Howth and Bray are two towns that are just a short train ride from Dublin city via the DART train. Howth is an amazing little fishing village with beautiful homes and a beautiful view. I don’t even really like fish, but I had FANTASTIC fish and chips there. Bray is beautiful as well, being just a short ride from Dublin city and a gorgeous hike from Greystones. During my last week in Ireland (while I was studying there), my friends and I had a picnic at the beach in Bray.
