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.

Amazing walk! Great views and can stop at the pub for lunch at the top!

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).

Beautiful!

Easy to get to from Dublin. I took the DART from Connolly Station, about 30-35 minutes, and 6.15 Euro for a return. Not a bad deal. After enjoying the piers, walk to the end of the shops away from the station and follow the road uphill. You will eventually come to the start of the trail. You are in for spectacular views from the cliffs for about the next 2-3 miles. There is a treacherous path of old steps down to a secret beach close to the 5 mile point, but I'll say no more - It wouldn't be a secret then, would it? Just keep your eyes open for offshoot paths.

From the halfway point, the views are fewer as you move into the greenery, but lots of delicious wild blackberries to snack on as a consolation prize. When you turn inland, you should be keen to enjoy the woods, and crossing a road and a golf course. Past the golf course, the trail starts to get well worn again, and you're on the home stretch, through the neighborhoods of the village and down to the bus stop right across from the DART station.

Great hike, if a little boring at the end, but you could easily go the other way, and get the boring stuff over right away.

Slainte!
