We have recently spent 4 nights at the Highfield B&B. I will try to be as fair as possible so: The good's: it is run by a lovely welcoming couple. The house is old and could potentially be amazing. Location is ok, 20 mins far from Howth village. The bad's: very old and rundown structure, the bedrooms are extremely smelly... More

For the third time in the last five years we stayed in Highfield for a few days. We enjoyed a comfortable room en suite overlooking the garden, with a distant view over the bay, great Irish breakfasts and, last but not least, Margaret's and Michael's warm hospitality (and sense of humour!). We think the location is ideal: - 6 minutes... More

We called in here for 1 night in late May, without booking and were shown to a back facing double room with no view and a serious lack of heating! Our room was very small and dreary with old worn bed linen and a sagging old mattress. It is just not acceptable in 2014! The house had some lovely and... More

I am an Englishman living in Spain and my wife & I fancied a break from the sun in fun filled Dublin. We left Dublin for a few days outside of the city centre and ended up in the perfect village of Howth, just a short train ride away. Mick & Margaret were our hosts and were very hospitable. We...

Nice little B&B situated half way up the hill. Large en suite room, with TV, big window, but at the back so no view. Off the road private parking. The room was a double and included cooked breakfast for 70 Euro. Nice friendly breakfast room, as you share the table with the other guests too. Bus stop right outside of... More
