All great. Just book it. From the room to the food to the wine and the top shelf. You'll be right at home. Sea view and sound of the crashing waves a bonus. Grey sky is even nice from inside Try the kippers for breakfast

We arrived early but we're able to get into our room. We were very generously greeted and were shown to our room on the top floor. The view of the sea was wonderful. The room was nicely furnished and bigger than expected. The wardrobe contains a safe which we always find useful, the bathroom was scrupulously clean, and was kept... More

I travel to Dublin quite a lot and I got tired and fed up with the Hotels in central Dublin. I found this gem by chance as I wanted to eat at a fish restaurant. I began dining there and travelling from the town centre so good was the food. I then realised that not only did they have a... More

Let Joan and Aidan MacmManus welcome you to Howth, a precious seaside town 20 minutes and a world away from Dublin. Listen to the Irish Sea outside your window, walk around town in rain or shine, admire the fishmongers' displays on the West Pier, come home to East, the cafe in the inn, and sit by the fire with tea...

I love the family-ness of this place. The owners are very hands-on and quite friendly. I would consider it more of a B&B scene, truly, as opposed to a hotel. Nothing fancy, but quite lovely. We got there after a long tour around Ireland...we needed rest...and that is what we got. I enjoy photography...so I walked about the lovely pier... More

I had really high expectations about my visit here but I was totally underwhelmed by the experience, The room was very ordinary, and the bedding was tatty and outdated not at all what I expected, So all in all it was a less than satisfactory experience, My advice.......... look elsewhere there is better value for money at other locations

Always wanted to stay up in Howth, my parents live in Sutton which is down the road but kind of worlds away...waking up to the unimpeded view of the pier and Ireland's Eye was just unbeatable and exactly what we wanted. Having arrived much later than expected due to flight delays, we had to disturb the owner's son at home... More

Poor atmosphere, starter was very poor and missing an ingredient which was listed as part of it, main course was tasteless, chewy seafood and the worst veg and potatoes I have ever had, no taste whatsoever, bar food would have been better. don't know what happened to this place but it really has gone down hill. Standard of service extremely... More
