good place to spend before the flight the next day?

by EllenH

We thought about Howth which we like alot but never been to Malahide and it is much closer. Read a great VT tip about a B&B, are there any good pubs for our last night in Ireland which we may be meeting up with an infamous Vter from England.

Malahide would be an ideal location to stay on your last night. Gibneys is probably the most well-known pub in the village but there are others. There are lots of cafes and restaurants too so you'll have plenty of choice if you're planning to meet a VTer.

There are some nice apartments besides the marina. When we were in Malahide I thought some might be sfor rent. Suggest you contact the Information centre.Maybe this info is late, interested to know where you finished up.

finished up in Malahide for 2 nights and no regrets...only one place to stay at that time of year but we negotiated the price to pretty much half price. 3 pubs in town ,two which I prefer and met up with Johngayton and met lots of nice people from around there. Very easy drive to the airport, would stay there again no question.

Travel Tips for Malahide

Maritime village

by ZiOOlek

Malahide is often described as a picturesque maritime village, Malahide has been the overall winner of the Tidy Town Competition and in the summer months attracts both Dubliners and tourists to enjoy the local ambience.

The sea has played a major role in the development of tourism in the town. The extensive Velvet Strand stretches to the horizon and is extremely popular with bathers and water sports enthusiasts. Malahide also boasts a marina with some three hundred berths and the only natural inlet along the East Coast. As a result Malahide is a popular destination for visiting yachts from both Ireland and overseas.

The best what you can do when visitng Malahide is just walking as the beauty of the town and the sea make the athmosphere.... :)

Play some tennis

by lbhspatriot

Malahide Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club was originally based on the grounds of Malahide Castle, Lord Talbot but was later moved Courts to its present site, known as "The Square". Current clubhouse has extensive and modern facilities. Anyone who enjoy a match of tennis should try this one out.
It is easy to find because of it's proxity to the Grand Hotel.

Bailey Lighthouse

by lbhspatriot

The Baily Lighthouse is located in Howth, Howth's Head to be accurate which is on the southeastern part of the peninsula.
The lighthouse is accesible both by foot and public transport. But have in mind that it won't take you to the location, you'll have to get of at the last stop(at the top of the town) and go further up heading away from Howth itself.
You could also try walking from Howth but be carefull, the coastline is rough and labirynth like.
It might be a long distance to walk if you are not carefull and choose the wrong path, but this location is worth your effort, trust me.

It is surely one of the pretties sites I've ever seen, closed in by the cliffs, surrounded by the irish sea and luxurious villas. We arrived their when it was getting a bit dark, and the view of the Lighthouse light was beautifull (and very romantic!). If you like ocean view sceneries go and check out this Lighthouse, unfortunalety it is not possible to tour the inside :(

St Sylvester's Church

by ZiOOlek

An austere Gothic revival church with a fine spire and entrance doorway. The church spire was not added until 1901 and a poem called "The Church without a Steeple" refers to St. Sylvester’s in its non-steeple days. Allegedly the spire was copied from St.Annes Church in Raheny. The two carved heads supporting the arch of the front door are St. Brigid and St. Columcille. It is said that the sculptor left St Brigid unfinished as the fee for his work did not satisfy his expectations.

The Marina

by lbhspatriot

Malahide has an amazing Marina which is well known in Dublin County Area and a favorite for many Irish yachters. One of it's biggest assest is location, it is close close to Dublin (a quick journey on the M50, mere miles away from the Airport and well accesible by public transport. The location makes it perfect for cruising along the scenic east coast of Ireland.
Visitors will find all the necessary services in the marina centre or Malahide itself.
Restaurants, pubs, hotels and shops. Within walking distance there also is a park, botanical garden - and what is more important (for me) an amazing beach! For sport maniacs a golf course and a tennis court is alsa accessible :)

The Marina is open all year round, so if you have a chance, go and check it out :) Perfect place for a family activity weekend or a romantic get-away (I know I tried it out!)
