Stayed here over a bank holiday weekend. Had a lovely break and would strongly recommend.
Love Howth and concentration of seafood restaurants with the King Sitric pertfectly located on the sea front.
Our room was beautifully furnished, spacious and spotless. The view was great with uninterupted views over the harbour and sea. The position of the building at the end of the street meant that there was very little passing traffic to disturb a good nights sleep. Was nice to leave the window open and listen to the waves through the night.
Breakfast was a highlight, selection and all beautifully cooked / presented. The owner was also on hand in the restaurant to help out in any way, either in terms of the restaurant, accomodation or indeed in planning the days activities.
We had dinner one night in the restaurant and it was, as expected, top class. Our only regret is that we didnt give the wine bar on the ground floor a go for dinner one of the nights as there was a great atmosphere and plenty of people about - the upstairs dining is a bit more formal. (wine bar was nice for an afternoon stop off).
I love this place for its proximity to the harbour and all the other restauarnts, cafes and general buzz. If staying in Dublin, should always consider this place as a possibility. Its at the upper end of the price bracket and for accommodation alone, its probably difficult to justify but where this place comes in its own is the food with accommodation.
Not sure what it would be like with kids but works well for couples. Hope to get there again soon.
