Wally our guide was GREAT!!! He was very knowledgeable, funny and just fun to be around. However, this was much more than walking. There was hiking through very muddy steep paths in the woods. Had we know this we would have all brought the appropriate foot wear. My shoes ended

The hike is worth the view, going through the beautiful trees and making your way up the somewhat steep hill is nothing once you get to the top and see all of Howth. I’m happy I booked this trip.
