Best seafood restaurant in Howth.

Best seafood restaurant in Howth.

We got a lovely write up by The Culture Howth has for many years evolved as a fantastic food destination for locals and tourists. With it's beautiful walks, boat trips and seal spotting it certainly whets your appetite for great seafood, oysters, beer battered fish & chips and creamy chowder.

We love what we do here at The Brass Monkey. We are very lucky to have such incredible fresh produce on our doorstep such as local smoked salmon from Nicky's Plaice via the West Pier, Doran's seafood and great Irish producers. 

The Dublin Bay Prawn Festival during the summer was a huge success and thousands flocked to Howth for some great food, music and family fun. So next time you are thinking about what to do with the family, hop on the DART and give Howth a try!

Gardaí raid fishing trawlers in Howth over probe into illegal workers

Gardaí raid fishing trawlers in Howth over probe into illegal workers

Members of the dedicated Garda Immigration Unit were searching trawlers in Howth Harbour recently. Gardai searched a ­number of fishing trawlers in ports across the country as part of an investigation into the use of unregistered migrant workers. The latest raid was in Howth and followed similar inspections of vessels in Cork, Galway, Kerry, Louth and Donegal. 

It is understood the primary focus of the probe was the movement of undocumented workers from countries in Africa and South East Asia. A number of individuals in the fishing industry were questioned by detectives following raids on specific trawlers. Gardai say they received full co-operation from the fishing industry operatives they contacted.

Never a dull moment in Howth.




Whole lot of shaking going on...

Is Howth becoming a trendy, music destination? Can we hold our own and draw a crowd to lil ole Howth or do we lose out to the big smoke for a good night out?

Here's a good place to start... Bring out the Chimp plays The Bloody Stream 9pm Saturday October 22nd. 

Morrissey and The Smiths fans were in for a treat when 'These Charming Men' played The Abbey Tavern, October 1st. 

We had the Howth jazz & blues festival over the August bank holiday weekend which was a huge success. 

Wrights Findlater House has regular live music. 

So get your glad rags & your dancing shoes on, catch the DART to Howth Station and boogie your night away!

Don't forget to book dinner at The Brass Monkey, West Pier.

See you soon party people.
