In defence of Irish castles – Where can I get to quickly?

When it comes to castles, the Scots, not to mention the Welsh and English, usually have the edge on the Irish. But when it comes to the unsung delights of Malahide Castle, there is an outside chance that the Irish might even have managed to outshine their neighbours.

A 15 minute drive from Dublin Airport, or a short ride on the D suburban railway from O’Connell Street if you happen to be part of a stag or hen party and a hangover precludes any proximity to a steering wheel, Malahide is a castle to make a Hollywood location scout coo with delight, ticking off the turrets, battlements, gothic windows and sea views.

Ireland – Wikipedia

Ireland is an island to the northwest of continental Europe. It is the third-largest island in Europe and the twentieth-largest island on Earth. To its east is the larger island of Great Britain, from which it is separated by the Irish Sea.

Politically, the island is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers just under five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, which covers the remainder and is located in the northeast of the island. The population of Ireland is approximately 6.4 million. Just under 4.6 million live in the Republic of Ireland and just under 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
