The castle itself has little to offer but the walks up the Deerpark and beyond to the hills can be very nice.

This is a little secluded castle in the seaside town of Howth. It is a fairly short walk from the the train station. You just cross the street from the train station and head right. It will be on the left side of the road after a little walking. People actually still take residence in this castle so admission is restricted to groups booked in advance on the majority of days. They sometimes open up the castle to the public for charity events but those are few and far between. Therefore if you are just going as a small group or solo, plan on just getting a good view of the outside. It's pretty cool because most of the castle is still intact but there are definite signs of wear. If you are running low on things to do in Dublin or are in Howth it's a good place to visit.
