Being a student in a big city can sometimes become hard to keep up with. Maybe, you need to take a break, and what’s better than hikes with beautiful views and fresh air ?

Dublin is surrounded by amazing landscapes that deserve to be seen. At this point, you might get worried about things like renting a car, book a hotel, save money… But you don’t need any of that with the next 3 hikes that I found and tested for you.

1 – Howth

With twenty minutes by train with the Dart or fifty minutes by bus with the H3 from the centre of Dublin, you can discover a beautiful point of views. There are different tracks that you can access easily, and the village offers many places to eat or have a drink. But you can also have your own picnic and enjoying it near the sea.

2 – Dalkey

The second place i want to present you is the breathtaking village of Dalkey. It’s only 20 minutes away from Dublin for a 5€ Dart ticket train. The city center is worth to see too, it’s a very typical irish village. Let’s go visit the Killiney Hill Park ! The park offers you nice landscapes : you can as much as sea than magnificent forest. Being there in autumn is the cherry on the cake. Enjoy the fall colors and take a bowl of fresh air for the day !

3 – Glendalough

Last but not least, the delightful site of Glendalough. You can go any day of the week, there is one bus from Dublin city center to Glendalough who makes a round trip once a day. The ticket is a bit more expensive than the ones for Howth or Dalkey : you will have to pay 20 euros for 1 hour and a half by bus. But it’s definitely worth it, there is a large choice of hikes, adapted to every kind of profiles.
