  • Seal

    This grey seal was swimming around the rocks by the lighthouse. He hung around for ages looking at people looking at him. He was just being really elusive about being photographed.... now you see him... now you dont!

    He is there!!!

    Ireland's Eye - get a boat!

    by orlikins Written Jan 24, 2007

    It looks amazing from Howth harbour. When you get there, you will see lots of beautiful seals and wonderful nature - so if you're into photography, you will love this.

    We sat there and admired the scenery and listened to birds' singing. It was a sunny, but windy day but no rain.

    IRELANDS EYE

    Just 1.6km from the shore at Howth is Irelands Eye which is a bird sanctuary. You can get ferries out to the island from Howth although I didn't have time to do that.

    We watched local fishermen mending their nets on the quayside. This is a busy and thriving fishing town and there are LOTS of fresh fish shops, a couple of fish restaurants and a chippy.

    There are times when the sea is treacherous and these guys do a fantastic job saving the lives of others.

    Interesting rock formations

    Down by the pier, I noticed these interesting rock formations at Howth. It's a mere taste of what I imagine the west coast of Ireland to look like.
