Howth is the home of the Dublin Bay Prawn, this small orange crustacean is known by a few names, depending on who you ask: the Nephrop by scientists, Langoustine when sold whole in seafood restaurants, as Scampi when its tail meat is deep fried in breadcrumbs or simply a ‘prawn’ by the fishermen who catch it. Regardless it is, without doubt, one of the tastiest foods out there, a fact celebrated by this festival.
