Howth Head Peninsula on our webcam has clearly seen peaks of the rocks. This part of the coast is considered one of the most beautiful in the Dublin bay. The most inaccessible places of the peninsula can be reached only on foot. The path is very complicated — leads among the rocks. There is a small peatbog in this region, called the Froggy because of the amphibians living there.


The most important sight of Howth in our live broadcast is the Laurence dynasty castle, built in 1564, was serving as the house of the count's family and military fortification.

In the 19th century, rich land was brought here - a good soil for the formation of parks with azaleas and rhododendrons. Currently, the castle is a private property.
