This was a great tour. Loved Malahide and also the drive to Howth. Our guide Ciaran was knowledgeable. The scenery was awesome along the coast road to Howth and we really enjoyed our time in Howth. I would recommend Dodublin tours and this guide. Would like more choices in the visit choice as it was my daughter and myself on our trip to Ireland
Howth and castle tour

We took this tour with Chris and he was wonderful. He told us many facts about Dublin on our way to the castle and then on to Howth. Very knowledgeable and made it a fun tour. His recommendation of O'Connells to eat was the best. I've never had a better fish chowder anywhere in the world. Thank you!
A completely fine experience

Good tour. I think 4 hours would be enough. 5 hours little bit too long we had very good knowledgeable driver he talk all the time, lots of history the Malahide castle was ok.Didn't care much for fishing village. Good money value.

Let me start by saying how wonderful our guide, Mike was. Such a sweet man. Knowledgable, funny, and kind! At the start of the tour, he asked if anyone had any time constraints he should know about. We so appreciated this, as we had a reservation for tea that may have posed a conflict without Mike's help. He originally said he would try to take a more convenient approach into town so that he could drop us closer to our restaurant, but about half-way into the tour he told us that he would be dropping us off at the door of our destination! You really can't ask for better service than that - five stars go to Mike. The tour itself was also lovely. We enjoyed the drive to Malahide Castle, as well as the tour. The town of Howth was really nothing to write home about thus the four star rating instead of five, but I was glad to have gotten a glimpse of a seal.

This was great because we got to see the inside of the castle. It is truly one of the most beautiful castles in all of Ireland and well worth the visit.

This tour was nice. I enjoyed the castle and the marina in Howth afterward. We had time to walk around in Howth and have a nice lunch. I think I would have liked more time at the Malahide Castle to tour the gardens. There was also some confusion about the fact that our tickets to the castle did not include the gardens and there wasn't really enough time to go explore the grounds after the castle tour. We did this tour our second day in Dublin and it was a nice tour to start off with a shorter tour with a castle and marina in the same trip.

Malahide Castle was very pretty but the real gem was Howth. We had the best seafood of our lives here and we've been to Boston and San Fran. Definitely worth the visit!

Had an amazing time, felt safe and secure the whole time while also having a blast. Great for kids, families, and solo travellers alike. Would highly recommend going into the butterfly pavilion near the castle if you have time you get in for free w your sticker from this tour and the town of Howth is sooo gorgeous and fun.

The visited locations were not very impressive - the tour of Malahide castle is actually very short and we could stay in Howt only 2 hours just enough time to eat some sea food at a local restaurant. On the other hand, the DoDublin guide Michael was very informative and funny, a real entertainer - just to prove that people always make the difference.
