"Howth" Howth Tip by Deefstes

Howth, Dublin: 27 reviews and 40 photos

  Dublin bay and the Bull Islan from Howth Head
by Deefstes

Howth (rhymes with "oath" not "mouth") is a suburb of Dublin on a peninsula north of the bay. It's a lovely fishing village where you can have a peaceful stroll along the harbour or buy some of the best and cheapest fish you will find in Dublin.

There are walks up Howth Head which offers splendid views over Dublin. In fact, the top of Howth Head gives a view stretching from Bray Head in the south all the way to the Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland - the longest stretch of coastline that can be seen from any point in Ireland.
