Howth Pier’s original fishmonger is now a stylish fish shop, with deli and oyster bar attached

Beshoffs of Howth

The first in a line of restaurants and fish shops on Howth’s West Pier, Beshoffs was founded in 1914 by Ivan Beshoff, a survivor of the Russian Imperial Navy battleship Potemkin mutiny; various Beshoff's enterprises are still run by his descendants and the name is synonymous with seafood in Ireland.


Boasting an authentic oyster and tapas bar, this is certainly the swishest fish shop in Dublin and arguably the most striking and stylish of the competition on the pier.


Here, Alan Beshoff offers a wide range of whitefish and shellfish with live crab, lobster and crayfish available from tanks in-store; there is also a deli, oyster bar and restaurant.


By day diners perched on bar stools can dine on native and rock oysters and choice shellfish dishes, surrounded by a tempting selection of organic produce and glistening fresh fish.



The oyster bar /Tapas @ The Market serves excellent coffee and pastries too, making it a popular spot for pier-walkers. 

Market open Mon-Sun 8.45-6. Tapas Mon-Sun 11.30-5. Closed Christmas, New Year, Good Fri. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. T abbreviations
