We were lucky enough to get in on the first tour on a Monday so it ended up that it was a private tour for my husband and I. Our tour guide was Darina, I believe, and she was very candid, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the castle and the Talbots that inhabited it for 8 centuries. The grounds were beautiful... More

I went here last sunday 7th of february 2016. The tour is good, it consists of the three floors of the castle. The tour guide tells you all about the history of the castle and the people who lived there. The gardens are nice to walk around and the cafe/shop is nice too. I would recommend this place to everyone.

I visited Malahide castle during a layover on a flight to Paris. It's about 10 minutes from the airport with decent shopping and a few different options for food. The castle itself is charming and has very nice grounds. Lots of families and many people waking their pets or running. There is also a playground here and a soccer field.... More

I have been to Malahide twice now over the years -always with visitors and have been lucky to do so! It's one of those things that you just don't do when you live near by so someone else coming helps you go. It's a great castle with fascinating history and really good restoration/decorated rooms with original things. A good thing... More

My wife wanted to see a castle. She's wanted to see one for years. Well she got to spend a week in the Castle Hotel, she got to see the Dublin Castle, she got to see the castle in Limerick. On our last day in Ireland I took her to the Malahide Castle. WOW! From the bus stop it was... More

The castle belongs to the Talbot family till 1960 or 1970 last century. Now it is a museum. Castle is not very big but the guide tour is very interesting. There is a nice garden belongs to castle. It is not far from Malahide DART station.

Couldn't do the tourist bus trip because it was out of season and not a Friday or Saturday, so my wife and I made an effort to get there (bus there, number 42, 45 minute journey, DART train back, 30 minutes, and really so much more comfortable). Really pleased we did make the effort because the entire time there was... More

I frequently run and walk in Malahide Castle and find it great for avoiding boredom while running & keeping away from the traffic of the roads. A full lap of the outer edges of the park is just over 4kms but you can make a solid 5 if you venture into the middle and then back to your outer track.

Malahide Castle is well worth a visit, even if it is a bit on the small side, there is still lots to see. The guided tours are not rushed and full of useful information. Did you know they have Mosquito's in Malahide thanks to the former owners the Talbots. Apperently they imported some with exotic plants but there is no... More

We were glad we added this to our itinerary. It was a great tour and we really enjoyed all the details in the home. Definitely a must stop destination in Ireland.
