The trip was cancelled but I could participate free on another one to Glendalough and it was really amazing, our tour guide was really nice and told us lots of information and stories! I can just recommend!Reviewed by: Reka N, October 2011
This castle was awesome and the trip wasn't too long. Disappointed I couldn't feed the seals even though the description said we would be able to.Reviewed by: Lauren C, December 2011
One of the selling points of this trip to my peers and I were being able to feed the seals - however, once boarding the bus, we were told that the tour has not been able to do that for YEARS. Fortunately, we were still able to see a couple of seals in the harbor. Howth was absolutely beautiful. Definitely try to seafood chowder from the little cart along the harbor! And the castle itself was really quaint and neat. Despite the slight disappointment with the seals, everything turned out to be fantastic. Definitely recommend!Reviewed by: Victoria S, December 2011
The weather was horrible - raining and very cold but our driver and tour guide, Joe was a gem. In his Extreme Ireland bus he looked after us and provided us with an informative and pleasant experience. His knowledge of the history of Irish politics and internal conflicts was impressive and I came away with a much better understanding of why the island is politically divided. It was great being able to walk through Belfast and Joe also took us to see some of the graffiti evidence of past difficulties. Thank you Joe.Reviewed by: Tracey M, November 2011
This trip was a big disappointment. The bus driver barely said a word on the way to the castle; then, we when we arrived at the castle, we were given a narrated tour by a recording and saw only 5 rooms of the castle. Not a fun trip and not recommended.Reviewed by: Anne B, October 2011
