Ivan’s Oyster Bar & Grill, Howth, Ireland

image

If you’re a fish and seafood lover and happen to visit Dublin, than a quick ride to Howth is a must! It only takes a few minute by train to reach this small fishermen’s town and the harbour with its restaurant is just next to the station: thus, no real effort is needed to get there! ;)

Following a recommendation of Food Snob’s global gourmet intelligence network we chose Ivan’s Oyster bar for our lunch and weren’t disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed and one feels instantly welcomed and at ease in this modern, yet warm architecture.

And if you like fish and seafood you won’t be disappointed. Here’s our lunch.

image
Delicious rye bread and white bread with raisins

image
Ivan’s chowder. Hearty with big delicious bits of fish, but also quite heavy loaded with cream.

image
Crabcakes were nicely packed with meat, but also with a quite greasy crust after being deep-fried

image
Irish mussels in white wine

image
Our wine – an intense Chardonnay with quite some personality – not a fruit bomb. Their Wine list offers quite some interesting choices.

image
Finally some Rock Oysters

image
They were good, but I still believe the ones at the Temple Bar Food Market were better!

image
Modern, yet welcoming and comfy! It was an enjoyable meal with fair pricing and definitely a nice recommendation!

image
The exaggerated consumption of rye bread with butter cried for a walk around the area.

Howth Harbour West Pier

image
I guess they re for sale…

image
Several trail options take you around the howth peninsula.

image
It’s definitely worth to take the walk …

… although it wasn’t as comfy outside as it was inside Ivan’s ;)
