Established by local fisherman Sean Doran, whose family have been in the fish business in Howth for 60 years, this new marine focused excursion is sure to delight family members of all ages. This fun educational experience consists of talks on fishing vessels, how they fish and what species they catch in Irish coastal waters. Hear from real fishermen as they tell stories from the trawlers in action battling Irish weather & learn about fish stocks and sustainability. Then experience some fun hands-on activities such as rope tying, and shucking oysters, and enjoy a delicious seafood lunch in our restaurant overlooking the pier. This excursion is available for a 2 hour, half day or full day session and some options include a boat trip around Ireland’s eye where guests will hear about local shipwrecks and the history of Grace O’Malley, the pirate queen. Located on the West Pier in Howth, facing out to Ireland’s eye and Lambay Island, part of the excursion will take guests on a walk along the pier to look at real fishing trawlers and talk to active fishermen about their day to day lives. This special day out will be of interest to groups of friends, family, transition year and catering students, groups of chefs and hospitality staff and tourist groups with an interest in how a fishing harbour works and how best to prepare and eat fish that is sustainable in stocks.Specialist groups can avail of a tailored package to focus talks on elements including food, biodiversity or environmental/aquamarine. Timetables can be amended to fit with tour timetables and look out for our mini tours which will give a one-hour taster throughout the 2022 summer season for only €35 per person including a takeaway lunch. We encourage our guests to take the Dart, bus or bike to Howth to keep the air clean for our human and animal friends! Howth School of Fish is a short five minute walk from Howth Dart Station.
