Welcome to Howth Guided Tours.
Ciaran set up Howth Guided Tours with the sole aim to provide a unique and innovative service for the tourist and corporate business community. Hailing from a business background himself Ciaran has realised the pressures on businesses, the people that run them and the importance of having downtime on your weekly schedule. With this in mind we have come up with three tour packages that between them provide our clients with a great day out, lots of fresh air, exercise, visual sensations, fascinating historical information and most of all fun and laughter at very affordable prices.
Howth is easily accessible from Dublin city centre by a choice of public & private transport.We believe that Howth has all that any private individual, or business group need, in order to relax and unwind.
Our business tours run on Thursday and Friday evenings to take advantage of the long summer days and beautiful sunsets giving you some fantastic photographic opportunities. We also run group tours on weekends to cater for those who can’t escape from the office mid-week!

Our walk is always set at leisurely pace. We are out here to relax and fill our lungs with the freshest sea air. We will stop off at various locations along the way where your guide will explain some of the ancient local history and show you some of the natural features of the surrounding landscapes.
All routes are fully accessible and to all abilities.
We try to encourage group participation and team building where possible. One popular activity has been "Fionn's gold bullion" (where we use water pistols and ropes to create a fun filled atmosphere in search of Fionn’s gold).
All activities can be tailored to suit your group ensuring that everyone gets the most out of their day.
Food and Drinks
Howth is renowned for it’s fine fresh seafood and warm welcoming pubs. Our Mountain breeze and forrest fragrance tours finish up in the famous Dublin “boozer” The Summit. This very local pub has a great history of the “musical session”. It serves freshly prepared great food, however if wish for something more suited to a restaurant style environment we would be happy to reserve you a table at one of Howth’s many fine restaurants.
