    Am Nachmittag sind wir mit der Bahn nach Howth gefahren. Vor Ort durften wir uns dann entscheiden was wir am liebsten machen wollen. Ich war die einzige, die an den Klippen wandern gehen wollte. Ca 10 km Rundwanderung, der großteil des Weges führte an den Klippen entlang, danach ging es durch die Stadt von Howth zurück. War eine super Entscheidung die Wanderung. Die Küsten Irlands muss man gesehen haben.Read more

    Day trip to Malahide Castle

    July 5, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    Another work day and another day trip for Ramya & the boys - this time it was to Malahide castle on a surprisingly sunny day by Irish standards.

    Malahide Castle dates to the 12th century & lies over 260 acres close to the village of Malahide, nine miles north of Dublin in Ireland. The estate began in 1185, when Richard Talbot, a knight who accompanied Henry II to Ireland in 1174, was granted the "lands and harbour of Malahide". The oldest parts of the castle date back to the 12th century and it was home to the Talbot family for 791 years, from 1185 until 1976, the only exception being the period from 1649–60, when Oliver Cromwell granted it to Miles Corbet after the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland; Corbet was hanged following the demise of Cromwell, and the castle was restored to the Talbots. The building was notably enlarged in the reign of Edward IV, and the towers added in 1765.

    The estate survived such losses as the Battle of the Boyne, when fourteen members of the owner's family sat down to breakfast in the Great Hall, and all were dead by evening, and the Penal Laws, even though the family remained Roman Catholic until 1774.

    Malahide Castle and Demesne was eventually inherited by the 7th Baron Talbot and on his death in 1973, passed to his sister, Rose. In 1975, Rose sold the castle to the Irish State, partly to fund inheritance taxes.
