Malehide Castle: A 'Must-See' Example of Magestic Irish Castles

Malehide Castle is perhaps the most convenient to visit in Ireland if you're coming from overseas.  No tour of Irish castles would be complete without it!

The Castle is located in Dublin County, Leinster Province, just minutes from the Dublin Airport. A short drive on your own or in a taxi will take you to Malahide from the airport in under 10 minutes via Stockhole Lane and then Baskin Lane.

Things to Know About Malehide Castle

Located just north of Dublin, Malehide castle dates back to the 12th century.

A knight named Richard Talbot was given the Malahide estate, which today occupies more than 260 acres.

The Talbot family kept nearly continuous ownership of Malahide Castle until 1976.  Today the castle is owned by the Irish State.

On a visit to Malahide Castle, you can tour the museum run by the Malahide Historical Society, stroll through the Tadpolt Botanic Gardens or even plan a private event in the incredible Gothic great hall.

On our last visit, local children's soccer teams were playing on the sprawling castle grounds!
