Howth On a Budget
Howth is a traditional fishing village and suburb of Dublin that has gained popularity in recent years thanks to their beautiful natural scenery and incredible fresh seafood restaurants. The fresh sea air, relaxed atmosphere, and great seafood attracts tourists and Dubliners alike. They've also become a popular filming location due to Howth Castle and the picturesque harbours and walking trails.

The weather in Howth is, for the most part, like that of the rest of Ireland: cloudy, rainy, and rarely above 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to the city being located on a peninsula in the Irish Sea, they tend to get a bit more rain and wind, so pack your rain gear. The warmest months are May to August, with some of the busiest times being June and July.
Howth Pier is a great place to see gorgeous views of Dublin Bay, especially from Howth Lighthouse, located at the end of the pier. At the lighthouse, you can climb to the higher level for more extensive views, or stay on the lower level, especially on windy days. Head over to the West Pier to see the footprints of King George IV from when he came for a visit in 1821. From the pier, you can catch a ferry to Ireland's Eye, the uninhabited island right off the coast that's home to the ruins of Martello Tower and an 8th century church. You can purchase tickets directly on the ferry, or speak to your hotel about possible discounts.

Off of Harbour Road is the 14th century St. Mary's Abbey where you can catch gorgeous views of Howth Harbour and Ireland's Eye. From there, you can walk further East to the cliff walk for some of the best views in Howth. Walking South West from the center of town, you'll find Howth Castle; the inside can be toured every Sunday of August and September, while the grounds are open for touring throughout the year.
Howth is a very walkable city, with the majority of shops, restaurants, and tourist destinations located on Harbour Road. The main section of the road is only a 5-minute walk from the train station, making Howth an easy day trip destination from Dublin or a relaxing base to travel to other areas of Ireland from.

North of Howth is Malahide, a 45-minute train ride away, where you'll find the Malahide Castle. The castle is set in a stunning park where you can walk the grounds and find a model railway as well as a marina. A 20-minute train ride South West will take you to Dublin, where you can enjoy the city all day, and still make it back to Howth for a sunset stroll on the Harbour.

With all of the natural beauty in Howth, you'll be remiss not to take a walking tour through the city and its natural splendors. There are a number of different trails, including ones that will take you around the cliffs and others that will take you to through the mountains that overlook Dublin Bay. You can also have a traditional game of golf at the Deer Park Golf and Football grounds located near the Howth Castle where you can play 18 holes for a very reasonable price. Head over to Howth Castle for a cooking course at the Howth Castle Cookery School and then walk over to the National Transport Museum, just a stone's throw from the castle.
