Second visit and everything was excellent. Joan and her staff are very efficient. We stayed on the top floor and the view was spectacular, we kept the windows open all night and all we could hear was the waves, really peaceful and Relaxing. In the morning Joan served us a sumptuous breakfast. Thank you King Sitric for a great time.

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. Our room was furnished beautifully with an amazing large ensuite bathroom. There was everything you needed in the room with a large selection of refreshments. The hotel bar appears to be "the place to be" in Howth and we had a lovely evening sitting outside admiring the beautiful view. Breakfast... More

The views are exceptional overlooking Irelands Eye, Howth Harbour, and Howth Head. The food well what can I say we ate a mixture of Mussels (Gorgeous), Lobster (Fabulous), and Chicken Wings (OMG the home made... More

The rooms seem to have been recently refurbished and have a modern airy feel . We had a sea view room which was perfect . Overlooking the lovely Harbour with the waves... More

Cosy and friendly atmosphere inside but severely understaffed when we ate here on a Monday afternoon. We waited almost an hour for our food only to receive cold portions and a stale burger bun. I would not recommend going here at all as there are far better places to eat and drink in Howth.

Absolutely gorgeous small hotel. They have done a lovely job of combining an elegant small hotel with a charming pun as well as fine dining. Gracious and helpful staff who were happy to fuss over a single female traveler. The rooms have recently been redone with modern moorish influenced bathroom tiles in colors reflecting the sea beyond your window.

Howth is a pearl in Dublin; beautiful walks around the peninsulaer, a busy and living fishing harbour, plenty seafood restaurants and pubs and plenty life. King Sitric is situated on the harbour with easy access to everything. Friendly reception, rooms are small but comfortable. On the ground floor the people passing on the pavement is a few inches from your... More

Had dinner here last night. Beautiful location with wonderful views from your table no matter where it is located in the restaurant floor. Food was excellent and cooked to absolute perfection. Needless to say we had fish for starters and mains. Prawns scallops and monk fish were perfectly cooked and delicious. Staff are so friendly and helpful without being intrusive.... More

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
