.
