Howth, just 10 km from Dublin city centre is the premier fishing port on Ireland’s east coast.
Renowned for its seafood, Howth has built up a large number of top class seafood restaurants over the past few years. In the Oar House local chef John Aungier joined forces with fishmonger Sean Doran, Dorans on the Pier, to create this award winning restaurant.
The Oar House, now in its 11th year, is a haunt for the locals and a hugely popular ‘must see’ for visitors. Needless to say its fish offerings are wide and varied with an emphasis on what has been landed on the day.
We source most of our fish from the trawlers you see outside our window. Indeed our own trawler “Celtic Fisher” skippered by Sean’s brother Padraig is our primary supplier of the famous Dublin Bay Prawns and most of the whitefish served here. Indeed the specials board is effectively a list of fish landed in Howth that morning!
So if you like atmosphere and great seafood look no further than the Oar House.
We look forward to welcoming you to Howth Pier soon!
