Where you'll be

We will see the best views of Ireland's Eye Island, Howth Harbour Lighthouse, and Kings Footprints along the West Pier—followed by a walk through the higher parts of the village to see the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey and the Martello tower, which was the site of the first Howth Castle in the 12th Century.
