Covid – 19 

In light of the Corona Virus we at Visit Howth would like to reach out to the community at large to offer assistance  to anyone currently in a vulnerable position. If you or anyone you know needs help with the collection of groceries or medicines, we have volunteers who are willing to help you with this and provide ‘contactless’ drop offs for these essentials. There has also been offers of Ready Meals, Batches of Soup/ Bread etc by community spirited individuals and businesses.

If you feel you may need assistance or are in a position to help with this volunteer effort. Please contact me on 086 275 2784 and we will add you to our group. Visit Howth will coordinate with both volunteers and recipients and be assured that safety of all is our paramount concern.

To all our visitors, the majority of our pubs and restaurants have decided to close to adhere to the rules the HSE and the Government have recommended. We hope you understand, and we’re already looking forward to a time where we can all reopen. Remember, please stay inside not just for yourself but for the benefit of those vulnerable. When you are outside, please recognize the importance of social distancing and the impact it can have on reducing this virus tenfold. 


Welcome to Howth!


Welcome to the small seaside village of Howth, where the land meets the sea and creates the most amazing natural environments for adventure and the great outdoors. Oozing with history and culture, Howth is one of Dublin’s oldest working harbours with it ranking as one of Ireland’s busiest fishing ports to date.

Something we’re sure of – fresh seafood makes for fine food and entertainment. And with cool niche shopping, some of the most unique outdoor experiences and a broad range of health, fitness and beauty offerings, our little village is a must-see.

For the last 9000 years, Howth has become a hotspot for European itineraries with visitors recognizing the charm of our community and sights, and with a bustling atmosphere to match it’s understandable why so many find themselves coming back time and time again.

Thrill and inspire yourself with the activities available on our ‘Things to Do’ page. Or on the contrary if you’re looking to hideaway on our little peninsula for a relaxing weekend, check out ‘Where to Stay’.

Experience all that Howth has to offer.
