Howth / Beann Éadair is a picturesque coastal village situated on the scenic Howth peninsula just 10 miles north of Dublin city centre and 5 miles from Dublin Airport.
Originally an island, the isthmus at Sutton Cross joined it to the mainland giving us Howth peninsula. Howth is a place where the past meets the present, mixing its history and legend with the vibrancy and originality of today.
Its an ideal place to come and stay or visit for a day trip. Howth's leisurely ambience, wonderful scenery, friendly people and charming restaurants and bars ensure you'll be back to visit us once more.
At its heart is Howth harbour with its fishing trawlers and yachting marina - Howth Yacht Club.
Howth is best discovered on foot and the waterfront and piers are a good starting point on your exploration of the area. They afford a great view of the enchanting Ireland's Eye offshore and of the village itself.
