Howth

Howth is a village and outer suburb of Dublin, Ireland. The district occupies the greater part of the peninsula of Howth Head, forming the northern boundary of Dublin Bay. It is also a civil parish in the ancient barony of Coolock. Originally just a small fishing village, Howth with its surrounding once-rural district is now a busy suburb of Dublin, with a mix of dense residential development and wild hillside. The only neighbouring district on land is Sutton. Howth is also home to one of the oldest occupied buildings in Ireland, Howth Castle.Howth has been a filming location for movies such as The Last of the High Kings, Boy Eats Girl and Sing Street.Location and accessHowth is located on the peninsula of Howth Head, which begins around 13km east-north-east of Dublin, on the north side of Dublin Bay. The village itself is located 15km from Dublin city centre (the ninth of a series of eighteenth century milestones from the Dublin General Post Office (GPO) is in the village itself), and spans most of the northern part of Howth Head, which is connected to the rest of Dublin via a narrow strip of land (or tombolo) at Sutton Cross. Howth is located in the County of Fingal.
