Fodor's Review

Separated from Howth Harbour by a channel nearly 1½ km (1 mile) wide is Ireland's Eye, with an old stone church on the site of a 6th-century monastery, and an early-19th-century Martello tower. In calm summer weather, local boatmen make the crossing to the island from the East pier in Howth Harbour. Check the notice board in the harbor for the number of a boat owner willing to do the trip.
