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.
This is Ireland’s Eye, an uninhabited island, it has a tower on it that was built to resist a potential invasion by Napoleon
Humans for scale
Seathrift, now that I know this plant, I see it on postcards all the time

Thanks for coming on my hike!
