My family had the pleasure of staying at Peter & Jane's property for a full month, and are glad we chose this location! Highlights: - LOCATION was outstanding; a highly sought after suburb of Dublin, yet (thankfully) a few blocks away from the touristy Harbour Road. We made great use of the local library, grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shops, etc. For our son there were amazing playgrounds (e.g. St Anne's, Malahide Castle, St Stephen's Green, etc) within a short drive, and we made sure enjoyed the Howth Cliff Walk and Balscadden Bay beach. We rented a car for the full month though still made use of DART on various occasions due to its convenience. - HOSTS were available & helpful throughout the experience. Thank you Peter & Jane as well as the property manager (Vernoica) for quick responses, and for the very detailed Welcome package. - AMENITIES worked out great for the length of our stay (1 month), as it was our goal to "settle in" which meant making a lot of use of the kitchen, laundry, and so on. We had some challenges with the effectiveness of the dryer however Peter already has a plan to get it improved. The beds were comfy, the TV & Wifi worked fine, and the place felt quite safe & secure. On a side-note, many of the photos of the listing are out-of-date (at the time of this review) e.g. the backyard, and some of the interior furniture. Not an issue in any way though still would be good to have the latest & greatest reflected in the photos.

This was a really great house - much nicer than looks in the photos. We had a great stay here with everything we could possibly need and Howth village just a short walk away. Definitely recommend!

This cottage is everything it's listed as and more. Peter and Jane are such gracious hosts. This charming cottage has all the amenities to make your stay very comfortable while exploring Howth and Ireland. Peter provides a very detailed and helpful printout on how all appliances work in the cottage. If there are any questions, a property manager is easily contacted and close by. The cottage is wonderfully positioned at the top of a small incline and has beautiful views of Howth harbor and Ireland's Eye. There are markets and cafes within walking distance and the pubs in Howth are as good as any you will find in Dublin! With the close availability of buses, the train and taxis, you can get almost anywhere in Ireland without renting a vehicle. Adventures are plentiful in Howth, with the beginning of the cliff walk just steps from the cottage, boat trips out to explore Ireland's Eye and nature walks and experiences available. Also, if you're lucky, you will get a glimpse of the harbor seals! You absolutely can't go wrong staying in this cottage while enjoying your "Ireland experience"!

Everything was absolutely fantastic with this charming property. From the very start of reserving, chatting with the owners through VRBO messenger, to the last close of the door when leaving it was wonderful. The owners provide such detailed information and are so accommodating. There is plenty of space, the beds were so comfy, huge bonus having a dryer, the walk to town is not bad at all, the walk up the hill got us in shape and burned calories from the delicious fish and chips. We walked to the train station every day to get into Dublin City Center for our tours and it was easily walkable, took about 20 minutes to walk there. If on a scale from 1-10, 10 is best, this property and the property owners get a 100!!!! Thanks for a wonderful first trip to Ireland and your property is charming, spacious, conveniently located, well stocked, and beautiful!

Our Father-Son trip to Ireland was a complete success. We chose to stay in Howth, on the peninsula, instead of in Dublin, which was perfect for us as we love golf, hiking and a slower pace. Communication both before and during our trip with Peter was first-class. The apartment was very cozy and had a private little garden in the back. Situated on top of a little hill, it is very quiet, but still within easy walking distance of everything one needs - convenience store, grocery store, loads of good restaurants. The official starting point of the Howth Cliff Trail was only a 10 minute walk and multiple golf courses were within a 10 minute drive. We loved it and I hope to one day go back. Thank you!

Super ausgestattet, sehr bequem. Alles Notwendige ist vorhanden. Außenterrasse mit Blick Richtung Ireland's Eye, schön für ein Glas Wein am Abend. Howth ist ein netter kleiner Ort mit Anschluss an DART. Sehr schön ist die Wanderung um den Hügel herum, besonders wenn man vom üblichen Weg abweicht und den Pfad quer durch den schummrigen Urwald längs des Golfplatzes Richtung Howth Castle nimmt. Riesige Rhododendren in allen Farben, ein Dolmen; sehr urig!

We had a great time staying at Peter and Jane’s cottage. Howth is a charming village with lots of walking and great seafood. Due to my own lack of attention to details, I needed assistance to unlock the front door. The site manager was with us within ten minutes to lend help and Peter touched base via phone. The cottage is a bit of modern where you want it while still remaining cozy and quaint. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our bed was comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. I recommend this cottage for an authentic Irish stay without hesitation. If you are mobility challenged and plan to walk, the uphill walk to the cottage might be a lot. We loved this cottage and it’s quiet refuge.

We love Howth and staying in this cottage made it even better! The cottage was deceptively spacious and airy. Perfect for our family of 4!
