Your first stop after arriving in Howth by train or by bus will be Howth Pier probably. It's very nice here, you can watch the small fishing boats, the birds and the planes flying into Dublin airport ;-)
My favourite thing to do is to get a sandwich from one of the shops opposite the harbour and eat it at the end of the pier.
When I came here last, however, it was a bit windy - sunny though - and the waves were crashing over the pier. Not a perfect day for a picnic ;)
As everyone here has said, if you can withstand the crazy winds along the pier you'll find the lighthouse You may be a bit tired from fighting the winds - but the views are worth it.
If you can manage to walk to the end of the harbour wall without the gale force winds blowing you into the sea, then you will find the lighthouse!
