Malahide Castle

Our friendly and informative guides are on hand to help you get the most out of your visit. Malahide Castle is a tower house which was owned by the Talbot family for almost 800 years.

The castle was built around the original tower house which dates back to the 12th century. The great hall was built in the 15th century. The furniture, the reception rooms, the entry hallway, the corner towers and the plasterwork were all added in the 18th century and reflect the highest standards of the time. Admire the portraits from the National Portrait Collection which adorn and decorate many walls of the Castle.

Malahide Walled Garden & West Lawn

The Walled Garden and West Lawn await exploration. You'll love the interactive exhibition in which you can share in the passion of the gardens created by Milo, the 7th Lord Talbot de Malahide. Marvel at the many species of plants he collected in Australasia flourishing here for you to enjoy.

Author's Review

This attraction really does come as a surprise. Dating back as far as King Johns Castle in Limerick, Malahide Castle made me feel that it's late owner Lord Mylo Talbot had just merely stepped out for while. This castle is a truly great example of historic architecture and it's gardens and parkland span a vast 250 acres. There is so much to do and see here that I would certainly advise a half day should be reserved for your visit if not a full day if your also planning on having lunch here. Having visited a number of castles in and around Ireland I would have too say that Malahide Castle is right up there as one of its best. I found the staff too be very friendly and they are always on hand to guide you round and point you in the right direction should you find yourself a bit disorientated.
