Well worth the trip to Malahide and Howth Village. I highly recommend a guided tour of the castle and then do your own walk around on the castle grounds and garden. Beautiful.
Spare yourself the hassle and expense of driving yourself around Ireland on a convenient Dublin Bay tour that’s perfect for lovers of natural landscapes. Explore the 12th-century Malahide Castle and its famous gardens, wander the quaint village of Howth, and enjoy sweeping countryside vistas. Your local guide puts all of these views into context and provides historical information you may otherwise have missed,
Leave downtown Dublin in a climate-controlled vehicle. As you travel through the countryside north of the city, your driver-guide explains the region’s history.
Your first stop is Malahide Castle, one of Ireland’s oldest castles. Richard Talbot, one of Henry II’s knights, first built Malahide during the 12th century, and it stayed in his family for almost 800 years.
After a tour of the interior, a stroll in the ornamental gardens, and a visit to the craft shop (and café, if you would like), you'll travel through picturesque Malahide village and along the rugged coast to the fishing port of Howth.
Explore the quaint streets and pretty harbor with its traditional fishing boats before heading up to Howth summit to savor sweeping views across Dublin Bay. Finally, you’ll return to your central Dublin starting point.

The driver was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour of the castle was great. The drive up the coast was very pretty.

Hi Pam, thanks for the great review! Glad you enjoyed your half day tour to Malahide Castle with Gerry. Kind regards, Christian
This is a well done tour. The castle is well preserved and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Then we had a seaside drive to the town of Howth. We had about 40 minutes to walk around or get something to eat. Really done well.
