Superb activity. We had a blast on this hike across the Howth Peninsula. The bikes were very capable in perfect condition and the ride was effortless. The landscapes are magnificent. Our guide Aileen was great: supervised us well, watched over everyone, explained how the bikes worked, the ride, took photos for everyone, commented on each site. An excellent moment from all points of view!! Do not hesitate to ask Aileen for an address where you can eat after the walk (fish restaurant) on the port. Recommended activity +++
