The picturesque seaside town of Malahide is a favorite summer spot for locals and
tourists alike. It has been the overall winner in the National Tidy Town contest held
annually.  Malahide has a large marina making it a popular destination for visiting yachts
from Ireland and overseas.

To get to Malahide Castle we took the Wild Castle Tour leaving from Dublin. 


Malahide Castle, County Dublin, is said to be the oldest castle continuously inhabited by the same family. Until 1976, apart from a period when they were evicted by Cromwell, there were Talbots in residence at Malahide. Legend insists that 14 Talbot cousins breakfasted at the castle before riding out to the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, never to return.  It is rumored that the castle is inhabited by a ghost, Puck, that was last seen in 1976. He even has his own 4 foot high door in the corner of the main dining room.

Malahide Castle is set on 250 acres of park land in the pretty seaside town of Malahide.
