Malahide Castle & Gardens

Malahide Castle and Gardens is one of the oldest castles in Ireland, with a dramatic 800 year heritage.

Generations of the Talbot family have called Malahide Castle home. Hear their stories, explore the private rooms and collections, and discover the central part this castle played in Irish political and social life on a guided tour.  


Malahide Castle

The castle was built around the original tower house which dates back to the 12th century. The great hall was built in the 15th century. The furniture, the reception rooms, the entry hallway, the corner towers and the plasterwork were all added in the 18th century and reflect the highest standards of the time.

Admire the portraits from the National Portrait Collection which adorn and decorate many walls of the Castle. 

The Walled Garden and West Lawn await exploration.

You’ll love the interactive exhibition in which you can share in the passion of the gardens created by Milo, the 7th Lord Talbot de Malahide. Marvel at the many species of plants he collected in Australasia flourishing here for you to enjoy.
