  • I really enjoyed being able to see archeologists at work. They were excavating the grounds while doing restorations and additional walkways etc. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. 
  • Set in the town's park, has a renovated chapel attached - not yet open to the public but viewings can be arranged. Apparently going to be part of a new cultural quarter in Swords 
  • Fantastic Festival for Halloween with a beautiful end with great fireworks. Has to be visited even during the rest of the year.

  • Bello e gratuito, anche se piccolo e breve da visitare. È circondato su tre lati da un parco che segue il corso del fiume.
  • Wonderful, historic site. The park is lovely. The restoration works done to date make this a place to visit. Looking forward to when this attraction is open 7 days. Great to see more work being done to make this a real tourist attraction.
  • They have done a good job with the restoration work.
  • Nice for a walk around the grounds if you're in the area but don't expect a tour! Malahide castle is 10 mins away and is well worth a day trip.
  • Well maintained castle. Beautiful site for a walk if the weather is nice. Always quiet, unusual for such a historic place
