Why Howth School of Fish?

Not only do Dorans have the best Fishmongers on the harbour, they are also owners of 3 fabulous Seafood Restaurants. Two of which are right on the harbour and beside the fishmongers directly on the harbour in Howth.

Really Happy Clientele

Howth School of Fish was a super learning experience, an authentic insight into the history and working of the Irish fishing industry and aquaculture. I highly recommend booking this event for family and friends. The three hour gathering flew by and we had a tasty chowder lunch prepared by the friendly staff. Sean Doran and Tracey Floyd were super hosts. Many thanks for a great day out.
