Visited Malahide Castle on my last visit to Ireland. Was absolutely blown away at how beautifully maintained it was. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and excited to share what she knew. The grounds were well kept. Really enjoyed my visit and learning the history behind Malahide.

This park has it all! Extensive walkways, excellent playground, beautiful coffee shop, great outdoors shop and exercise equipment. Not to mention a beautiful castle and museum. The park has various football pitches, toilets and ample parking! Great family day out!

We love going to the Castle, it is a wonderful place to visit. Maybe for have a picnic during the summer, or lunch at the cafe if its raining, a quick visit to the playground or just for a nice walk! It is magical! And for sure Malahide's jewel.

Hubby and I were on a short holiday to Dublin. We decided to spend a day out of the city and we chose Malahide castle and gardens. We used the Dart from Tara Street to Malahide which took 30 minutes and only cost 6 euros each for a return ticket. The castle is only a 10 minute walk away. Walking... More

Easy access to the castle via train from Dublin. Once there, we had a lovely walk around the gardens and a nice free guided tour of the castle. There was a nice gift shop and cafe on the grounds, which was nice since it was kind of chilly!

This was a very special and memorable occasion. We brought our two young children (2 & 4) who were amazed by the characters they met, especially the princess! The way that each family is called in to see Santa individually is excellent as the children do not get stressed or bored as there were plenty of toys for them to... More

Took the turnoff to the castle and could not believe how beautiful it was. The grounds are magnificent and made a lovely walk- I will be back for a run at some stage as it is just a gorgeous venue! The Avoca cafe and shop would be great for a quick bite or look around even if you did not... More

Malahide Castle is an amazing piece of Irish history. Lovingly preserved with great exhibits. Gardens worth an exploration. Easy access from downtown Dublin via public bus (just ask the driver to let you off at Malahide) or DART. House tour guide was informative and fun. Obviously enjoyed her job and talking with international tourists who had plenty of questions. Definitely... More

Recently re-open, this historic landmark on Dublin’s north coast it's easy to get buy bus or Dart. There are Tour guides inside the castle about the history of the Talbot Family and the facinating legacy they have left behind. The gardens are incredible. The Lord Milo Talbot's Walled Garden, with over 5000 species of plants including exotic specimens transported by... More
