On the day 2 of my quick stint at Dublin (Ireland), Shiva and I had 3-hour free time.  We decided to explore, Cliff Walk in Howth, which is about 25-min train ride away.  This place was recommended by the cabbie and also by the hotel concierge.
We walked about 15 minutes to nearest “O Connely” train stop, and took the 6-Euro round trip ticket.  There were about 6 to 7 stops, before we reached destination.  We noticed rural outlook of Irish suburbs, within 5 minutes of train ride from the Dublin City Center.
We spent about 2 hours in Howth, doing the cliff walk of about 10K steps (per our fitbit), and got serenaded by beautiful views, some of which can be seen in the below pictures.  I ended up walking another 10K steps at Dublin and London transit to Hyderabad (with total of 20K steps for the day)
Here are few images and video clip from our cliff walk.  Full story in the weekend.
