The Oar House

Welcome to The Oar House Restaurant

Tuesday 13th, October



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 to create this award winning restaurant.

The restaurant, now in its 8th 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 emphases 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 !

We are open from lunchtime seven days a week until late and look forward to seeing you soon.

"but really fresh ingredients, a sympathetic hand and not too much added, and hey presto, a meal fit for a king. This was the case today, perfectly cooked scallops, succulent prawns, peppery rocket and the tang of the pumpkin all drizzled with a lime dressing. Wonderful." Gerard Carthy,
