Do not recommend. Owners very nice, but the room was horrid. The hallways had a peculiar odor, shower not good although they did supply robes, bed was awful, room dank and appeared not to have been updated in 20 years. Views of harbor were very very limited...a small window, hardly a view. Worse place we have stayed in all our trips to Europe. Howth is a one night town with a great harbor. Not much going on with exception of good seafood restaurants (including the King Sitric which also has a very good wine selection). Howth also has a very interesting working harbor. A good place to wind down after touring Ireland if you are leaving from the Dublin airport. Good airport access.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. In 1999, they extensively rebuilt their old Harbour Master's house, relocating the restaurant to the first floor with panoramic seaviews, and adding eight guest bedrooms. All the bedrooms are named after Lighthouses and have sea-views. DINING Fresh fish landed daily on Howth Pier, oysters and mussels from the west, lobster caught by our own fishermen in Balscadden Bay are among our specialities. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in our East Cafe Bar while choosing your wine from our outstanding Wine List. National Hospitality Awards Best Seafood Restaurant 2014. We are situated in the golfing heartland of North County Dublin and for sailors Howth Marina is three minutes walk. Enjoy a gentle stroll on the Pier before breakfast or a more energetic hike on the unspoilt Cliff Path and the trails of Howth Head. For business, shopping or sightseeing, Dublin City is only 25 minutes by Dart. Dublin Airport 25 minutes. ... more less
