If you’re in Ireland to see castles, allow us to introduce you to the Dublin North Coast and Castle Tour.

Want to escape the bustling centre of Dublin? Then why not jump aboard this enchanting half day tour that is bursting with splendid views, amazing visits and incredible history. From the magnificent stories of Malahide Castle, one of Ireland’s oldest castles, to the unparalleled scenery at Howth Harbour; our Coast and Castle tour will not disappoint.

The tour includes a visit to Malahide Castle where tour guides will take you on a journey through the history of the Talbot family and the fascinating legacy they left behind. The castle itself dates back to the 12th century and is set amidst 250 acres of expansive parkland and gardens. The castle also plays host to the delectable delicacies of Avoca Café and food hall where you can enjoy a cake after browsing the fashion from Ireland’s top designers at the onsite Avoca Store

Then you will be whisked away to the magnificent fishing village of Howth, known as one of the world’s great seascapes. This working harbour is a hub of activity with plenty to see to do from shopping in the beautiful local boutiques to people watching from the quaint cafés and tea rooms. Whether you want to stroll along the pier, spot the seals lazing in the crystal waters or simply munch on some fish and chips while sitting on the harbour wall; Howth has it all.
