Signature Turf Fires

When we say that The Abbey Tavern offers the warmest welcome in Howth, we’re not just talking about our friendly staff. Our signature turf fires are an integral part of the special atmosphere and ambience of The Abbey Tavern.

Turf has been part of our heritage on this island for centuries and during the long winter nights turf fires provided not only heat but also light for homes in Ireland. 

Families and neighbours would gather, and many stories and yarns were told sitting round the turf fire. 

This fine tradition continues here at The Abbey Tavern. Come and experience the unique pleasure of dining or catching up with friends beside one of our turf fires.
