Explore the seafront of Howth, Harbour and village. Enjoy the sights, sounds and aromas of a bustling fishing harbour. Sea air, stunning views and maritime heritage. Seals top the foodcahin of the coastal wildlife  and remarkable seabirds all make frequent appearances. This lively fishing town has a heavyweight history.  Get the feel for Druids and Celts. Fionn Mac Cumhail agus na Fianna, Diarmuid and Graine, Aideens Grave and Oscar.  An Island of Saints and Scholars guarding the harbour mouth. The Vikings and Normans. Howth Castle, Grace O'Malley Pirate Queen.  Martello Towers from the French Revolution.  Captain William Bligh and the "failure" of Howth Harbour, Winston Churchill's childhood hideout, WB Yeats, HG Wells and WillIam Orpen. The Howth Gun Running 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.
