King Sitric


At he extreme eastern end of Howth stands the King Sitric Restaurant, a gaily painted, modest building with nothing to obstruct 90 degree views from its windows to the harbour, the southern cliffs and out across the Irish sea. Originally the old Harbour Master's house, the MacManus' have owned King Sitric since 1971 and built up a reputation for a first class fish restaurant. Then just two years ago they virtually rebuilt the whole premises, creating 8 very comfortable bedrooms, all with telephone, hairdryer, TV, and tea and coffee making facilities. Each one has a sea view and they are named after lighthouses. The cleverly designed first floor restaurant ensures that every table can enjoy the view, and an atmospheric bar on the ground floor incorporates the cellar, which is stocked with a superb selection of wines, of which Aidan and Joan are justifiably proud.

Apart from its proximity to the centre of Dublin and the airport, Howth is a delightful place to visit, with its fishing harbour, marina, cliff walks and golf courses. Major credit cards accepted.
