A Howth to Dun Laoghaire cruise is not only a transportation link between two charming coastal locations but also an opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty and maritime heritage of Dublin’s coastline. It’s a journey that combines the tranquillity of the sea with the exploration of vibrant harbours and historic towns. 

As the cruise progresses, passengers are treated to breathtaking views of Dublin Bay, including landmarks such as Irelands Eye Island, Howth Cliffs, and the Baily Lighthouse. Depending on the season, particularly in the spring and early summer, you might be fortunate enough to spot puffins. These charming seabirds are known for their distinctive appearance and colourful beaks. Occasionally, dolphins can make an appearance, playing in the boat’s wake. These marine mammals can add an exciting and dynamic element to the cruise.
