The seaside fishing village of Howth was our next destination. It was pronounced "hove". The drive was scenic and quick, and we were once again blessed with decidedly non-Irish weather. It was partly sunny and not raining!
Harbour seals were popping their heads up.
Howth happens to be the home of the olympic committee for the Republic of Ireland.

We passed a Garda traffic stop on the way back into Dublin.
