Just a short DART trip up the coast from Dublin gets you to Howth. Kat, Alanna (our friend visiting from home) and I took a trip there on Wednesday since it was such a beautiful day. We followed a narrow road that brought us to a dirt path that had rolling hills of plants and flowers on one side, and the ocean on the other. There are paths of various lengths that you can take depending on how long and how intense of a walk you want, but we chose to do a short loop around the area. From there we returned to the dock area where we got some delicious fish and chips at Beshoff's and then spent several hours sitting in the grass, soaking up the sun, and watching all those around us do the same.
