Highly recommend spending at least 4hours here to do the castle tour, explore the beautiful gardens and enjoy the shop and cafe.

Hi, Wanted to say how much myself, and my hubbie and our 3 kids enjoyed the tour of the castle @ 2pm yesterday. The guide was excellent, he loves his job and it makes such a difference. . It was the best tour we have been on. Great value for money, even got to the gardens in between showers. Well... More

The castle and grounds are very impressive. There are large gardens and a beautiful castle. However, especially for the ladies, there is a large boutique store. My wife enjoyed her shopping here. There is also a great cafeteria style dining area with a great selection of Irish food.

The park and gardens are very lovely. The castle has several rooms to visit on the tour, with several styles of furniture on display. The tour was interesting but went on too long. Children would be bored on the tour. It was within easy walking distance if staying in Malahide or coming in on the train.

We did this as a last minute thing, which I'm so glad that we did. We arrived at the castle just as they opened so we were on the first tour. The tour was extremely informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. We unfortunately only had a limited amount of time because we really hadn't plan on visiting the castle... More

We stopped in on our drive from Dublin to Balbriggan and were really impressed. We didn't realize the variety of things that were available here-the castle, the botanical gardens, bike rentals etc. The tour group we were in was quite large and there were some children who were too young. The tour guide did her best by offering the parents... More

Enjoyed this tour, beautiful grounds nice palace inside a stone castle. The guide was informative however he spent too much time on the first room talking and then rushed everyone thought the upper floor tour so he could end on time....I would have been interested in exploring the bedrooms a little more..... Overall it was still good.

The Castle Grounds are immaculate and the Walled Gardens is a real treat not to be missed. There are playgrounds and activities for families with small children too and a fabulous shop to mooch around.

We didn't examine the castle in detail but it looked nice. The appeal to my family was the brilliant play ground and the lovely gardens. The play ground is well equipped and very well kept. It is nestled just outside a lovely wooded area and close to the lovely Avoca Cafe.
