Howth Harbour (1)

A longer walk out to the end of the pier at Howth than Skerries but you get rewarded by not one but two lighthouses. This is the older, no-longer active lighthouse with keepers' cottage attached, unpainted, but the stone is very clean and there is no graffiti, despite it being readily accessible. There are even window boxes on the windows of the cottage. A plaque dates this to 1817.
