Tour Overview

Take the Malahide Castle & Howth day tour and discover two gems of Dublin tourism. From peaceful islands and Martello towers to the delightful Howth harbour and enchanting Malahide Castle, this is a bus tour with a difference. Get out of the city, take in the fresh air, be blown away by the scenery and sample Dublin’s best fish & chips along the way.

The tour includes a guided tour of Malahide Castle, one of the most stunning and perfectly preserved medieval castles in Ireland. Dating from the 12th century, you’ll learn about the adventures of the Talbot family who lived there for generations. Visit the extensive castle grounds and Avoca Café and clothing shop located adjacent to the castle.

Howth harbour has always been a favourite destination for Dubliners and it’s easy to see why. You can check out the fishing boats, walk the beautiful pier, observe the seals and seagulls busily vying for food and stop off for a famous Dublin “99” ice-cream.

Only an hour outside of the city, this tour is the best way to explore Dublin’s glorious north coast with entertaining commentary by your Do Dublin guide, (the best tour guides in Dublin!), who’ll give you all the local history, stories, jokes and may even share a few songs.

Trip Advisor

“Dublin Delight”

My partner and I did this trip on a four day trip, to Dublin, it was lovely to get away from the enjoyable delights of Dublin City, and visited the wonderful castle of Malahide and its amazing history. Then onto too the fishing port of Howth were we had a fantastic fish lunch.This was a very well organised trip with a delightful driver called Ciaran who's knowledge knew no bounds, and his enthusiasm was a delight. Great day out.
