Got the morning or afternoon free in Dublin? Then explore Dublin Bay just outside the capital on this relaxing 3.5-hour tour. You’ll take a wander through the beautiful estate of Malahide Castle and enjoy the fresh sea breeze and breathtaking views of Dublin Bay from Howth Summit.
Your half-day tour starts with departure from central Dublin for the drive to Malahide Castle, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of this refurbished landmark that dates back to the 12th century. With your guide, wander the castle grounds, spanning some 250 acres, and keep your eyes or ears open for ghosts said to haunt the site. You’ll see the private gardens of Lord Talbot, which have been opened to the public and are described by garden lovers as a small botanic haven.
Then visit the local craft shops or relax over a coffee and snack, if you wish (own expense), before continuing your tour with a coastal drive through picturesque Malahide to Howth. You have time to stroll around this pretty village before making your way to the summit of Howth for a photo op over Dublin Bay. Less than one hour from the city, you’ll enjoy a scenic respite.
Your tour ends with return to your pickup point.
