The castle and grounds are very well kept, with a large parking lot for visitors. The castle and grounds could very easily take a good chunk of the day. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of including children in the tour by giving them tasks (i.e. "Find all the lions in this room.") while she was presenting.

Although the websites for the Dublin Sightseeing's Coast and Castle tour doesn't say so, visitors in wheelchairs can get to the ground floor (including all the alcoves displaying historical information) and, via a modern elevator, the first floor! Some of the passageways are a bit tight, but my power wheelchair was able to make it through (longer scooters might have... More

A beautifully kept castle that is the oldest castle in Ireland used as a private home in continuous use for over 800 years.! Really a lovely experience, beautiful grounds and great tour guides.

The demesne is beautiful. We were there on a gorgeous, sunny day. I only wish there were more rooms to explore. It's amazing that the property stayed in the same family for over 800 years. It's was a little odd to have a guide who was another EU country giving the tour.

The castle itself is not an impressive place but the whole estate is worth visiting. It has an expansive garden estate around it and beautiful.

Very nice spot for families, you could easily spend the whole day here (weather permitting). Very nice playground suitable for all ages, zip wires, big climbing ropes, huge slides, sand pits, etc. We didn't do the guided tour but im told it's definitely worthwhile, the castle and gardens are immaculately preened and very clean, the visitors centre and information desk...

Great afternoon. The tour of the castle was wonderful and the visit to Howth was unique. Our guide, Eoin was very informative and entertaining.
