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.

Can motor homes still park overnight in howth harbour .

I notice that not many (if only a handful) visit Howth because they cannot use the toilets on East Pier even though they have a disabled toilet because there is no key to access it?

The disabled are not coming to Howth.

Can you please explain why?

Good afternoon!
I believe the German yacht Ruby Tuesday is arriving soon in Howth Marina.
WE met that boat last summer in Iceland.

Would you please be so kind as to tell them that the crew of the French sailing boat Brecqhou which was alongside them in Bolungarvik would be glad to get in contact with them?

They can contact us at or phone 00 33 6 81 06 18 38.

Thanks a lot

Best regards

Hello Harbour Masters and lovers of the seaside!

I am part of a Sustainability campaign in collaboration with other designers and scientists. Our website and campaign is 'Seastainability' and together we research, investigate, campaign and promote sustainability.

We regularly arrange beach cleans and individually do our best to tackle environmental and pollution issues, however serious intervention is needed to resolve the massive amount of plastic debris and broken fishing nets which is nesting into our harbours and beaches.

Much of this debris is stuck in the harbour corners or settled on boulder rock and it is not safe or accessible for members of the public to clear it. Professional clearing is needed regularly, we need more bins in these rubbish spots and regulations need to be put in place to stop broken nets being discarded into the sea.

The negative effects are damaging wildlife, our food supply and tourism!

I would love to hear from you how we can make some positive changes,

When I was employed by Rock Fall Co I was in charge for a period in deepening the Howth harbour by drilling and blasting probably in late 1960's or early 1970's. Could you please let me know the exact year of that operation?

I am writing my memoir and this information will be valuable. I shall appreciate your assistance in this regard.

Whilst entering Howth marina, in our Sadler 26, 4' 10" draught, at low tide in June this year (2011) we ran aground when only just off the main pontoons. When I say ran aground, I mean hit a submerged rock and then had to be towed off by the club launch. The following day another vessel was left high and dry for the duration of the tide in roughly the same spot.

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 – 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.

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.
