We visited Malahide Castle today and had an excellent tour of the castle given by Aidan, one of the guides. He was very knowledgeable about the castle and its history, and it was a treat listening to him.

We took the bus to Malahide Castle and Gardens from Dublin on our vacation. The grades are beautiful and are great for walking. Check out the Peach House, Victoria House, and botanic gardens. The staff guiding the tour of the castle are great - very entertaining. It's great and filled with lots of history.

My teenage son, 8 yr old daughter, wife and myself visited the castle today, 29 July 2015. We got the 'Toots' train up to the castle which was a good laugh and gave us some discount on the visit there. Our guide for the castle was Aidan, who was fantastic and really knew his stuff. From the Norman conquest right... More

Great Castle not to far from Dublin and the airport. Large garden, entrance fee for part of the gardens and inside the Castle. Great photo objects. Large parking.

Malahide castle and the Malahide village are nice for a relaxing day out. The castle tour is interesting and the gardens are beautiful for a relaxing lunch on the grass.

This is a must see. It is incredible and the only issue I had was you can't use a flash so some of the pictures were very dark. The child's nursery and gardens were exceptional. There is an Avoca self serve on site so food is available and tasty.
