Nice change if you have half a day to spare in Dublin. You are only let out at the cliffs (for a photo) for 25 minutes and then drive to the fishing village (for about 75 minutes). 45 minutes drive there and 40 minutes drive back. A total of only 3.5 hours instead of the announced 4 hours. Nice guide who tells a lot of interesting things. However, you must be able to speak English well in order to understand most of it. He talks very fast. The fishing village is a pure tourism magnet with 20 restaurants, a (modern) fishing port and few highlights. Overall okay and recommended.

Thanks to Gore and Ross, this tour was an amazing experience. It was a great opportunity to see picturesque places near Dublin that give the impression of living in a classic novel. Apart from that, plenty of interesting information about Dublin, Ireland, thr culture and history were explained. Our tour guides were excellent, polite and very communicative.

We travelled with the Big Bus. We had a wonderful driver/guide. He was in a great mood and happy to share his knowledge on the fishing village of Howth. My daughter , a professional photographer, had plenty of time to shoot some great photos. We also had a wonderful fresh seafood lunch at The Brass Monkey on the pier.
