Grab a taste of the good life in Howth
Preparations are under way for the Dublin Bay Prawn Festival which kicks off in the traditional fishing village of Howth.
The event, now in its fifth year, takes place from April 24 to 26.
The three-day foodie festival is now one of the largest in Ireland.
With the emphasis on seafood, the festival will open on Friday with a Mystery Dine Around, involving a culinary tour of Howth's restaurants on a fixed-price menu.
Top chefs will be joined by local fishermen for cookery demonstrations and fish preparation sessions and all of the fishing village's restaurants will be on hand to showcase their own unique dishes.
As well as food, this year's programme includes musical sessions from traditional Sea Shanties, Howth Gospel Choir and Findlater theatre will host Phelim Drew's one-man show.
Pictured at the launch are prawn lover and North Dublin native Michele McGrath along with Lucy Leahy.
