Howth is a pretty suburb of Dublin, Ireland. Situated on the Howth Head peninsula, 15km from Dublin city centre, the village is charming, between its city centre, residential areas, marina and beautiful coastline. It must be said that the Howth Peninsula enjoys an exceptional wilderness environment! It is even hard to believe that Dublin is not far away!
Easily accessible with DART and Dublin Bus connections, the area is well worth a visit!
Howth has indeed the advantage of being a small fishing village which attracts every year many travellers who come to discover the wild beauty of its peninsula!
The village being rather touristy, you won’t have any trouble finding restaurants (often specializing in fish and seafood), traditional and festive irish pubs, or hotels and Bed & Breakfast to settle down for a few nights. The people are rather welcoming, and the streets of Howth are nice to walk through, if only to taste the charm of the Irish harbour villages.
Among the must-sees, don’t miss a little stroll on the harbour side (it’s not rare to meet seals there!), test its beach, Claremont Beach, push the door of these fish restaurants (freshness guaranteed!)…
Finally, don’t miss to explore the Howth Peninsula on foot: a path leads to its magnificent cliffs! The change of scenery is total, and you will be able to see its lighthouse, the Baily lighthouse!
