Aidan & Joan MacManus have earned an international reputation for fresh seafood & hospitality in their harbour-side restaurant in the picturesque fishing village of Howth.

Chef Patron Aidan MacManus cooks fresh fish which is caught by their own fishermen each morning.


The lobster is caught 50 metres from the dining room in the King Sitric at Balscadden Bay. Each morning, fisherman Joe Caulfield catches a selection of fresh seafood in his 20ft currach boat which informs that evening’s menu.

A little bit of history…

The King Sitric takes its name from King Sitric II, Norse King of Dublin in the 11th Century,
who had a close association with Howth and was the son-in-law of the famous Irish King, Brian Boru.

Lobster season is now in full swing so why not visit the idyllic village of Howth. With panoramic sea views, the King Sitric is only 20 minutes from Dublin Airport and 25 minutes by DART into Dublin.
