A half day tour combining history with marine views

This is my newest tour-I propose that we drive around beautiful Dublin Bay and stop at Malahide Castle and Gardens which have a long and rich history reaching back to the 12th Century. The ornamental gardens cover 22 acres and there are over 5000 different species of plants-a wonderful photo opportunity for the avid gardener! There is also a wonderful gift shop and cafe
From there we head out to Howth-a really scenic fishing village with great views over Dublin Bay, lovely hikes, strolls along the pier with fabulous maritime views out to Ireland's Eye and Lambay Island. Perhaps at lunchtime a creamy Pint of Guinness (or 2!) to wash down some delicious local seafood and then maybe another walk to help digestion!
If you require a full day tour there are many other attractions that we can visit later on-I can structure a visit specifically to suit your interests.
Just contact me for a full day cost (not very much more) and we can decide where to visit-history, architecture, scenery all awaits you!
