B&B's can be a real gamble. In this case you are provided with a warm welcome, a clean room with daily service, a comfortable bed, a hearty breakfast with lots of Irish chatter, Wifi that worked for us, access to the room throughout the day, and the Abbey Tavern as your local. Considering there are no hotels in Howth, only... More

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. I was offered tea as soon as I arrived, and they did everything they could to make sure I had a pleasant stay. The room was comfortable, and the restroom was very large and roomy. Everything was very clean. I wasn't able to stay for breakfast, but I very much enjoyed my stay.

Usually stay at a hotel when coming to visit family in Howth, but because of price and proximity we decided to try a B&B. This was perfect for a good nice sleep and irish breakfast. My kids loved Henry the seagull coming to visit during breakfast and during morning cartoons! Rooms are a little small, and carpets are tired, but... More

You really get what you pay for with this B&B. Positives are It is in a great location, provided a really excellent cooked breakfast and had adequate facilities. Negatives; - Very poor mattress - No window in room other than a sky light with no blind - Paper thin walls and creaky floors which meant I was woken every time... More

Host Sean is very welcoming. He offered us tea and biscuits on our arrival and made us popcorns when we watched films in the guest playroom. We were also provided with a full Irish breakfast, with bacon, eggs, toast, sausage and black pudding. The triple room is clean and organized, with a moderate size bathroom which has everything. The house... More

I stayed here for 10 days. Met various of Sean's family members who were very kind and helpful. Had a lovely breakfast each morning which I'm missing terribly back home. Will stay here again if I have the opportunity to ever visit Howth again. After 10 days I finally figured out how to pronounce Howth! - Hoath! :-)

Stayed here for 2 nights, the actual BB needs attention to bring it up to date and also the first breakfast was served with a hair. The guy has longish hair which should not be lose while making people's breakfast,either cut it or tie it back... we will not loom to stay here again

We stayed here for 2 nights, needs a little love & attention but as somewhere to lay your head I couldn't really complain. Sean is friendly & welcoming and nothing is a problem. However after phoning to confirm before leaving home, when we got there he had mixed up the nights for the booking, luckily he had one room, although... More

Without a doubt Sean is very welcoming and nice person but the room I was given not so much. The en-suite was absolutely tiny and the water in the shower wouldn't drain. The bed was very uncomfortable and the room wasn't very clean.

There is internet there but not working. Warm people, good breakfast. But breakfast starts a kind of late 7:30 which is not good enough if you need to be in Dublin by 9. A kind of far from everything. Even local taxi drivers are struggling to find it.
