About Veronica Fearon

Tony and myself, Veronica, are brother and sister. Tony lives and works in San Francisco and has been in the US for over 20 years. The apartment is his "bolt hole" when he manages to return home for holidays. I manage the apartment in his absence. Along with our sister, we all grew up and went to school in Sutton, which is on the other side of "the hill" so we have a very good local knowledge of the area and the people. Our family still lives locally.

What makes this apartment unique

This Howth apartment is a little piece of heaven. Built about 10 years ago it is situated adjacent to all local amenities. The site itself was the old "St Lawrence House" built around 1840. It was subsequently converted into the St. Lawrence Hotel, which would be fondly remembered by locals. The facade of the original villa type building was maintained and fronts the next door apartments. The hotel was for years a hub of activity for weddings, diners and of course the night club which was a destination for us locals as well as a large number of teenage north siders!

The building's situation is second to none overlooking the harbour and the West Pier. From the quiet apartment you can enter a hive of activity on the doorstep. (The best of both worlds!) Shops, restaurants and pubs are within walking distance. The Howth Market, open every weekend is right next door. You can sit and have a coffee and watch the activity of the market or indulge in a little shopping for gifts, fresh bread, food stalls, bric-a-brac, jewellery to name a few. A 5 minute stroll across the road and you are on the long sandy Burrow Beach. Meander down the West Pier and check out the Fish shops and Beshoffs Market or choose a restaurant to dine in later! Or walk over to the East Pier and just admire the expansive ocean view. At the end of your day exploring you can return to the bright, comfortable apartment where it is a quiet, private, light oasis. Cosy in the winter and bright and airy in the summer with the full length glass doors opening on to the sunny balcony. We could go on and on about the beautiful places to walk and the extraordinary views to be seen around the Howth Peninsula but you will have to discover some of them for yourselves!! We're sure you'll love it as much as we do!

Howth is a well known fishing port and a popular suburban resort 15km north-east of Dublin city centre. Its attractions include some of the best views of Dublin Bay across to Dun Laoghaire and the Wicklow Mountains beyond. Ireland's Eye, a bird sanctuary with old monastic ruins can be seen from the East Pier. Boat trips may be taken to visit the Island during the summer. Cliff paths lead around the coastline or through Howth village. Through the village you will pass the ruins of Howth Abbey and graveyard where the remains of some of the early Barons of Howth - St. Lawrence Family are buried. Or take the coastal walk which will bring you onto the East Mountain and on around to the Baily Lighthouse. The 15th-century Howth Castle is within walking distance. During the summer months you will be astounded by the beautiful rhododendron gardens. Although partly in ruins Howth Castle is still home to the descendants of the Family who were once the Barons of Howth and a very successful Cookery School is run from the once ancient Kitchens. Howth's Transport Museum is housed within the Castle grounds where the old local tram, which was the form of transport around "the hill" can be viewed. Howth's variety of pubs and restaurants will add to your enjoyment for eating out or you can visit the local fish shops and pick up some fresh fish to cook at home! We hope you have a very pleasant stay.

Very Clean, Very Quite and Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is impressive. At night when you are sleeping, it is so quite! The building sets back from the road a distance and this unit is in the back, facing a tall hill. I heard no external noise each night until about 7:00 AM at which time a flock of sea gulls would fly by making noise.

The master bedroom has a slanted window so when you look out you are looking at only at the hillside and trees. The deck off the sitting area also has a nice view of the hillside behind the building.

The first couple of mornings I found it annoying taking a shower in the master bathroom. I would start the water down below and then push the lever to have the water diverted to the showerhead. There would be a hammering sound and then only a fraction of the water would come out of the showerhead. The third morning I figured out that if you slowly pushed the lever there wouldn't be the hammering sound and you obtained full water flow!

The location of this property is very convenient. The rail station or the bus stop are both only a two minute walk from the apartment. The DART train is a little faster, but we enjoyed taking the double deck bus as is goes along the ocean for a distance and then some nice neighborhoods. There is a couple of places in the village to buy groceries. For better selection, we walked the three miles to Sutton where there is a large grocery store (Super Value). It was a nice walk as there are only a couple of cross streets in that distance. The bus will also take you there.

If you stay here, be certain to allow half a day to hike the cliff outside Howth. You can walk two paths, one right on the edge or the other well away from the edge. In either case, the view is impressive!

All in all, we were very satisfied with this rental. It felt very warm and homey. It was very peaceful looking out at the hill. Would love to stay here again in the future!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The big things: comfortable beds, steady hot water with good pressure, clean and spacious.

Very secure building! The garden view apartment was very close to the DART to go into Dublin, about 30 mins. We enjoyed Dublin but especially enjoyed Howth. Great restaurants with great seafood, lots of places to walk, fine lighthouse and four separate boating areas: one for the fishing boats, one for the special Howth 17-footers, anchorage and yacht club marina: lots of nice boats to look at! Enjoyed the Irish books at the apartment, especially the obits of famous Irish folk and the book of short stories written by women. This area has a lot to offer! Thank you!

Great location, beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were very happy with the location, the apartment itself and the surroundings. It is really easy to travel via the Dart train in and out to Dublin and many other locations. While we didn't meet directly Veronica was available to us and left us some of the basics that allowed us to have breakfast and coffee and tea. Howth is beautiful and the apartment was clean, comfortable and accessible to everything. We had a great stay, found the beds comfy and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Lots of good restaurants, walking trails, shopping, etc. Thanks Veronica we would love to come back again.

nice, clean, great location

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay--very nice! The condo was quiet, except when a neighbor snored all night... but that can't be helped! It would be nice to have a little milk pitcher and sugar bowl. And the patio table is very wobbly, so we could not use it. I think a new one is needed. But these are minor points: my advice is to stay. You'll be very happy at the St Lawrence.

Owner's Response: HI Jennifer, Many thanks for your comments. I have taken on board your comments. We do have a little sugar bowl but a small milk jug would be a good idea. Now that the Irish summer has finally arrived new furniture for the balcony is in order. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hopefully you will come back to visit in near future. All the best. Veronica
