Highly recommend this visit! The kids had an excellent time at the playground, playing cricket, meandering through the forest paths, and running freely across the perfect lawn. There is something of interest for all age groups. I would return.

The gardens are gorgeous. The tour of the Castle is well worth the time and the cost. I suggest that you plan at least 3-4 hours.

Did the Malahide Castle & North Coast Half-Day Tour as it was my last full day in Ireland and just wanted a quick trip. The castle tour wasn't great, but it was bad either. The castle was nice to visit, however, I think if offered,...More

If I remember correctly access to the garden and green house was included in the 12,50 for an adult and they also had family tickets. There is a larger park around the castle which is accessible without charge. I don't know... More
