We rented a car and set out to explore the areas near Dublin. Finding Malahide was a stroke of luck. Lovely grounds and gardens and the best guided tour I experienced during our 90 day European Vacation. Had a reasonably price excellent lunch at Castle Store and cafeteria.
When in Dublin take the time to visit this lovely historic site!

I visited Malahide castle and thought it was a neat historical site! Most of the objects are hundreds of years old and fascinating to look at. the best part is that they keep the rooms somewhat true to history with the furnishings...instead of just a museum.
Pros; excellent personal guides, excellent history, cool little castle, very informative, absolutely gorgeous landscape, well worth 12 euros.
Cons; you are in a pretty large group and can only go through with a guide, you don't really see much of the castle as they only have about 6 rooms open, they don't talk in detail about the famous ghosts

We took a tour of the Castle. It is lovely and the tour was informative and interesting. We had lunch at the Avoca Café on the grounds. Food was good with large servings although it is generic cafeteria style.

This Castle was a great place to visit. The grounds are beautiful and are free to use. There was some kind of family fun day the Sunday we were there. They also allowed dogs on the gounds. The Castle tour gave a lot of history and the restored rooms were beautiful and gave a good idea of the way the people lived. Very informative guide.Enjoyed the tour and will recommend this tour for anyone.

Nice place for picnic on a bright sunny day when it is not too windy. The castle is just okay, you can avoid it but the gardens are pretty nice to enjoy the sun.
