What You Can Expect

Dublin Bay and Malahide Castle Half-Day Tour

Malahide Castle and Howth Harbor, Ireland

Choose a morning or afternoon trip and meet your coach in central Dublin for the ride to Malahide Castle. Upon arrival, head to the castle for an included 45-minute tour of the four main reception rooms and bedrooms. Learn about the history of the Talbot family, who resided in the castle for 800 years, and admire lovely period furniture and an extensive collection of paintings on loan from the National Gallery of Ireland. Following the tour, take some time to have a cup of tea (own expense) and explore the grounds and gardens of the 260-acre estate.
Your next stop is the picturesque coastal village of Howth. Enjoy sweeping views of Dublin Bay – spotted with colorful fishing boats – and watch the native seals that cluster around Howth Pier. Then head into town to experience small-town Irish life and view more impressive Viking-Era monuments.
Your coach returns to central Dublin by mid-afternoon or evening, depending on start time.

Everything was excellent except one thing - our guide/driver talked all the way. He was enthusiast and tried to inform us about everything and we appreciate it, but sometimes passengers need some silent minutes to observe surroundings. All other was at its best.
