The castle master takes you on a lovely tour of the castle. He really brings it to life and tells you about the people who lived there, their times and why they built the way they did.

Although it was recently restored, Malahide Castle failed to impress us. It is surely a nice place to visit and it offers a nice walk in the gardens and park. But it was not really special. We were curious about the walled garden and again it was nice but it could have been so much more spectacular. The castle can... More

A really lovely tranquil place to walk, to get away from the hustle and bustle surrounding areas. Well worth a visit. Plenty of open space and beautiful trees. Space for a picnic.

We took a day trip from Dublin to Malahide (with city-sightseeing.com) to tour Malahide Castle, and explore the coast of Dublin. The tour guide was delightful and entertaining. I loved the stories about the Castle, too. Very interesting!
