Saint Mary's Abbey

Howth has a strong Viking connection and its name is derived from the old Norse name for ‘Head’. King Sitric, the Norse Viking King of Dublin, founded the earliest church here in 1042 in what was then a waterfront site. The church was replaced in 1235 by this abbey and was served by a small community of priests. The building was enlarged in the 16th century and the bell cote was added. In 2011 a number of skeletons and coffins were washed out of the abbey after heavy thunderstorms.

01:30 PM

Baily Lighthouse

The Baily Lighthouse is located at the end of a promontory on Howth overlooking Dublin Bay. This is the historic shipping channel between Dublin and Wales and over the centuries hundreds of ships and thousands of lives have been lost to the sea. This was also the location where the Vikings fled after the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. The first light signal was built here in 1667 and the Baily Lighthouse was built in 1814 – 134 feet above the sea. Its fog bell was added in 1853 after 80 lives were lost close by when The Queen Victoria sank. In 1996, the lighthouse was converted to automatic operation, and the last of ‘The Keepers’ left in 1997, making The Baily the last Irish lighthouse to go automatic.

02:00 PM

Climb the Ben of Howth to see the famous panoramic views of the east coast of Ireland.
