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!

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

An apartment worthy of its fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The spacious Howth apartment is located in a seaside suburb about a half hour from Dublin. "Suburb" may not be the best word to describe Howth. It is scenic with cliffs, two light houses, and nearly wild hills, plus a vibrant small fishing port with a tasty selection of restaurants, all just about half an hour from Dublin's city centre by train or bus. The two-bedroom apartment is equipped with a modern kitchen, two bathrooms, one en suite, and a small patio overlooking gardens in the rear of the building. The host, Veronica Fearon, was most gracious and immediately available by phone to help us work through problems with entry and operation of appliances. There was nothing serious about these problems. They were just minor glitches that we encountered while at the bottom of the learning curve. Whatever our confusion, Veronica was immediately available to patiently walk us through a solution. Best of all she had a nice bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit waiting for us as we walked in after a couple of days traveling across New England and then across the Atlantic. Thank you, Veronica, for a great time. Let me not forget to add that the apartment was equipped with a thorough operations manual, a selection of books, including a history of Howth, and all necessary supplies.

Very nice apartment, in the heart of Howth, a beautiful, historic fishing village.

  • 5 of 5

Located in Howth, and very close to the DART, that will take you to central Dublin. Really, the best of both worlds: stay somewhere quiet, on the coast, with easy access to the city. Great walking, boat excursions, cuisine, and last, but not least, stiff pours. You won't be disappointed.

great location! nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the St. Lawrence apartment. The location is fantastic, walking distance to DART train and walking distance to fabulous restaurants in Howth. Clean, modern and with parking included the apartment is perfect for a couple or a small family. Thank you Veronica for being so attentive to all our questions and concerns. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Comfortable and convenient location and cozy apartment.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the apartment itself was comfortable, convenient, and filled with everything you might need for your stay. We stayed comfortably as a family of four with two school aged daughters, and we had everything we needed. For example, there was already shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms, and plenty of large towels available in the hall closet. We enjoyed the bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge, and we had all of the spices and amenities needed for cooking in the kitchen. The balcony overlooking the apartment gardens was a beautiful addition, and the garden walls made us feel safe and secure as well as keeping any street noise out. Veronica's instructions for accessing the apartment and local transportation and restaurants made everything about our stay smooth and efficient. We took the DART (light rail) into Dublin numerous times throughout our stay, and it was easy and stress free because it was less than a minute's walk from the apartment. We enjoyed delicious food and a great atmopshere at a local pub (just a minute's walk from the apartment as well) called the Bloody Stream (one of Veronica's excellent recommendations), and we took a scenic walk up to the local Howth castle and hiking trails. I absolutely love this apartment, and my family absolutely loved our stay here. Veronica was professional, very helpful, and a pleasure to communicate with. When I return to Dublin, I will not look anywhere else. I will definitely be staying at this apartment again. It is well worth the short commute into Dublin to come back to such a lovely and cozy place to rest, especially for a young family or a group who wants the enjoyment of Dublin without the constant noise and energy. Veronica, we will be back again soon, and we loved your apartment. :)

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.
