Howth or Binn Éadair in Irish (meaning éadar’s Peak), was first settled by Norse Vikings in 819 and was a strategic settlement on the routes between Scandinavia and the Mediterranean until Brian Ború, the high king of Ireland defeated the Norse in 1014. The village is situated on the Howth Peninsula, east of central Dublin and features in the work of James Joyce. The grounds of 15th-century Howth Castle have rhododendron gardens and a transport museum with local trams. The 19th-century Martello Tower houses a vintage radio museum. The medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey lie nearby. A clifftop trail has sweeping sea views. Offshore, Ireland’s Eye is an island bird sanctuary with an ancient ruined church.
