About our home

Our house is late Victorian with a lot of period features. The rooms are well furnished and spacious, elegant but also cosy. It's Irish name is Cuilcam which means 'Crooked Nook' as none of the rooms are quite symetrical. There is an open fire in the sitting room and beautiful sea views from our roof terrace. It is right in the heart of historic Howth, a small fishing town on the north tip of Dublin bay, that dates right back to the vikings. There are traditional irish pubs (several with regular traditional music) and fantastic sea food restaurants right on our doorstep. Dubliners come from all over the city to buy fresh fish in Howth.There are also breathtaking cliff walks, lovely beaches and easy transport links into Dublin city centre (20 minutes by train or bus). Our car would of course be available to anyone who comes to stay. There are fantastic day trips to be had including The Abbey at Glendalough, walking in the Wicklow mountains, the ancient seat of the high Kings of Ireland at The Hill of Tara and the amazing neolithic Newgrange.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with an 12 year old daughter and an 8 year old son. We live in Howth, just outside Dublin, right int he centre of the village,
    surrounded by pubs, restaurants and sea views (from the master bedroom and roof garden)

  2. We are both actors

  3. We'd like to travel as much as we can with our two children, on and off the beaten track. This year though we would like to holiday in Ireland and are open to offers for any time in August, preferably a few hours drive form home, in the south or the west.

Where is it?


Howth is a very picturesque and buzzy seaside town. It has beautiful cliff walks and hilltop rambles with stunning views of Dublin, Wicklow, and north to the mountains of Mourne. There are loads of very good bars and restaurants specialising in freshly caught fish and seafood.
It's on the DART line and you can be in Dublin city centre in 25 mins. It has commanding views of both Ireland's Eye and Lambay, both of which are great days out and can accessed by ferry.
