Off to Howth for the day? Lucky sod.
A real beauty of a spot, boasting..well, pretty much everything. And the best bit? Loads and loads of deadly food.
Its proximity to the Irish Sea means that fresh fish is always the order of the day, but Howth boasts so much more than that.
Just have a gander and see for yourself...
It's not often you get to check out the sights of the Portmarnock and Malahide coastline whilst you dine, but in Aqua it's the norm. Their menu is insanely good, boasting something for absolutely everyone.
Their fish options are better than you'd imagine. Yep, really. That good.
2. Beshoffs of Howth
This is as good as seafood gets.
Beshoff's sister store is next door, a fresh seafood market selling the most unbelievable catch of the days from the Irish Sea, which sits about a hundred yards from there.

Not too shabby, eh?
