Last week, when Nora and I were up in Howth filming one of our neighborhood guides, we happened upon the most magical scene. For all the times I’ve stood on the west pier in Howth, I’ve never seen anything like it. At least fifty sailboats, decked out with identical orange sails, dancing their way into the harbor. We both stood there mesmerized. The grey blue sky and the burnt orange sails just zig zagged, one by one, into the harbor. You can see a dreamy little video on my Instagram as well. Orange sails, mint sailboat, doesn’t get better. Ireland’s Eye is the island in the background. It seems to have burned in the last few weeks, that patch in the front is usually vibrant green.
I’m always telling you about Howth, here’s what to wear to a seaside coffee date, the best blooms to see in Howth, a family photo session in a Howth park, incredible panoramic views from the cliffs, a cruise from Howth to Dun Laoghaire, and golden hour in the harbor.
