The entire experience was fantastic! Mark and Missy were super guides, we learned lots of interesting facts about Howth and it’s history, the cliff part of the hike was very beautiful, the pint at the pub delicious, and the video we were given of the entire experience was a very special remembrance. We were also lucky enough to have the benefit of having Mark’s friend Carlos go along with our group, and who played music for us at the pub. A very special day.

Mark brought the history of Howth to life and took us to some beautiful viewpoints to overlook Cliffsides and sea. Missy showed us where the seals can be found in the bay. Missy and Mark both had very outgoing and warm personalities. The hike was beautiful and Mark answered all of our questions about Howth. Great guide.

Perfect local hike for your stay in Dublin

I'd highly recommend Hike & Pints to anyone looking for a beautiful late morning hike just a short train ride from Central Dublin. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone with more stories to share about Howth than Mark, and a better timekeeper than Missy. Together they'll introduce you to some Class A scenery, a breath of fresh air, and a well-deserved post-hike pint with great company before you head back to town.

My family of 3 loved this tour! Mark and Missy were great tour guides and we learned a lot of the history of Howth and had a beautiful hike on the cliffs. Mark communicated with us prior to the tour about changing our day and it worked out great. The video at the end that he puts together is a great way to document the tour. My 12 year old said it was his favorite thing we did!

Solo traveler—and will be back again!

Was traveling for business and took a 48 hour detour to Dublin—I decided to do this tour (solo) after reading the reviews, and I am SO GLAD that I did! Mark was a fantastic tour guide, providing the perfect blend of humor and history for our scenic walk. He fostered such a welcoming environment, so although I did this experience solo I had such a fantastic time and loved getting to know the others in the group. If I come back with family/friends again in the future I would 1000% do it again just to show others the experience. It was my favorite part of my time in Dublin!!

Great journey around Howth

Mark and Missy were an amazing duo on our walk around Howth. Providing both entertainment and insights into the history of the area. Missy herself was very eager to introduce us to her friends, and ensured the trip ran on time. She is definitely the star of the show! 😁 The walk up the cliffs is not too difficult, although obviously going uphill. It is certainly worth it though for the views.

This tour pleasantly surprised me. The views were simply fabulous. Mark provided wonderful commentary as well as more than enough stops and rest moments so it really didn’t feel like a long uphill hike.

This is a great way to spend an afternoon. Easy to get to from Dublin and the cliffs are simply breathtaking. Mark has a ton of great stories to tell along the way and Missy keeps everyone on task and on the correct path. Visiting the Bloody Stream Pub at the end is the perfect cherry on top. Highly recommend this tour!

If you're in Dublin for any amount of time, this day trip is a must! Mark and Missy were the best tour guides you could ask for, and the day was beautiful and fun. We learned about Irish history, saw spectacular views of the rocky coast, and shared stories and made friends along the way. Plus, we ended the day with a pint that was the perfect cap to an amazing day.

Hi Rachel, Thanks for the amazing review and for booking the experience, it was great meeting you and showing you around my hometown, We have got many great historic and scenic areas on the peninsula and of course, Missy and the Pint are also firm highlights to the day.

This was easily one of my favourite activities I've done in Ireland. The name of the tour sold me, hikes and pints! Knowing there would be an adorable dog was icing on the cake. Best of all Mark delivers a great experience. Stories of the area, beautiful scenic hike, group photographs, photo stops along the way and best of all, a bit of the craic among the way. Ending the hike with a delicious pint caps off a lovely morning. Mark is also fantastic at communicating with guests before the tour. He also provides a cool video of the hike to all guests, which I really enjoy. I went as a solo but had a great time with the small group. Howth train station is really easy to get to on the DART from Dublin or surrounding areas. I highly recommend this tour

Hi Paula, Thanks for the amazing review and for the detail you put into it - You have perfectly summed up the experience. I am so glad that you liked the video of the experience, it is proving to be a big highlight for guests, along with Missy of Course.
