Howth Bottom to Top

Howth is one of my favourite parts of County Dublin. With everything else I do around Ireland I don't get the chance to spend as much time walking across or sitting on the top of Howth. Well, I certainly made up for it today! Four and a half hours of trekking around, meeting lovely people and enjoying not only the monuments, but the rhododendrons too. If you have chance to get to to see them in the next couple of weeks do so. They are amazing at the moment, but won't last long.

I managed to get onto the west peak at Howth after a hill-runner told me about the right of way across the golf course. After that I revisited the portal tomb, by climbing up and over Muck Rock and descending trough the above mentioned rhododendron gardens.
