HOWTH PENINSULA & ST PATRICK’S DAY By: - Lucia Antón De Vega - Laura Carrasco Palma - María Fernández Torres - Rosana Rollán Sánchez-Ramad
This is the first day we stayed in Ireland. We went to Howth Peninsula by train, it took us one hour and a half. In Howth we saw two big seals in the sea, then we walked around the peninsula and we arrived to a cliff. We were very hungry so we ate a typical food: fish and chips. It was so delicious!
INFORMATION Location and Food: The picturesque seaside village of Howth is located on the peninsula of Howth Head, north east of Dublin city. You can watch fishing trawlers landing their catch and purchase the freshest seafood from the fish markets along the west pier. Howth’s speciality is the best and freshest fish. There is a wide choice of places to eat from takeaways and gasttropubs to fine dininig.
In the afternoon, we took the train again to go back to Dublin. In Dublin we couldn’t see the St Patrick’s Parade. It was raining so we went to the Natural Museum, this ruined our tour in Dublin. Then we went to a shopping centre in the middle of Dublin, it was big and made of glass. During the day we took some photos.
Places of interest: - Howth Castle - The National Transport Museum - The Kitchen in the Castle Cookery School
