Gorgeous day for a walk. Lots of flowering bushes and birdsongs. Very well marked trail and moderate traffic on it. Took the red trail which went the coast line and then to the interior. Some roads and residential but most in nature.

Great track. Diverges from the official (signalised) trail in a few parts towards the end but I'd recommend the route suggested here over the official one if you don't mind a little bit of climbing.

Gorgeous hike. Did it in January, so foot traffic was moderately light. I would guess this trail gets quite busy spring through summer. The north east half of the route sees far more people. South west side provided much greater solitude. Due to its proximity to Dublin, I can see why many tourists make this part of their “Ireland Experience”. Easy to take the Dart from the Connolly station for about €6 p/p round trip. Highly recommend this hike in winter. When its wet, there will be LOTS of slick mud. If thats an issue, avoid rainy weather. This hike was moderately strenuous with lots of slip potential in wet conditions. Wear good shoes.

Excellent hike. Not too strenuous.

amazing trail but if you are an outdoor enthousiast prepare to, stop and queue a lot and be constantly surrendered by tourists. I would recommand doing it in low season and on week days.

Unquestionably my favourite trail in Dublin. Rain or shine, summer or winter. However, best in summer when Deer park forest is in full blossom. Also a great trail to pick magic mushrooms in October. Not a hard trail, no need to dress like an astronaut! Wonderful cliff jumps into the sea near the Bailey lighthouse and great cliff fishing spots as you get close to Howth village. Suitable to run, not cycle.

Probably the most organized and well thought trail system I’ve ever been on! Their is a manned information booth which provide maps of selected hikes. The trail is well marked. And you finish directly across the street from the DART train station. Plenty of excellent seafood restaurants there. Doesn’t get any better than this!

Beautiful views and well manicured trail. Perfect for family outing. Amble parking after searching for it.

Fantastic trail with great views. Local map shows several trails in the area with shorter routes. This is listed on local map as 10km called Bog of Frogs trail. Follow purple arrows.

Beautiful views and easy navigation + chances to wander off trail. Would definitely do it again (and maybe I’d bring a beach towel).
