Howth, Dublin,

Don't miss all the great entertainment – not mention great food – at this fantastic festival by the sea.

With a huge range of restaurants, pubs, cafes and retailers offering a vast array of food – much of it produced on Howth's doorstep – it's no wonder this pretty seaside town has become synonymous with great eating. Why not check it out for yourself at the Dublin Bay Prawn Festival, one of Ireland's largest food events?

Known for its fantastic food village, cultural, historical and adventure activities, and, of course, its idyllic setting on the harbour, it's the place to go to find the freshest seafood. The award-winning restaurants lining the waterfront are all the more reason to take the short train journey from Dublin city centre for this great event.

Soak up the sun and the seaside festival atmosphere, which is set to include cookery demos from local and celebrity chefs, fish filleting and net mending masterclasses from the fishmongers and fishermen, videos and storyboards outlining the history of Howth and its fishing traditions, and of course some shanties and storytelling along the way.

Don't miss it.
