Ireland’s Eye is a small secluded island just off the coast from Howth, north of Dublin City. Littered with history, you can still find the remains of a 6th century monastery, an 8th century church and a 19th century a Martello Tower. The island, with it’s with a dramatic cliff-face (including a free-standing rock formation known as the Stack) is now a bird sanctuary with guillemots, terns, gannets, razorbills, cormorants and puffins nesting around the shore.
