During tours of the halls and rooms it is possible to see one of the best collections of Irish period furniture, and a unique collection of Irish historical portraits in oils from the collection of the late Lord Talbot de Malahide. The 20-acre garden situated in the 270 acres Malahide Demesne was largely created by Lord Milo Talbot de Malahide between 1948 and 1973.There are in excess of five thousand species and varieties plants and trees represented in the gardens.
