Established in 1971 with a commitment to source and serve the best fish and shellfish that Ireland has to offer, Aidan and Joan MacManus have earned an international reputation for fresh seafood in their harbour-side restaurant in the picturesque fishing village of Howth. It is their passion and commitment that drove The King Sitric to an international reputation for excellent seafood.

Through the years The King Sitric has won many accolades and countless awards for its high standards.

In 2000 the old harbour masters house which houses the King Sitric was extensively renovated and the dining room was moved up to the first floor where it commands sweeping views into Balscadden Bay and across the harbour from its large windows. Eight nautically decorated guest bedrooms were added, all with stunning sea views.

Fresh fish landed daily on Howth Pier, oysters and mussels from the West, lobster caught by our own fishermen in Balscadden Bay are among our specialities. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the wine cellar while choosing your wine from our outstanding wine list.

Enjoy a gentle stroll on the Pier before breakfast or a more energetic hike on the unspoilt Cliff Path and the trails of Howth Head. For business, shopping or sightseeing, Dublin City is only 25 minutes by Dart.
