We loaded Chris and Karen into the car and off we went exploring the countryside to the north of Dublin. Howth is a lovely seaside village 29 minutes from downtown Dublin. We wound our way along the water admiring the stone walls, ocean and beautiful homes. Howth is full of fishing vessels, little markets and restaurants. We wandered along the seawall admiring the view and did a little window shopping. We took Rick Steve’s advice and had lunch at The Oar House where I had the speciality of the area ‘Dublin Bay Prawns’. Yummy!
