Ireland's Eye Ferries is a family run business, now in its 4th generation, offering boat trips from the fishing village of Howth in North Dublin. There are two main trips. The first is a scenic trip around Ireland's Eye lasting approx 40 minutes during which you see the Martello Tower, the cliffs and stack, sea birds (Ganets, Puffins, Guiellmots, Kittiwakes) and seals. On the second trip you can land on the island and stay for a while and explore, climb to the summit for spectacular views, stroll along or relax on the beaches, find the ruins of a 5th century monastry and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the mainland. It only takes 15 minutes to get to the island and you can stay an hour or two.
