A picturesque fishing village nestled on the rugged peninsula that forms the north side of Dublin Bay, Howth is one of Ireland’s many hidden treasures. That is not to say that the village doesn’t receive its fair share of visitors. Far from it. Howth is a favourite holiday destination and benefits especially from its popularity amongst yachtsmen and pleasure boaters. Indeed Howth Yacht club dates back to 1895 and with around 2000 members it is by far the largest in the country and enjoys a busy programme of racing, regattas and voyaging. The marina and club complex combine state of the art with old and traditional with standards of services superb across the board. As you would expect from such a large club, berths are plentiful and marine services top notch.
Away from the harbour itself there is much to recommend Howth. Historians will love the ruined abbey, nearby Baily Lighthouse and 15th Century castle. You can take a bracing stroll along the piers, sightsee aboard an open top tram, watch seals and dolphins in the waters along the shore and take in breathtaking views from cliff top walks. Of course Howth’s working fishing port means that fish and seafood lovers are absolutely spoilt when it comes to dining out and the pub scene is second only to Dublin itself, if a little more relaxing.
Howth is a lovely place from which to discover Ireland. You can blow away the cobwebs and kick back and explore the magnificent coastline at your leisure knowing you will be returning after each trip to one of the friendliest places on earth. And that’s the truth.
The Harbourguides Crew would like to say a special thanks to Aidan and Joan Macmanus from the excellent King Sitric for providing us with photos of beautiful Howth.

Established in 1971, Aidan and Joan MacManus have earned an international reputation for fresh seafood in their harbour-side restaurant in the picturesque fishing village of Howth. However, we are still only 20 minutes from the bustle of Dublin City and Dublin Airport. In 1999, we extensively rebuilt our old Harbour Master's house, relocating the restaurant to the first floor with panoramic sea-views, and adding eight guest bedrooms. All the bedrooms, named after Lighthouses, are stunningly located overlooking Balscadden Bay.
We are named after King Sitric II, Norse King of Dublin in the 11th Century who had a close association with Howth and was son in law of the famous Irish King, Brian Boru.

Ireland's leading supplier of wild Irish smoked salmon, fresh fish and corporate gifts Wrights of Howth have been in the fish business since 1890. We are still a family run business and our products are processed in the traditional way using only natural ingredients and absolutely no additives. Unfortunately in these days of technology it is not possible to get to know all our customers personally but whether you are purchasing one Wild Irish Smoked Salmon or one thousand I can assure you of our personal attention at all times.
A deft flick of the wrist could launch a fish from Dublin Bay into a waiting pan in Aidan MacManus' kitchen. As it is, the ocean's finest tends to travel the 400 yards from Howth Pier in a rather more sedate fashion since only the pick of the morning's catch passes muster in this renowned fish restaurant. We have nurtured a network of trusty suppliers who can rustle up everything from locally caught lobster and crab to organically grown vegetables. Most of our fish is landed here in Howth and is sourced for us by Oceanpath, Nicky's Plaice and Beshoffs to our specifications. Incidentally, our Smoked Salmon comes from the last traditional smoking kiln in Howth, in Nicky's Plaice, and smoked to order for us by Nicky & Martin McLoughlin. (Well worth a visit â€“ all are welcome). Lobster and crab come from Balscadden Bay, only a stone's throw from our front door, where our friend John Sheridan fishes exclusively for us. Other shellfish, such as Oysters, Mussels, Clams etc come from approved beds in various locations, according to season. Where we can, we source our vegetables from local organic growers. Similarly, our cheese-board features only Irish Farmhouse cheeses. Wild Game in Winter is also a favourite.
