    The views on this tour were AMAZING!!! And you cannot beat this tour guide! He is so engaging and tells the best stories. He even had a little video made at the end for us. If you love Cavaliers you will adore Missy, a true tour guide showing us around her home town. And don’t skip the pint at the end, we ordered lunch from there too (which was great!!)!

    This was an excellent way to get to view the Village of Howth. The tour guide is very personable and knowledgeable which made the experience that much better. This was a hike so if you have any mobility issues, take that into consideration. My parents, who are in their 70's, came with us. They made it through, but they endorse that it was physically challenging for them at times.

    The tour was great, well worth doing. Mark is a fabulous host, very entertaining. The tour goes at a leisurely pace so you do not need to be overly active to do it. The group I did it with were lovely and the lunch and pints at the end was very social. Nice to do a tour that is different to the usual touristy thing.
