Excellent tour. Would have liked a bit more time to view grounds. Had to hurry to grab a bit oif food.
Bus driver/tour guide was very interesting, and accomodating. Trip to Howth was perfect.
Had a great afternoon spent driving through Dublin enroute to Malahide. Our driver-guide, whom I cannot remember her name!, was awesome! Very funny and enjoyable to listen to and interact with. Upon arrival at Malahide Castle, we were greeted by a guide who walked us through the castle, explaining the history and artifacts and pointing out little quirks here and there. We then had enough free time to explore the gardens on the grounds. Quite lovely. We then returned to the bus and were driven to Malahide in Dublin Bay.
My husband and I had read about a restaurant in Malahide and inquired about it to our driver-guide. She called them for us my phone refused to work that day and made a reservation for us. She then explained where to find the train station for our return to Dublin instead of getting an expensive taxi. The bus left us in Malahide as planned, lol! and we explored the town and pier until our dinner reservation time.
Overall, a fantastic short tour. We highly recommend it! I WISH I could remember our driver-guide's name as she was exceptional at her job and went above and beyond to accommodate us on our spontaneous special request. OH! And despite her refusal to accept, I did dump 10Euro into her tip basket!
excellent the only problem getting to the start from our accommodation
the driver and guide, Anne, was very kind
the castle is a beauty location
and the stop in Howth was beauty, too
Our tour guide was great! She even gave us the option to stay in Howth until the next tour came by later that afternoon! It was nice to see some of the Irish countryside.
This was a hoot laughed till I cried seen some stuff like in pink Floyd
My wife and I had a wonderful time on our trip. Would highly recommend it to anyone. What made this trip so special was our driver Eoim, he made everything g come alive and explained to us every place we traveled by. Incredible trip!
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.
Our tour guy was great, shared many of his Irish tunes. He was informative and friendly. The castle tour was well paced and lovely to see. Don't miss the gardens.
Lovely half day tour to Malahide Castle. Definitely worth seeing. Great tour guide and a very enjoyable trip.
This tour was brilliant.
I thank to our guide, a senior Irish citizen who was knowledgeable and very attentive with all of us.
Malahide castle was a pleasant surprise as I had never heard about it but found was important in history.
Visiting Malahide castle was worth its while but the anecdotes from our guide and his lookout throughout ireland 's political and social changes linked to his personal memories was a plus and a privilege.
This was a great way to fill up time between arriving to Dublin and checking into my hotel. The drive has some great views and the commentary from the guide was interesting and insightful.
I highly recommend this tour. The guide was Eoin who was fantastic. His knowledge of the area was very broad and deep. The Malahide Castle tour was very interesting and there was plenty of time to visit everything we wanted to visit. The tour of the Bay was just as interesting given Eoin's knowledge of the area. Don't miss out on this tour!
Our tour guide Eion was amazing! He added so much to the tour and, if you are looking for a half day tour, this is the ticket.
This is a half day tour, but it was absolutely fantastic, I literally booked this because I wanted to fill the time before going to a concert later in the day, I never expected to enjoy this tour so much , please note that this tour also takes you to the village of Howth , I misunderstood and thought that the tour only visits Howth from a distance and booked a separate tour to Howth but this is not necessary as we spent an housr and a half in Howth.
I took this tour with a friend (we're both women in our mid 20s) and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! Our tour guide Jeff was absolutely fantastic, knowledgable and having grown up in the area he had loads of stories and anecdotes to keep us all entertained. A highly recommended morning out and about!
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour to Malahide Castle. There were only a small number of people on it and the tour guide was very good. Upon arrival at the Castle, we were placed in the very capable and knowledgeable hands of Aiden, who showed us all around and gave a very thorough and interesting account about the history of this small piece of Irish History. The Castle itself and the beautiful gardens were kept in excellent condition. The Gift Shop had high quality souvenirs and I purchased quite a few for friends back home. After the tour, we headed to Howth where we were left to our own devices to have lunch, etc. I found a lovely Seafood Tapas Bar which was excellent. Then, on the return journey to Dublin we travelled through some very nice areas with beautiful homes and scenery in which some of the rich and famous live. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone stopping over in Dublin. It is one of the best Viator Tours I have done.
Our driver/guide kept us informed about sights along the way from Dublin to Malahide and Howth and on the return journey. Everything was interesting. The castle was a real treat and Howth on a warm, sunny day was a lovely place to visit and spend a short time strolling around the food stalls. Highly recommend this trip.
Great tour of the castle and shoreline. Our tour guide on June 2, 2015, was the best. We had a short stop for lunch at a fishing port, lunch good, nothing else to do or see.
This was a fantastic tour and it lasted 6 hours so plenty of time to spend at the castle and up the coast. Our tour guide was talkative and knowledgeable. He clearly likes doing these tours.
