Explore the charming seafront and historic village of Howth, a fishing village in the heart of the Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere. Only 30 minutes from Dublin City by train, this is the perfect seaside escape. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas of a bustling fishing harbour. Fresh salty air, stunning views, and a rich maritime heritage. Seals, porpoises, and many remarkable seabirds all make frequent appearances along the way.
This lively fishing town has a deep history. Get a feel for the Druids and Celts, for whom Howth was an important place. Their presence lives on here. Fionn Mac Cumhall agus na Fíanna, the finest warriors in Erin were here. Romance was alive with Diarmuid and Gráinne, and Oscar and Aideen. An Island of Saints and Scholars guards the harbour mouth, once home to the enlightened monks of the Golden Age. The Vikings and Normans also came; some still remain. Howth Castle and Grace O'Malley the famous Pirate Queen. Martello Towers from after the French Revolution and Irish Rebellion of 1798. Captain William Bligh and the "failure" of Howth Harbour, Winston Churchill's childhood hideout, W.B. Yeats, H.G. Wells, and WillIam Orpen. Visit the landing place of The Howth Gun Running, central to the 1916 Rising.
Ahh but its not all history, we know how to Rock and Roll. Phil Lynnott and Thin Lizzy made themselves at home and U2 cut their teeth at many local venues, they have stuck around too. Not to overlook the Trad scene and the legacy of Clann Eadair with regular sessions in the local pubs. Let us show you around, then pick your spot for supper and a lively evening.
Dublin's finest day out, with snug and cosy bolt-holes all along the way.
A lively, loving, and hospitable town.
