This is my first post from Dublin! I can't wait to share all we did in the coming weeks and create a full guide to the city for you all. We had the best long weekend for Andrew's 30th. Dublin was awesome but we had an extra day to explore the area and we received so many recommendations to visit Howth!
Howth is a little seaside town about 40 minutes via train outside Dublin. Dublin actually has this amazing public train that's about five euro and it took us right out to the area. The train was awesome, super clean and really easy and convenient to use.
We really just walked around the little shops, out to the water and around town while we were there. If the weather was a little nicer -- or if we had more time -- we would have walked more out along the cliffs by the shore, but it was a little more than we were looking for during our trip.
One of the best things about this little town was the food. I've had a lot of oysters in my life but none as amazing as those that I had in Howth. The seafood was SO fresh it was awesome. If you ever have a chance to visit Dublin, try and plan for a day outside of the city. It was so much fun!
