Our family really enjoyed the personal service we received from Joan. She made sure we were comfortable in our rooms, checked in with us to see if we wanted anything in particular for breakfast, and gave our taxi driver specific directions on the fastest route to the airport based on the time of day. She truly wanted us to have... More

This is really more a restaurant with rooms than a hotel - but that is a good thing. Rooms are a good size and the views are fabulous. No elevator if that matters (some rooms are up two sets of stairs). Only caveat would be that Howth is a busy holiday town so there can be some street noise. Great... More

Take a night or two when in the Dublin area and stay outside of the city. I stayed at the King Sitric for a night when a transitioned from the west of Ireland to Northern Ireland. I am glad I did. It is a very well-maintained and operated property. My room was excellent! Only regret: I did not stay more... More

We stayed here recently for one night. There were three of us, and they added an extra bed to a double room. However, the extra bed was made up just like the others, and it looked like it belonged there! We had a beautiful view of the Irish sea. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and helpful.

King Sitric isn't really a hotel but more a restaurant with a few rooms upstairs. We came in rather late on a Sunday when the restaurant closes early. But the bar downstairs was open and they checked us in a promised to take good care of us - and they did. The rooms are spacious and located right on the... More

Our daughter was getting married in Howth and we stayed in the King Sitric for a number of nights. Really lovely rooms. Family run. They were all so helpful while we were preparing for the big day. Had a meal in the restaurant on the night after the wedding. Really first class.

We found ourselves fortunate to be sat outdoors at the King Sitric just as the sun was setting on a beautiful sunny day in Howth. The Lobster and chips was simple yet elegant and the house ales are a wonderful compliment to a long day in the sunshine.

I had to stay in the area for one night only and all I wanted was an adequate hotel, but the King Sitric was more than that - the room was ideal and the staff were great. The food was lovely too! I was given a ground-floor room and advised not to leave the window open so felt a little... More

The King Sitric is a short drive away from the Hill of Tara but for all the world and time, the ancient heroes of the Emerald Isle could find a bed here and be royally treated! We were thoroughly spoilt : every morning we were offered a magnificent choice of breakfast delicacies, all equally inviting after a goodnight's rest in... More

We began a week-long trip to Dublin for business with a 2 night stay in the charming, small fishing village of Howth (pronounced Hoat, with a long "o" and a very hard "th" sound. ). The hotel includes two restaurants (casual cafe and more formal dining room) in addition to rooms right across the road from the Irish Sea. A... More
