I recently went to The House for breakfast. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the food was superb. I would have loved to visit again in the evening if I had spent more time in Howth. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at Tara Hall and they recommended The House for dinner as it was "good" and "a short walk". With no reservation, we were seated right away. The place is just clean, quaint, and welcoming. Service was excellent...no need to say...More
