Full description
Start your tour as you depart from Dublin and explore the nearby coast of Dublin Bay, moving through the interior and then the coast. Make a photo stop at the curious Casino Marino for the chance to learn about the use of this little architectural jewel.

Take a tour inside Malahide castle and enjoy some free time to explore its gardens at your own pace. This castle was owned by the same family, the Talbot, for 800 years. Hear the ghost stories that are associated with its walls and corridors. It dates from the 11th century and was enlarged and restored at the time of Georgian splendour.

En route, marvel at pretty villages like Malahide, parks like St Anne's, and beaches like Portmarnock. Take an optional walk from Howth's Summit cliff to the village to enjoy breath-taking views of Dublin bay and the Wicklow mountains.
In the fishermen's harbor of Howth, have the chance to see seals swimming and begging for food from the boats.

Finally, return along Bull island and the park of Santa Ana and Fairview.
