Create an itinerary including Malahide Castle
Home to the same family for nearly eight centuries, Malahide Castle sits just a few minutes north of the capital city, easily accessible by car or public bus. The estate dates back to the 12th century, when Richard Talbot (a knight serving King Henry II) received these lands as part of a royal grant. Talbot's descendants lived here until 1976, expanding and modifying the original structure over the centuries. Take a guided tour to see the interior of the castle, noted for its Talbot family portraits and decorative carvings. The surrounding parkland also contains several popular attractions, including a museum housing a large collection of antique dolls and toys.

  • It is such a nice place accessible to the public, if you want to spend 8€ you have access to the gardens which are lovely and educational. It is family friendly with lots of space for children to explore and run around. The cafe and shop offer ample seating and delicious food/ beverages. Toilets are clean. Staff is very friendly! Highly recommend it
  • It is a lovely area to visit even if you don't get tickets to go into the castle and gardens. You can come for a casual weekend walk as well. The castle is lovely, a little small compared to what I expected. The tour guide we had, Martin (sorry if I got the name wrong) he, was amazing. He told us all about the ghost stories, and his tour was entertaining as much as it was educating. Also ticket pricing; Adult €14.00 Child €6.50 Senior/Student €9.00
