Howth

Howth, 14.4km north-east of Dublin, a peninsula which forms the northern boundary of Dublin Bay. From the top of the hill of Howth, there are magnificent views of Dublin City and the Wicklow mountains. Howth Harbour on the northern side is a noted yachting centre. 1.6km off-shore is the little island called Ireland's Eye. Farther north is Lambay Island, a noted bird sanctuary. In the town itself are the ruins of Howth Abbey, and adjoining, is the demesne of Howth Castle, justly famous for its magnificent Rhododendron walk and Public Golf Course. The Rhododendron walk is open throughout the year except Christmas Day. It also contains a massive Dolmen known as "Aideens Grave".
