Choosing the right day trip can make or break a vacation, the beautiful seaside village of Howth (pronounced Hoe-th) checks off all the boxes. Located just a short 30-minute train ride East of Dublin with trains running every 30 minutes in both directions makes this an easy and very convenient day trip.
A prerequisite to any trip requires a detailed account of places to see and things to do including pubs, breweries and restaurants. Prague is no exception, in fact with such a storied history we had many pages jammed full requiring weeks of exploration. In our case we had to squeeze everything we could into only 5 nights and there certainly would not be time for everything on our checklist. One name popped up on every list, Andrew Zimmern, Rick Steves and even the perpetual skeptic Anthony Bourdain (RIP) recommended it… that name was U Fleku! How can a brewery / restaurant that brews only dark beer make such an impression? Is it hype or hyperbole? I have to admit I was apprehensive, after all they did not even offer my favorite Czech beer, Pilsner Urquell.
