More time needed at Malahide Castle. We didn't need Howth as a 1 and half hour stop. Nothing to see or do there.

Extremely Informative Tour - Knowledgeable guide.

Malahide Castle was beautiful. I can't recall the gents name who was our tour guide - older man- but he was a wealth of information. Rode on a comfortable bus. Time allotment at both sites was perfect. In Howgh, the 1st seafood place is recommend. It was crowded and disorganized.They didn't allow carry out patrons to use outside tables. Walk a bit down to Kish Fish. Served immediately, excellent fish and chips and the scone was excellent! Maybe a bit more, but quiet with wonderful food and near the water. Howgh is beautiful and a must see!

This tour was fine overall. The bus is not very comfortable for the longer trip and gets very loud while idling so it made for a less than pleasant drive. The tour of Malahide was interesting but it took about 45 minutes and we had some time to shop or walk around afterwards. On our way back to the bus we saw a sign for the butterfly gardens and were so disappointed no one had told us we could have seen them. I would have much rather done that than have so much time in the castle. We were also told it was best not to eat at Malahide because we would have time in Howth, but when we arrived we had about an hour to not only see Howth but to sit down and eat. We walked into about 7 restaurants that had to turn us away because there were no available tables (it was just me and my sister). By the time we found a place that could seat us, we had very little time to enjoy our meal before we had to run back to the bus to head home.

This was a great tour. Loved Malahide and also the drive to Howth. Our guide Ciaran was knowledgeable. The scenery was awesome along the coast road to Howth and we really enjoyed our time in Howth. I would recommend Dodublin tours and this guide. Would like more choices in the visit choice as it was my daughter and myself on our trip to Ireland

We took this tour with Chris and he was wonderful. He told us many facts about Dublin on our way to the castle and then on to Howth. Very knowledgeable and made it a fun tour. His recommendation of O'Connells to eat was the best. I've never had a better fish chowder anywhere in the world. Thank you!
