Malahide Castle: The Ghostly Gathering

I think I mentioned in my previous post that Malahide is my favorite town in Dublin. Why? First it is located near the beach. Second, you can see plenty of beautiful spots around the area. And third, it's so peaceful there.

Malahide Castle

One of the amazing spot that you should not miss when you're in town is the Malahide Castle. It has so much to offer. It is one the oldest castles around Ireland.  

Malahide Castle was the home of Talbot family for about 800 years. The history of people who lived there are highly emphasized through the paintings around the wall of the castle. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed so I won't be able to show you the amazing style, architecture and decorations inside the castle. 

They said there are five ghosts who reside in the castle. Scary? You can go there this October 30 and 31 for "the ghostly gathering" to experience it yourself. It is a tour specifically telling stories about the ghosts of the castle. There are other fun activities like face painting and special halloween movie. All that for €12 per adult and € 6 per child. Family ticket is also available for €26 (2 adults and up to 3 children). The gathering will start from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm with ghostly tours every 30 minutes. 

Do you want to meet the ghosts of Malahide Castle? Come and don't miss the spooky day. 


  1. Very familiar ang castle na ito. I have written kasi an article about famous castles.

  2. Five years from now, a friend and I promised each other that we will tour the UK - all the literati houses first then the castles, I'll list Malahide now. :)

  3. My husband would love those kind of ghost tours. We had a couple ghost tours and we love it, The story is interesting.

  4. This castle looks creepy but i love it. It reminds me of Casa Loma Castle in Canada. I have so much admiration about old Castle they are nice outside but looks creepy inside.

  5. oh...might not going there during spooky days i would rather not see a ghost lol.

  6. At least you've got a beautiful photo of its facade. I am curious why it is called The Ghostly Gathering?

  7. Wow! What a beautiful castle! Someday, I want to take my family and visit some of those landmarks in UK.

  8. Majestic castle! And I wanna learn more about the history of the castle and its inhabitants before. :D

  9. I want to meet a ghost if he’s friendly or cute :P I always dream to visit a castle. I hope someday, I’ll be able to.

  10. When you went inside sis, did you ever have an eerie feeling like there is a ghost around?

  11. I'm a scaredy cat sis but that castle is so beautiful. I think I'll marvel at the grandeur right before my eyes from the exterior :)

  12. Now, can't help but dream that I am in Malahide Castle.

  13. I don't want to meet the ghosts of Malahide Castle but I certainly want to visit that place and have a picnic! ^_^
