Located on the peninsula of Howth Head approximately 16 kilometers east and slightly south of Dublin Airport in eastern Ireland, Howth is a seaside town and fishing village which is also an affluent suburb of Dublin, with a population of approximately 8,300 residents.
Sunday Morning Photograph October 30 2022: The Coast of Howth in Ireland.
The marine vessels, the deep blue color of the water, and the sea breeze only accentuated the peaceful meandering along the coast — allowing time to simply slip on by.
The polished stainless steel sculpture called Realt na Mára — or Star of the Sea — was erected in 2013 on the East Pier of Howth Harbour.
Final Boarding Call
If you have a few hours to spare before your flight departs from Dublin Airport and the weather happens to be nice — if not ideal, as it was on that cool, crisp, and sunny autumn morning — do be sure to take the short drive of approximately 20 minutes to Howth and spend some time relaxing and watching people.
