What's included

Howth Harbour was built in 1817 to be the main port in Dublin for mail boats going to England. It was later replaced by Kingstown (Dún Laoghaire) as the main port. Since then, Howth has retained its character as a fishing village rather than large port. Smell the salty air and listen to the calls of seagulls and herons as we walk along the harbour. See the lobster fishermen and trawlers go about their day’s work. Watch the seals in the harbour move playfully together.

This is a journey through time in one of the most significant ports of Ireland which has played its role in both Irish and European history. Revive the warriors of the Fíanna, the Early Christians, the Vikings who named this town, the Anglo-Normans who took Howth in 1177, the 1798 Rebellion and the Martello Towers and later the Irish Volunteers who landed guns in Howth in 1914 that would be used in the 1916 Rising. This tour leaves our guests feeling like locals, in a home away from home.
