It was not a planned visit but worth the time and money spent. Visit inside the castle is permitted only with an accompanied tour guide. So know the tour time in advance so that u can avoid the waiting.

a train northbound is the best way to get there unless more than 4 people it may be worth getting a taxi. Malahide is a nice place to spent an hour or two some nice pubs for a coffee
