Ireland's Eye is a small picturesque Island of Howth on the northside of Dublin. It is a bird sanctuary, hosting many different species of seabirds, which makes it a place of great interest for nature lovers. The Island also has a long safe sandy beach, which is ideal for picnics, swimming and relaxing in the peace and quiet away from the mainland. The ruins of St. Nessans Church dating back to 700 AD and a Martello tower from the 19th century are also located there for all to explore.
A trip to Irelands Eye is ideal for youth groups, summer projects, birthday parties for children, walking clubs or indeed any groups. Children's groups are most welcome once they are supervised by their group leaders.
Evening trips are available by arrangement for corporate groups and walking clubs etc. Previous "work night out" groups availed of a half hour boat trip followed by food and drinks in one of Howths many bars and restaurants.
Fishing trips are available by arrangement also.
Bird watching trips are available for groups which includes a boat trip around the back of the Island with spectacular views of the sea stack, home to a colony of gannets and guillimots. There is a seal colony near by also.
