Description

Visit Howth for a refreshing coastal stroll, savouring this bustling port.  This Unesco Biosphere shelters wonderful wildlife and fabulous views. Feel old Ireland, in the footsteps of a King.  Learn tales of the offshore islands of Ireland Eye and Lambay, and where the the Vikings and Normans made their mark.  King Sitric founded the 11th century Abbey before Howth Castle and the Pirate Queen famously fell out.  The French Revolution left us Martello Towers.  Captain William Bligh of the Mutiny on The Bounty did his bit and the young Winston Churchill was hidden from his parents scandals.  The Howth Gun Running and the Asgard armed the 1916 Easter Rising. The artists, poets and Rock and Rollers also made themselves at home and U2 cut their teeth here. Finish up with the most celebrated seafood in Ireland whatever your budget or move on into the craic in the authentic local bars and cafes.
