It is also a civil parish in the ancient barony of Coolock.

The only neighbouring district on land is Sutton. Howth is also home to one of the oldest occupied buildings in Ireland, Howth Castle.Howth has been a filming location for movies such as The Last of the High Kings, Boy Eats Girl and Sing Street.Location and accessHowth is located on the peninsula of Howth Head, which begins around 13km east-north-east of Dublin, on the north side of Dublin Bay.
