Howth, Dublin, Ireland

Saturday morning I rode the DART to Howth, a seaside peninsula at the north-eastern edge of Dublin.

National Transport Museum

Because I'm interested in vehicles, my first destination in Howth was the National Transport Museum.
Unfortunately, despite a sign saying the museum opened at 10:00, it was closed when I arrived.
It didn't look like much from the outside.

Howth Castle

On my way to the Transport Museum, I walked past this castle.

Howth has a beautiful and bustling fishing port.

I'd never seen sailboats like these.
My brother is an ocean engineer, so I showed him this photo and asked him what they are.
He suggested they're a "gaff-rigged dinghy sloop" or "something like a Winkle Brig." Thanks, G!
