We stopped in howth on our way back to Dublin. What a beautiful fishing port and harbour. The walk along the docks is beautiful and plenty of options for food or fresh seafood. If your lucky you can see sea lions in water.

Such a perfect day was this day. Slowly walked to the Lighthouse, was seeing the harbour with little ships. I became so calm down.

It was raining but we still wanted to walk the wall to see the wildness of the water, as well as the old stones that form the wall.

I spent a day in Howth there are few things to see and one is the lighthouse . By the harbour , reachable from town center by bus or dart. Very busy little town on weekends, many tourists and local people hanging over.

The harbor of close was beautiful with lots of shopping and food options. And a short walk to Howth Castle made it a great day trip.

A beautiful scenic harbor town protected by a lovely lighthouse. Free to walk about, see the sea lions, fisherman, kayakers, families all enjoying the scenery. Great for photographers too.
