We’ve been here twice now in the past few weeks and look forward to returning many more times in the future since this beautiful place is located only 20 minutes from the Dublin Airport. Can hardly believe we never knew about it before. There is...More

When I go to Howth I really like to go to this lighthouse. The view is really good, and walking to it, you can feel the sea and the wind on your skin and to breath a different air.

We stopped in howth on our way back to Dublin. What a beautiful fishing port and harbour. The walk along the docks is beautiful and plenty of options for food or fresh seafood. If your lucky you can see sea lions in water.

Such a perfect day was this day. Slowly walked to the Lighthouse, was seeing the harbour with little ships. I became so calm down.

It was raining but we still wanted to walk the wall to see the wildness of the water, as well as the old stones that form the wall.

We had a nice walk to the end of the pier to see the lighthouse. It was rather busy the day we went over. I think it was Bank Holiday in Ireland so lots of people had the day off and ventured to the park....More
