You have to check out the grounds!! Very nice and peaceful. The castle is not very large but not shabby either. There are many rooms to see but it is not tiring. We arrived there early, as usual, to avoid the bus loads that were sure to come. We got our tickets and were given our start time. Then first... More

We had just gotten to town and were looking for a place to eat and saw this place. The grounds are extensive and it seems everyone in town just goes there to enjoy the day. There were a couple Cricket matches going on and people hanging out having picnics and such. We took the tour of the Castle. It is... More

We had a great guide, Mary, who gave a very informative, humorous and animated tour. It's not a big castle but the history was very interesting. November probably the best time to visit the gardens (not much in bloom) but we could tell that there was quite a variety of plant life, many greenhouses and trees. The cafe and Avoca... More

a short walk from Malahide railway station you find this 268 acres garden with the castle. If you wish to see inside pay Euro 12 otherwise most can be seen for free. Beautiful castle.

We took the DART from Dublin to Malahide. It took about 30 minutes and it was extremely easy. The station is very cute and just a 15 minute stroll to the castle. You walk out to the main road and turn right, then just follow the signs with the big M. You can't miss it. The castle grounds are part... More

The guided tour was very informative and very well conducted. Overseas visitors are well catered for and the tour guides spoke many European languages. A fascinating insite into Irish life and 800 years of The Talbot Family.

The castle and grounds were beautiful. Our guide was entertaining and very informative. Interesting facts on background of the Talbot family and the rooms and furnishings. I am sure the gardens are beautiful in the summer in full bloom. Very extensive grounds with lots of room for walking.

Visited the castle with family at the weekend. We knew the gardens would be a wash out due to the weather and were OK with that. The guided tour was overfull to the point that we couldn't all get into the rooms. The guide seemed bored and basically just gave us the same splurge that is written on the website.... More
