Howth is one of Dublin’s most beloved seaside towns amongst Dublin locals and visitors alike. With an impressive array of award-winning restaurants that come in both casual and fine dining form, this is one place that’ll have you spoilt for choice at every hour of the day.
And what if you’ve already eaten, and it’s only a drink that you’re after? Well, Howth has you covered on that front too. The bars here are full of character and Irish charm, with live music on every weekend attracting droves of vibrant crowds to the harbour.
So let it be known that whether you’re just looking for a refreshing blast of the fresh sea air, a hearty feast of seafood delights, or some evening drinks with friends, Howth is sure to keep you happy.
Octopussy is a fun, trendy seafood tapas restaurant that boasts award-winning chefs, fresh seafood, and a lively atmosphere seven days a week. The fish is actually bought from the family-run fish shop next door, who catch their daily supply right on the pier, so you may very well see your meal being caught on the harbour as you sit outside on their picnic-style benches and order your first drink!
A teeny little Italian eatery filled with buckets of charm and delicious aromas, Il Panorama is a gorgeous spot to stop off for Australian and Italian delicacies, including charcuterie boards; top quality wines; indulgent sweet treats and robust espressos. Locals love to come here first thing for their morning brew, but the cheerful Australian charm of the staff combined with the divine food and drinks keep a steady stream of hungry visitors coming in all day and night.
The Dog House offers a memorable place to enjoy a post walk lunch with friends, what with its outdoor “living room” style seating area, complete with fireplace, eclectic furniture, fairy lights and even an actual bed thrown into the mix! Their sizzling pizzas are particularly noteworthy, and accompanied by desserts and their wide range of drinks, you could easily spend the whole afternoon and evening here, getting lost in the magical ambience that surrounds you.
