“Worth the Walk”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

There is an admission charge to go in on a scheduled tour. But you don't have to pay if you only want to walk around and take some photos. We walked from the Malahide Grand Hotel and it was only 15-20 minutes. There is a nice area for restrooms and souvenirs and, of course, to sign up/pay for a tour. The grounds are really nice with families enjoying the lawn and sunshine. There are several interesting ruins and an interesting graveyard with really ancient headstones.

“Castle was terrific!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed the brief tour of the castle! Learned some history, loved walking the walled gardens outside, the gift shop was enjoyed, the peacock strolling the grounds and gift shop was entertaining! We spent about 2-2.5 hours here and am glad we did! There are a couple areas within the castle that are only stairs, no lift. Very worthwhile afternoon!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Malahide Castle is very well kept and most of the furnishings were from the time the castle was in use. One could see
how a great castle was built and all of its amenities. We
found the tour guide very knowledgeable.
