This is the website of the Howth voluntary unit. Howth is just one of 54 Coast Guard Coastal Units around the coast of the Republic of Ireland crewed by a total of 950 male and female volunteers. All Units are operated totally by local crews (including Howth) who give freely of their valuable time and effort to the Coast Guard, local community and ‘those in peril on the sea’, cliffs and coasts of Ireland.
