“Beautiful castle ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We.had some friends visiting us from the UK and decided to take them some of our historic places. And let me tell a visit to Malahide Castel is a must!
They offer great personalised tours and the grounds on.a sunny day are just stunning. Topped up with lunch at avoca.and a walk to malahide beach.
Our friends were very impressed!

“Beautiful Irish castle”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Malahide is one of the nicest castles I've seen. Both clasical and romantic, a small but very compact and enchanting castle with a splendid garden - a relaxing half a day visit, 30 minutes from Dublin by DART railway.
The village is also worth a visit.

“Must see Irish history!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

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!

“Wonderful guide, interesting history!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

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

“Beautiful and a Must See”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

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.
