Malahide Castle is a sprawling estate with things to do for young and old. Much of the property is open and free but definitely take the guided tour, €12. The tour takes you through the castle which immerses you into its 800 year old history....More

Malahide Castle is a must for checking off a castle visit if you’re on a fast-paced schedule with ancestral spots as a priority, not typical tourist haunts. Lovely grounds which reflected the peak leaf-peeping season that made it more beautiful. Worth the trip.

This is a nice castle to walk through. Not too big but lots of history. People actually lived there until 1976 which was a surprise. It was owned by the same family for 800 years. The grounds are lovely and gardens a must to walk...More

To think that this castle belonged to the same family (Talbot) for 800 years. Absolutely a must to visit. I really enjoyed the butterfly house. This garden is must for any horticulturist.

800 years of history make the castle and grounds a must-see if you are in the Dublin area. The house is full of beautiful artifacts. Make sure you take an escorted tour of the castle to get the best perspective.

Yes you can, we didn’t buy a ticket for the castle, just for gardens, so one side of the castle you will definitely see, and the inner side (and more impressive views as to me) from the gardens you won’t, but it’s still... More

Yes, it states in the email that you can show the ticket on your phone. I did just that and all went smoothly.
