Malahide Things to Do

  • Go For A Beer #2 Smyth's

    Like Duffy's, Smyth's comprises two separate bars - the public bar and the lounge, although these have a common entrance. I don't know anything about the lounge except that it is on the right! Joe and Ellen had already spent the previous evening reconoitering and so we headed straight for the public bar.This was the "jewel in the crown" as far as...

  • Go For A Beer #3 - Duffy's

    Duffy's on Main Street certainly stands out from the row of shops in which it is located with its bright red bar frontage (I was going to say pillar box red but then I remembered that the Irish post boxes are in fact green) and its cobalt-blue lounge exterior. This is a slightly glammed-up Victorian type pub with separate bar and lounge areas....

  • Go For A Beer #1 - Gibney's

    Gibney's, with its seven separate bar and lounge areas, is a rambling ramshackle of a pub. Each of the seven areas has its own characteristic: the Bar is just that - a bar area for a quiet beer or just to shoot the bull; the Front Lounge is at the front, strangely enough, and is ideal for sitting around the real fire; the Back Kitchen is a tucked...

  • Church Ruins & Graveyard Behind Castle

    After taking photos of Malahide Castle we walked to the rear and found the ruins of a church. There was also an old graveyard with tombstones. We took a few photos but had no interest in checking out the gravestones which a fellow tourist said dated back centuries.
