I love hiking in Ireland. We are required to do 12 hikes for our "hill climbing" class, and I have only done 5 so far. I know, I'm a little behind. But that doesn't change the fact that I very much look forward to the hikes, especially when the weather is warm, the hill is high in the sky, and the trail is along the sea.
My most recent hike, which was located in Howth (about an hour and a half Dart ride away from Greystones), was by far the best of all. It had to have been about 65 degrees, because I was sweating and I was in a tank-top. For all of my other hikes, I have been bundled up and avoiding the wind and rain from attacking my face.
Basically, it was a lovely day to be outside in Ireland. We finished off the two hour hike with our elementary brown sack lunches and a walk through the prawn festival.
