For mains 2 of us had black sole and I had the monkfish. All were excellent, couldn't fault any of the dishes, apart from one slight complaint that the Black... More

The owners are warm and friendly people always looking to please you. The rooms are far more comfortable than the average in hotels of the same category. I also recommend the breakfast held in the restaurant with a breathtaking view looking over the seashore. Not mentioning the restaurant that has been granted the title of best seafood restaurant of the... More

Little and comfortable hotel, with a great restaurant and nice rooms with sea views. The staff is really nice and they help you in everything they can. The hotel is located in a beautiful place next to the sea. You have the howth cliffs and the little port right next to you. I definately reccomend this fantastic hotel!

We took a taxi to Howth after an overnight flight from the states. We arrived around eleven and asked to check in early. We were treated to tea and coffee while our room was made ready even though we were early. The room overlooked the waterfront with a beautiful view. The cliff walk can be started outside the front door... More

I had delicious huge crab claws there (there were about 4 of them in the big helping). My friends had a crab, bechamel and cheese casserole which was lovely too, and the open crab sandwich. We sat on high stools, facing the harbour. The carrot cake was nice, so were the Irish and Baileys coffees. The only downside : after... More

We stayed in Howth because an old friend was born there, cannot imagine why he would ever have left!!! The King Sitric was the 10th hotel we had stayed in during a 6 week tour and it was the best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Established in 1971, Aidan and Joan MacManus have earned an international reputation for fresh seafood in their harbour-side restaurant in the picturesque fishing village of Howth. In 1999, they extensively rebuilt their old Harbour Master's house, relocating the restaurant to the first floor with panoramic seaviews, and adding eight guest bedrooms. All the bedrooms are named after Lighthouses and have sea-views. DINING Fresh fish landed daily on Howth Pier, oysters and mussels from the west, lobster caught by our own fishermen in Balscadden Bay are among our specialities. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in our East Cafe Bar while choosing your wine from our outstanding Wine List. National Hospitality Awards Best Seafood Restaurant 2014. We are situated in the golfing heartland of North County Dublin and for sailors Howth Marina is three minutes walk. Enjoy a gentle stroll on the Pier before breakfast or a more energetic hike on the unspoilt Cliff Path and the trails of Howth Head. For business, shopping or sightseeing, Dublin City is only 25 minutes by Dart. Dublin Airport 25 minutes. ... more   less
