Great day out for the kids with a terrific playground for kids of all ages. Some beautiful walks around the grounds. The castle can be viewed via a tour and there is a great cafe and shopping area.

The castle in Malahide is a wonderful amenity with lots of walks and lawns. There is a Visitors’ Centre with a walled garden and cafe. Plenty of dog walkers too.
