My wife and I had a wonderful time on our trip. Would highly recommend it to anyone. What made this trip so special was our driver, he made everything come alive and explained to us every place we travelled by. Incredible trip!

Had a great afternoon spent driving through Dublin en route to Malahide. Our driver-guide, whom I cannot remember her name! was awesome! Very funny and enjoyable to listen to and interact with. Upon arrival at Malahide Castle, we were greeted by a guide who walked us through the castle, explaining the history and artefacts and pointing out little quirks here and there. We then had enough free time to explore the gardens on the grounds. Quite lovely. We then returned to the bus and were driven to Malahide in Dublin Bay. My husband and I had read about a restaurant in Malahide and inquired about it to our driver-guide. She called them for us my phone refused to work that day and made a reservation for us. She then explained where to find the train station for our return to Dublin instead of getting an expensive taxi. The bus left us in Malahide as planned, lol! and we explored the town and pier until our dinner reservation time. Overall, a fantastic short tour. We highly recommend it! I WISH I could remember our driver-guides name as she was exceptional at her job and went above and beyond to accommodate us on our spontaneous special request

I highly recommend this tour. The guide was fantastic. His knowledge of the area was very broad and deep. The Malahide Castle tour was very interesting and there was plenty of time to visit everything we wanted to visit. The tour of the Bay was just as interesting given our guide knowledge of the area. Don't miss out on this tour!

Very well done tour. Malahide Castle was an amazing place, steeped in Irish history. The trip was done in an open double-decker bus, so the panoramic views were great. The town of Howth and the drive along Dublin Bay were spectacular. Our driver/ guide was fantastic...funny and informative. Probably kissed the Blarney Stone a few times. Great time..great value

We really loved Dublin. It is a great city, full of life and wonderful people. We had a full agenda, but we wanted to know a little more about the surroundings. Malahide Castle was very interesting, we would like to have more time in Howth. But the best was our tour guide, he made our trip very interesting, cheerful and enjoyable giving us interesting information. Thank you

The nice short half-day trip from Dublin. Our guide was a great host, funny and a wealth of knowledge about Irish history. Be sure to check our the walled garden at the castle. We opted to drop off the tour in Howth and have a more leisurely lunch and our guide gave us good info on how to hop the train back or wait for him to come back around with the afternoon tour. All in all, a great tour for the time and money.

We only had a short time in Dublin, so we wanted to see as much as possible. This side trip helped us to see a bit of the countryside as well as visiting a fishing village in Howth.M Malahide castle was very interesting.

This tour was brilliant. I thank our guide, a senior Irish citizen who was knowledgeable and very attentive with all of us. Malahide Castle was a pleasant surprise as I had never heard about it but found was important in history. Visiting Malahide castle was worth its while but the anecdotes from our guide and his lookout throughout Ireland's political and social changes linked to his personal memories was a plus and a privilege.
