Malahide Castle is a fun and modern family attraction. The guided tour delves into the history of the Talbot family, who occupied the building from 1185 to 1973, and also offers an interpretation of the castle's ground floor. You'll have plenty of time to listen to the experienced guides as well as walk around the stunning, well-kept gardens. See the newly opened visitor centre in the ground's courtyard, with its interpretation and exhibition area which recants the story of the walled gardens as seen through the eyes of 'Lord Milo Talbot'.
As this tour makes its way to Malahide via the scenic coastal roads it will stop off at the little fishing village of Howth. Visitors can hop-off the bus and have a leisurely wander around the charming harbour area, bars and restaurants.
