The Summit Inn is a unique pub where all ages meet together to enjoy a pint, a snack and relax & watch the world go by. There is a good mix of both local and visitor clientele all struck by the timeless ambience that is The Summit. The Summit has without question the finest view from any pub in Ireland overlooking as it does the magical Irelands Eye and Lambay Islands off Howth harbour and further north the Mountains of Mourne in lovely county Down. With a well appointed and spacious seating area out front where one can drink or dine the feeling is one of freedom and the views simply breathtaking. Sunny days are made for this! Inside and the pub doesnt disappoint. The bar is traditional and cosy with a turf fire. The pub grub is excellent and the perfect accompaniment to a few drinks. The menu is select but caters for all tastes. Fresh, natural ingredients including fresh fish are the order of the day. Prices are reasonable and the kitchen takes last orders at 9.30pm. The Summit Inn as its name suggests is located at the Summit of Howth Hill. It was the last stop on the old GNR Howth tram which meandered its way from Howth train station at the foot of the hill up the hill to the summit. Sadly the tram is no more as it shut down in the early 60s although its track (opposite the pub) is still used today and is the quickest way on foot from the summit to the village. Tram or no tram, a visit to The Summit as it is affectionately known is a must for all visitors to Howth - some locals also consider it a must on a daily basis! The inn was originally built in the 19th century as a thatched cottage and has been in the Gaffney family for generations. Come on Up!

Usual brilliant spicy chicken wings. Blue cheese sauce a little runny. Waitress happy to tell the chef.

Very disappointed with the food here, has really gone downhill. 4 of us went for lunch and won't be returning. One of us ordered the half roast chicken which was completely dried out and tasteless. The chicken wings were greasy with very little sauce and the chips just tasted like dirty chip oil. The garlic bread and deep fried Brie were nice. Mabey we caught them on an off day but it could be so much better

After a lovely walk along the cliff-face, we decided to pop in for a bite & some refreshments. The staff were exceptionally friendly, fast & efficient. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant, even for a Thurs night ;)

I visited The Summit Inn for Mothers day with my family, so as expected it was very busy but a wonderful atmosphere. Even though staff were very busy they were still attentive and helpful. The menu was a little limited, although you will no doubt find something on it that you will eat. We weren't waiting long on our order, we had their famous hot & spicy chicken wings and drumsticks which were very hot! but delicious, homemade soup and brie wedges were fab also. The nachos were o.k, it said they came with cheese sauce but they didn't, just melted cheese which left the nachos quite dry underneath. Main courses of scampi, vegetable wrap and chicken ciabatta were also nice, large portions, only complaint is that the ciabatta was a little soggy. Had ferrero roche cheesecake for desert which was gorgeous. I truly enjoyed my day and will definitely be returning again.:)

I had half a chichen with mash. (The menu says it comes with chips, but it was no bother to change to mash) Friend had scampi & chips, other friend has sirloin steak & chips. We all enjoyed our food sitting outside in the sunshine. The place was very busy, but service was excellent.

lovely place for a few drinks and nice grub. Good value. Love the spicy wings and the Chicken/Beef Quesidellas - beer garden for the summer and log fires during the winter.

A really quaint little pub,tht serves a good selection, despite being pub grubbs. Really tasty HUGE portions of food tht u might consider sharing just so that you can savour a gd mix of everythg!! I'd recommend the chicken wings, the cod n' chips and chowder. The chips were done fabulously. I'm a sucker for soft thick chips and they achieved nirvahna in tht sense =) Abt the cod, the batter is light and not greasy, the only minor issue was the tail end of the cod bein slimy and scales on the fish. Sorry for bursting the bubble! But a lovely place for a long afternoon lunch.Will return..buah hahaha!

living in howth, the summit is a regular place for lunch! Its not the cheapest but its always nice! The wings are really nice and chowder and wedges is the best hangover cure!! The service is never the best but the food more than makes up for it!! only thing I wouldn't recommend would be the nachos or the desserts!

Dropped in for a quick bite. Service was slow despite it not being busy. Soup was good and my pal was impressed as she had not been before. Like this place but don't let yourselves down on the service please.
