Howth with its unique micro-climate giving it warm, sunny days on the Head overlooking the busy harbour full of trawlers and yachts with its cool sea breezes,  gives the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a vast selection of fresh seafood landed on Howth’s own West Pier. The proximity to Dublin City Centre make it accessible for all, and when they get here the visitor has the opportunity to sample incredibly fresh produce in a huge variety of venues from the traditional pub  to the upmarket restaurant.

Howth is primarily a fishing village and a large part of the fish and shellfish landed on the East Coast of Ireland are brought ashore here for distribution.  The West Pier in Howth has some of the best fish retailing in Ireland.

Nearly all of Howths 16 restaurants and 6 pubs feature fish prominently on their menus and cite the name of their fish & shellfish suppliers from the West Pier. The iconic Dublin Bay Prawn can be found on the menus of many of the town’s restaurants and pubs and most of these are landed in Howth as the main fishing beds stretch North of Howth towards Drogheda.

All of the restaurants and pubs use Beef traceable to Bord Bia Quality approved farms and also use Irish Artisan cheeses extensively and of course Irish milk, butter and cream. Most of the town’s restaurant and pubs use vegetable suppliers who source their products from the nearby market gardening areas of Rush, Donabate and Lusk in Fingal.
