The Cock Tavern is on Church Street near the ruins of Howth Abbey. It has a an authentic Irish feel with friendly locals, good staff and a nice open fire. I included this for the location alone as it has great views near the front door over the old abbey and out to the beautiful bay.

Curious Ireland images make interesting wall art, meaningful wedding presents or simply a thoughtful gift for someone who is living far away…….If you prefer COLOUR CLICK HERE or B&W CLICK HERE. (beautifully printed & packaged by the Irish Photo Archive)
