Malahide Castle

Malahide castle is an absolutely wonderful castle that is about 13 kilometers north of Dublin. And, it is a breeze to get there by the DART (thats the Irish train system) It cost me about 3 euros to purchase a round trip ticket to Malahide and back to Dublin Connelly station. That station is about a 10 minute walk from downtown Dublin and was a 5 minute walk from the Hotel I stayed in on Talbot street. And Malahide is the last stop on the train so it is very easy to figure it all out.

While I got some great pictures of the castle I couldn't go inside. They are in the process of renovating all the insides and I was about three weeks before the grand opening- drats! Anyhoo, its a wonderful castle and there is a wonderful childrens park and lots of grass where hundreds of locals were having picnics. This is clearly a place where the Irish take their families on a beautiful day.

And a five minute walk from the castle is a golf course.

Here is another look at the castle, from a distance. You can get a sense of the beautiful grounds where families were having picnics, throwing frisbees and stuff like that.

Castles of Ireland brings the reader on a tour of more than sixty castles, from the biggest and most well-known to dramatic and atmospheric ruins which had a role to play in shaping Ireland's history.
