A further five minutes along the coast is Portmarnock beach, nicknamed The Velvet Strand due to the beautiful smooth golden sandy beaches.

Another five minutes brings you to the active fishing village of Howth, this picturesque fishing village is great to take a stroll around the winding streets, plenty of shops and galleries. Relax with a drink in the local bars or dine in one of the many award winning restaurants on the harbour.

From our front door the local bus stop is a couple of minutes walk to the end of the road, the bus is a nice 25 minute ride and drops you right into Dublin's O'Connell street in the heart of Dublin city centre. Here you can visit all your planned attractions whether it be Temple Bar, The Guinness factory, Dublin Castle or just take a stroll around the city's streets and listen to the street buskers crooning.

The East Ireland region


Malahide heritage village is the heart of the community with a vibrant atmosphere and is filled with shops, restaurants and pubs.

Take a stroll around the our pretty village, gaze at the traditional shop fronts with their beautiful floral displays and hanging baskets. The locals are very friendly and there is lots to see and do


Malahide is also home to golden sandy beaches, miles of rugged coastline and stunning views of Lambay Island, the Howth peninsula and Dublin Bay. Relax on the beach, go for a swim or take in the sea air and beautiful scenery on this lovely coastal walk.


Malahide Castle, set on 250 acres of park land in the pretty seaside town of Malahide, was both a fortress and a private home for nearly 800 years and is an interesting mix of architectural styles.

The Talbot family lived here from 1185 to 1973, when the last Talbot died. The house is furnished with beautiful period furniture together with an extensive collection of Irish portrait paintings, mainly from the National Gallery.

The history of the Talbot family is recorded in the Great Hall, where portraits of generations of the family tell their own story of Ireland's stormy history. Many additions and alterations have been made to this romantic and beautiful structure, but the contours of the surrounding park lands have changed little in 800 years, retaining a sense of the past.


The Marina supplies one of the iconic picture postcard views of Malahide with hundreds of yachts moored against the horizon. The Marina is one of the largest in Dublin with over 300 berths, combined with the well established yacht club makes Malahide a popular destination for visiting yachts from Ireland and overseas while the sheltered Broadmeadow estuary is ideal for dingy sailing, kayaking and windsurfing.

Malahide is situated 10 minutes from Dublin Airport and 20 minutes from Dublin City Center.


The house is located in a quiet family friendly neighbourhood with a children's playground and parking in front, 5 minutes away is the pretty seaside town of Malahide.

The local bus takes you right into the heart of Dublin city centre and runs every hour until 11 p.m in the evening.

Shops and the local pub is a five minute walk. Shopping malls, cinema and restaurants are all within a 5 minute drive

We are also a few minutes away from the main motorway that serves all routes to the North, South, East and West of Ireland.
