Howth is a pretty fishing and yachting port, about 15 km north-east of Dublin city centre. The little town lies on the north side of Howth Head, with steep winding streets going uphill from the harbour.

It is a popular daytrip from Dublin as it is a nice place to walk around in. You can walk around in the town and harbour and you can choose to make longer walks on paths around Howth Head.

Howth is a fishing centre so you will find fresh local catches on the menus in the restaurants and cafes.

    Another nice little town near Dublin. You certainly had some windy and stormy weather when you were there. Good that you didn?t get blown away. But you did get some nice rainbow photos after the storm.

    Lovely to see Howth Castle and the ruins of St. Mary's Church. Great views of the sea from the town.

    Great page. I like your warning about heeding the caution of falling over the cliffs :)

    An interesting page just for St Patrick day (congrats!) Great view from summit. Howth Castle and St Mary's Church look very attractive on your pics. Thanks Malena for sharing! PS: and the Roman Catholic Church (hot tip!)

    You always manage such amazing photos - no matter what the weather is doing!! I'm a coastal guy, so I would love being by the seashore on a day like that. We have a Martello Tower too, in Saint John (to repel the Yanks!)
