  Ireland's Eye from Howth Pier
by Groentje

After a ten minutes' walk from the DART station (at the entrance go to the left) you arrive at the Howth Pier. A walk along this very windy stretch of pier to the light tower is really nice! You can also take the (less wind torn) walk below the pier, but I liked the wind better.
It's ideal to reminisce with a friend about good times encountered, or when you're alone to think about things to come.
The views on Dublin Bay are a welcome extra; also check out the planes just whistling by. It's an ideal spot for plane spotting, as my friend said :-)
You can also take a small boat trip to Ireland's Eye (Eye is for Island here), a small island in front of the Harbour, with splendid rock formations. You can take a peek at it on the enclosed picture.

Address: In the harbour
Directions: At the DART station entrance go to the left, then just go along the harbour. There's a city map at the beginning of the harbour.
Phone: Talk to the locals!
