Howth — Fish­ing Port and Walk

Howth Head- Dublin

Howth (rhymes with both), is a fish­ing and yacht­ing port, with a beau­ti­ful scenic walk is only 15km (9½ miles) north-​east of the city centre.

It is eas­ily reached by the city DART train (approx every ten min­utes from the city cen­tre sta­tions — Con­nolly, Pearse, or Tara Street). Howth Head gives fine views of Dublin Bay and the Wick­low Moun­tains or Boyne Val­ley beyond. In the bay is the rocky bird sanc­tu­ary and monas­tic island of Ireland’s, to which boat trips may be taken in sum­mer. Cliff paths lead around the coast­line, through Howth vil­lage and its ruined abbey, and past Baily Light­house. It is also a good des­ti­na­tion to cycle to from the City Cen­tre. And it is famous for its Fish and Chips as well as seals in the bay.
