We shared a fab vegetarian frittata with fresh ciabatta bread and pots of home-made onion relish for lunch. Then we hit the sweet stuff.
I had this amazing mountainous lemon meringue tart with clotted cream. Ches chose an apple and caramel crumble tart. Both were DIVINE.
We liked it so much we even went back on our last night to pick up takeaway boxes of their gorgeous baked chocolate tart!
Howth was gorgeous.
It’s a lovely little seaside village in the outer suburbs of Dublin. It only took us about half an hour on the DART (train) to get there from the centre of the city, so it’s definitely worth a visit if you have a spare day.
It’s very calming and picturesque. You can do long walks and hikes all along the peninsula from Howth, but our wine/whisky/Guinness hangovers required something a little bit more chilled…
After a lovely salady lunch at a cafe, we walked up the hill until we discovered an old church ruin with a beautiful graveyard and fab views over the harbour.
We were lucky to have pretty good weather with bright blue skies, but the wind was crazy, especially down on the pier!
Dublin has such an awesome vibe. The whole city just buzzes with energy. I’d love to go back one day!
