10 Questions About…

June in Howth by Ann Treacy

We went to Howth the first month we were in Ireland. We saw seals on that day but other than that it was a hellacious day. The restaurant we visited was terrible and we had to tie Aine down to keep her from hopping off the pier – into the 20 foot drop into the sea.

But even that day I felt that Howth was worth a second chance.

On Monday (a bank holiday) we went to Howth with Patrick’s mom. We ate in Dun Laoghaire on the way to Howth, which I have to admit would not have been my choice but soon we got onto the DART to Howth. The DART is the train that goes around the Dublin Bay. We live fairly close to the southernmost part of the bay; Howth is as north as you can go. It is a beautiful train ride.

The weather was perfect and we took a nice walk down the pier. From Dun Laoghaire, our part of town, we can always see Howth because it is directly across the bay so it was funny to looking the opposite direction – where we ended up looking at Bray. We also had a great view of Ireland’s Eye, a small island practically a swimming distance away from Howth.

After walking down the pier, the girls played on playground and we took a walk into Howth Village.
