Apr 17, 2017 - Howth Harbour

We had a wonderful Easter dinner with Mary, the family and Helen. On Monday, we took a road trip to Howth Harbor. It was a school holiday, so lots of families and children. It was a lovely day, and Eric's dog Aoife went with us. She was great. What a charming coastline and charming house, considered a suburb of Dublin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howth Originally just a small fishing village, Howth with its surrounding once-rural district is now a busy suburb of Dublin, with a mix of dense residential development and wild hillside.

Jul 16, 2013 - Getting closer to Dublin

Leaving the working class town of Waterford for the penisula village of Howth just northeast of Dublin. After John went to a musuem, and Janet went to the Waterford Crystal facory tour, we took the train north. had to transfer to a trolley and then a bus, but it was worth it. Howth is mostly a bedroom community but is a nice quick get away for people to get to the sea. We had a lovely meal of fish and chips and then walked around the harbor for awhile. We saw but could not photograph a harbor seal. There were lots of people out having fun.

May 20, 2012 - Dublin by Candice

Hello hello, and welcome to Dublin! I'm Candice, and I've hijacked Shauna's travel blog! These are pictures from our first full day as travel mates. We had a leisurely start to the day following a night in the pub (plus I was wrecked, having spent nearly 40 hours on the go!) so we didn't get going until about 10:30. We took a walk up to see Copper Face Jack's pub, then picked up some groceries and had brunch in Stephen's Green. It's a lovely park, right in the centre of Dublin, which used to be privately owned but was gifted by the Guinness...

May 19, 2012 - Howth - Best Fish n' Chips Around!

Howth is a fishing village on the North side of Dublin City with some amazing views over Dublin Bay. The famous Bailey Lighthouse has guided ships safely into Dublin over the centuries. There are open air markets most weekends on the pier. There are some restaurants serving fish dishes straight from the sea to plate. The best place with fish and chips is definitely Beshoff Bros. The fish was tender, fresh, and very flavourful. While roaming the pier I got a visit from a couple of large seals! The public are no longer allowed to feed them...
