Take a hike! (with me?): Howth, Bog of Frogs

There are a few hikes you can do around Howth, a peninsula north of Dublin, but I did the longest loop, the 14 km Bog of Frogs (not sure why it’s called that). It was super crowded for the first few km, but then it thinned out until there was no one. Sigh, tourists. I recommend it if you’re in the area, and have a high tolerance for other humans. It has a lot of really gorgeous views of Ireland’s east coast.
