Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Howth - 1 Balglass Road

2 Bedroom House, Sleeps 4, With View Of Howth Harbor And Ireland's Eye

Our charming 110-year old 2-bedroomed home, bright, welcoming and beautifully renovated, sits above the village of Howth, overlooking Howth Harbour and Ireland's Eye, the iconic island outside the harbor, just 9 miles from Dublin city center.

Howth is the scenic and recreational jewel of the Dublin area, sitting in a hilly peninsula on the north side of Dublin Bay with stunning views of the bay to the south and the coast line to the north. The harbor, with its two popular piers, includes a working fishing port as well as a large marina, and is an important sailing venue. The peninsula has a wide array of wonderful scenic walking paths over the hills and around the cliffs, and is popular with birdwatchers.

Our house was built in 1905 but has been extended and totally renovated, and includes all modern amenities. It is bright and fresh, with 2 bedrooms that can comfortably sleep 4 people, full bathroom, living room and a bright fully-fitted kitchen / dining room overlooking the garden. Total floor area is approx 1,000 sq ft. The garden includes a deck / patio and offers views of Howth Harbor and Ireland’s Eye. The front of the house has 2 parking spaces.

The house is 300 yards from Howth Village, including shops, church and bus service to the center of Dublin; 0.4 miles from Howth Harbour; 0.7 miles (12 minute walk) from the DART rapid transit rail station serving the center of Dublin and southern areas of the city; and 8.9 miles from Dublin city center.

Howth has 2 fine golf courses, numerous excellent restaurants, and the 15th century Howth Castle which includes its famed wild rhododendron gardens, which are open to the public in summer, and the National Transport Museum of Ireland. As can be expected in a fishing port, many of the restaurants are particularly noted for fine seafood. Howth also has several well-known pubs, including the Abbey Tavern, which is renowned nationally for Irish folk and traditional music, and is only 5 minutes’ walk from our house.

All this within 20 minutes of the center of Dublin!

About Peter and Jane Ahern

We are Peter and Jane Ahern. We both grew up and were educated in Ireland. We met when we both worked for the Irish government’s Industrial Development Authority (IDA Ireland), and got married in Dublin. Soon after that, we moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where we have lived for many winters! Our two children live and work in the Cleveland area but, from numerous visits though their lifetimes, they both know every inch of the Howth peninsula!

Peter and Jane Ahern purchased this house in 2003

Why Peter and Jane Ahern chose Howth

Jane grew up on the Howth peninsula and her mother and brothers still live there. Over our years in the US we have spent many wonderful vacations there with family and friends, enjoying the spectacular scenery and great social life. It was our dream to find a house in Howth, and when we learned that 1 Balglass Road was for sale in 2003, Peter made a quick trip to Ireland and, after a few quick phone calls with Jane back in Cleveland, immediately bought it. It was perfect!

What makes this house unique

Our Irish home is full of character, over 100 years old but with every modern amenity, in a quiet street, but still within a short walk of all of the attractions of Howth Village and Howth Harbour with their restaurants, pubs, Yacht Club, shops, pier walks and marina.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (me, my husband, our two young boys and my mother) had a wonderful stay in the beautiful village of Howth. The pictures don't do the cottage justice - it's more spacious and even more beautiful! The property is well maintained, the beds comfortable and there were plenty of towels for all of us. As we only stayed for four nights we felt we didn't have enough time to enjoy the cottage, or the charming village. There are lots of nice looking restaurants and the village seems vibrant. Beshoff's fish and chips and Maud's ice cream got a thumbs up even from our at times fussy 4-year old!

On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find a travel cot provided for our baby as this hadn't been previously specified. Peter was wonderful in keeping in touch and provided plenty of useful information regarding both the property and Howth.

We would definitely recommend this property and I'm pretty sure we will be renting it again.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful place to stay, the accommodation is first class, well maintained and has a homely and relaxed ambience.
It is within walking distance to the harbour and restaurants within Howth or Dublin City Centre via the DART ( about 30mins). Customer service was excellent which included a handbook which we receive beforehand and was very detailed.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Howth

Happiness in Howth

  • 5 out of 5
This property deserves 5-stars! I spent 3 weeks luxuriating in its charm and in the lovely village of Howth. The owner provided invaluable advice on a variety of topics including restaurants, transportation, etc. I found the refrigerator stocked with basics, a lovely surprise upon arrival when one is bone-tired from a long trip. I recommend this property without reservation.

Lovely!

  • 5 out of 5
I may be biased -- being one of the fam and whatnot -- but I am quite adamant that there is no nicer spot in Dub than Howth... And, well, location, location, location. The house is not only just a few min walk from the village (phenomenal restaurants, right over the water), pier (lovely for a stroll) and gorgeous cliff walks (my favourite) -- but also is just a hop, skip and jump from the DART station -- much faster and hassle-free than driving into town and trying to find parking. If I could stay anywhere in Dub, it would be here.
