Howth, Co. Dublin

The small harbour town of Howth, in North County Dublin is 15kms (10 miles) from the city centre and is located on a hilly peninsula that dominates Dublin Bay. Howth is at the northern end of the DART train line.

The small town is built around a large fishing port which traditionally brought Dubliners out in their droves to get their fish on a Thursday evenings while observing their religious obligations of not eating meat on a Friday, this tradition still continues today for many.

The village has a great buzz to it these days with restaurants and pubs aplenty. There is a lengthy beach that stretches down to Sutton and there is also a spectacular cliff top walk that overlooks Dublin bay - this should not be missed on a fine day.

The area is also renowned for its golf being home to Ireland's largest public golfing complex in Deer Park, this is also home to a castle and a lovely hill walk amongst the famous Rhodendron gardens, the views from the top are breathtaking and you can even see the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland on a clear day.
