Geocache Description:

Set in the grounds of Malahide Castle

Malahide which means "on the brow of the sea" is a village nine miles north of Dublin. The castle is close to the village and is built on a small rise which commands a view of the bay. There are many magnificent oaks, chestnuts and sycamores dating to the days of the Tudors. The hall of the castle is one of the purest specimens of Norman architecture but it is not known whether it dates from the reign of Henry IV or from that of Edward IV when the original building was considerably enlarged and embellished. The circular towers flanking the facade were added in 1765.
