There’s a lot going on at Malahide Castle this summer…

…While it’s another bumper year for big gigs at the Castle – Arcade Fire (with Echo and the Bunnymen in support) celebrating 20 years of their seminal album Funeral; Take That; country legend Shania Twain; LCD Soundsystem; and Nicki Minaj included – there’s more. Here’s our guide…

Saturday, June 15 sees a theatrical performance of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel about sisterhood and growing up in Civil War-era America, ‘Little Women’. Doors open at 6pm, with the show beginning at 7pm. The performance will take place on the West Lawn of the Castle.

On Tuesday, July 2, Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents its take on William Shakespeare’s classic ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Again, doors open at 6pm, with the play starting at 7pm on the West Lawn. For both events, Malahide Castle is urging people to bring their own rugs and/or low-backed seating to ensure their comfort.

Apart from that, every Saturday evening during the summer months – starting at 5pm – Malahide Castle hosts its own Whiskey Tasting Experience. The event takes in Irish Whiskey, Scotch, and Bourbon and teaches about the history and journey of Irish Whiskey up to the present day.

The tasting includes 5 premium Irish whiskeys from all over the island of Ireland, including the very local Lambay Whiskey, matured on Lambay island, just 3 miles off the coast of Malahide.

The experience will last approximately 1hr 15 minutes. Online pre- booking is advised as there are just a limited number of places to ensure social distancing and an enjoyable quality experience for all.

Tickets are €35 per person. Tickets need to be collected from the Visitor Centre at least 10 minutes before your booked time. Ticket holders must be over 18 and please note photo ID may be requested at ticket collection.
