The journey North on the Dart from Connolly Station does not have as many worthwhile stop-off points as the journey south. However, it does have one stop – the last one – which is certainly worth a visit: Howth. This beautiful coastal peninsula is a genuine must see Dublin holiday attraction.
Howth is a very prosperous town, as evidenced by the yachts and millionaire’s houses, and yet it has retained it’s earthy traditional atmosphere and is an area of both cultural and historical value.
It is clear that during the time of Napoleon the UK took the prospect of a French invasion of Ireland very seriously, as there is a Martello Tower can be found in Howth, as one can be found in Bray, Sandycove and Killiney.
