Looking to get away from the city for a day? Check out one of Dublin’s coastal cities, Howth, which is only 9 miles from the city center (and a short/inexpensive train ride away!)
Howth is a BIG fishing town. I’m talking about rows upon rows of fresh fish markets selling every type of fish imaginable. Howth is an active working harbor, marina and the focal point of the village. West pier is where fishing boats land their daily catches, nets are mended and fish are auctioned. This small fishing town is great for families and friends to enjoy! The walk around the coast is very easy and the views are stunning. Don’t forget to stop at one of the many restaurants located in Howth to have a traditional ‘fish n chips’ lunch!
