Description

Unlock the wonders of Malahide Castle during a guided tour of the stronghold constructed by the Talbot family in 1174. Peer inside mediaeval bedrooms and marvel at fine art on loan from the National Gallery of Ireland, and then step outside to wander the aromatic botanical gardens at your leisure.

Arrive at Malahide Castle early in the day to make the most of your time at this esteemed historical site. Your ticket includes a guided tour of the castle's meticulously preserved interior, inviting you to peer inside opulent reception rooms and intimate living spaces that call to mind the Ireland of long ago.

During the course of the tour, your guide regales you with tales of Richard Talbot, who was rewarded with this plot for his gallant service during the Anglo-Norman conquest of Ireland. See artefacts belonging to members of the Talbot family, also known as the the Earls of Shrewsbury, and admire artwork on loan from the National Gallery of Ireland.

Following the tour, step outside and take as much time as you like to wander the estate's extensive gardens. Your ticket provides you with access to the Botanical Walled Garden, which once served as a kitchen garden and has been transformed into a stunning series of secret gardens, as well as 7 glass greenhouses brimming with rare and endemic species.
