Malahide Castle

Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport is the perfect choice when looking for a hotel near Malahide as we are located just 15 minutes’ drive from the seaside town.

Malahide Castle and Gardens is one of the oldest castles in Ireland, set on 260 acres, this magnificent and historic castle was home to the Talbot family for over 800 years up to 1973, when the last Talbot died. The house is furnished with beautiful period furniture together with an extensive collection of Irish portrait paintings, mainly from the National Gallery.

Many additions and alterations have been made to this romantic and beautiful structure, but the surrounding parklands have changed little in 800 years, retaining a sense of the past.

The gardens have remained unseen by the public since the Castle was handed over to the Irish State in the 1970s. It's part of an ambitious redevelopment plan by Fingal County Council that makes the Castle and Gardens one of Ireland's top visitor destinations.
