Explore the castle and make the most of the new interpretative center and retail facility.

You'll soon arrive in the quaint fishing port of Howth, where you'll stop at the 11th-century Abbey Tavern to enjoy a traditional Irish lunch. Nestled against the ancient ruins of Howth Abbey, with the lovely fishing harbor and marina below, Abbey Tavern is an ideal spot in which to rest and savor the genuine atmosphere of old Ireland. Blazing turf fires, original stone walls, flagstone floors and gaslights make for a truly warm welcome.
