Great castle to visit in Ireland. Tour is so full of history and stories of the past. The grounds where the castle sits is dog friendly. Very good gift shop on the grounds.

Malahide Castle and Gardens is very easy to get to-just a quick trip up the coast via the DART-but well worth the time. The botanical gardens are fantastic-the 300-year-old Cedar of Lebanon is worth the trip in itself-and the castle tour is very interesting. I was very glad I decided to make this short trip.

My sister and I visited Malahide Castle last month. First of all, I must say it's one of the most beautiful castles I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot) but the actual attraction was that both of us could feel the spirit of Puck, one of the castle ghosts. He breathed in our necks. Now, being back home, I've... More

We are fortunate enough to live a few minutes walk from this fabulous castle and often walk around the demesne. There is also a brilliant playground in the castle demesne which our children have enjoyed over the years. However, this was our first tour of the castle for a few years and we were pleased to see that since our... More

The most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever crossed paths with in decades of travelling. Pictures are allowed (no flash). Would visit the castle again. Also took the short walk down to the village. Lots of restaurants around to spoil you, and close to the train and bus routes.
