Dublin Malahide Castle Excursion Reviews

Near the seaside, dormitory town of Malahide stands a huge castle set in 250 acres of grounds. The castle's core dates from the 14th century but later additions, such as its rounded towers, have given it a classic fairy-tale appearance. Malahide Castle is one of Ireland's oldest castles and is now under the care of Dublin's tourism department.

On Thursday, June 13th, at 8:00 a.m. we arrived back in Dublin. The ship was overnighting in Dublin and you did not have to get off the ship until Friday morning. On Thursday morning we took another ship excursion - Malahide Castle and Irish Pub. This 4-hour tour included a drive through Malahide on Dublin Bay, a guided tour of the 11th Century Malahide Castle, and a stop at an 11th Century Irish tavern for an Irish coffee. This was an impressive castle containing outstanding period furnishings. The Abbey Tavern was in the seaside town of Howth, a beautiful fishing and sailing destination for summer retreats. This was an excellent excursion. Read Less
