Great day out for the whole family. Great forest walk followed by adventure playground for the kids. The visitor centre has one of the best food spreads that we have ever seen at this type of venue or anywhere else. Salads a must!

Castle was well maintained, a very interesting history which was fabulously brought to life by our guide Aidan. Very knowledgeable, and easy to listen and learn. Gardens looked beautiful but weather not grea but would come back in the summer.

We took the tour around the castle after visiting the grounds and the shop. We had a lovely guide in Darina who was very informative and patient with our questions. This place is fascinating and takes you back in time to the start of the Talbot family era up to the present day. This place is definitely worth a visit.

Have been to the castle and grounds many times but never did the castle tour. Very enjoyable and informative! Had my 8yr old with me and he loved it too. The guide, Bronwyn, was very knowledgable and made it a fun and interesting experience for everyone! Would definitely recommend it if visiting Malahide.

We paid a flying visit to the castle to finish our weekend in Dublin and really enjoyed it. The lady on the visitor centre desk on Sunday afternoon was very helpful and booked a taxi for us to go the airport as we left. The castle itself is superb, oozing history and the estate looked amazing I felt it was... More

I loved this castle, while touristy of course, I found everything about it very interesting from the architecture to the furniture, some of which is over a thousand years old! Definitely worth a visit here as well as the rest of Malahide.

Malahide Castle and gardens were spectacular. They are a quick 5 minutes walk from town and 10 minutes from the marina. The plants, lawns and trees are extremely pretty and the castle itself will transport you to another time, absolutely lovely.
