Prawn Festival at Howth

Howth is one of the best tourist destinations in Dublin. It is surrounded with seafood restaurants that you really don't want to miss. Every year, they are organizing a Dublin Bay Prawn Festival. 

There are plenty of food stalls and fun activities. But before you get the chance to buy something to eat you need to exchange your euros to a money voucher. It is called Prawn Punts which is equivalent to 5 euros.  A food of your choice is 5 Prawn Punts per order.

Prawn curry, calamari and seafood pastry were very good. There were long ques on food stalls but that never stopped us to want those foods.

After filling up our tummies with delicious food, we watched the cookery demonstration of Chef Hazel of The Kitchen in the Castle Cookery School. She taught her audiences how to properly devein a prawn. Tricky but I got it. She said the technique is necessary to bring out the real taste of prawn and bitter after taste will be avoided.
