This luxury property was totally renovated, completed in early January 2014, by Dublin's 'Out of the Blue' designers who have created a beautiful and stylish property.
No expense has been spared to create a truly luxurious property, with the best quality contemporary furnishings and fittings. The apartment has the look and feel of a 5 star city hotel, yet with the convenience and value of an apartment.
The property is convenient to both Dublin airport and the city centre, in a whisper quiet location overlooking a green, and with park and water views from the private sunny, south facing patio. Direct level access to the village green makes it child friendly and elderly friendly as there are no stairs.
The Malahide Yacht Club is less than 100 metres away and the Malahide Golf Club, one of Irelands oldest and finest, is less than 3 kms away. The famous Malahide castle and gardens are less than a 10 minutes walk.
Malahide is picturesque maritime village enjoys a blend of contemporary chic with old-school Irish charm that is as unique as it is captivating earning itself a reputation as a seriously upmarket and cosmopolitan coastal village.
The master bedroom has a new king size bed (Note: UK king size). Although the second bedroom is a single size room, there is a full sized singe bed that rolls out from under the bed shown in photo. Although it is possible to accommodate 4 adults we believe the apartment is more comfortable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. The maximum number of guests is 4, however the dining area accommodates 6 people should you to entertain in the apartment. Bed linens are a high quality thread count for your maximum comfort.

The kitchen has a full size dishwasher, microwave, as well as new cooking appliances and a large fridge/freezer. The fine bone china dining set is by designer Paul Costelloe and a full range of wine and champagne glasses are provided for your convenience.
The apartment is perfectly positioned in Malahide with direct access from the green and minutes to the excellent shops, restaurants and pubs that Malahide is known for. The train station (Dart) is less than 5 minutes walk and the efficient train service gets you to the city (Connolly station) in approx 15 minutes to 20 minutes, departing approx every 15 minutes during peak times.

The front terrace and the sitting / dining room is directly south facing making the apartment exceptionally bright and sunny. There are lovely views from the front terrace across the green to the water and yachts.
Although Malahide is a very safe part of Dublin the property benefits from a nightly security guard stationed less than 50 meters from the property. In addition the apartment has a full monitored alarm system for your further peace of mind.

Adam and Bernadette purchased this apartment in 2014
Having spent many happy weekends in Dublin having 'the craic' with family and friends we bought this apartment in the upmarket village of Malahide and has it designed to our (very high) standard. The work started in September 2013 and was finished just by New Year 2014. We wanted somewhere close to the airport, a truly Irish village, and a quick trip into the city. Malahide ticked all the boxes and more.
What we first loved about our apartment is it's position with a private entrance directly off the village green, and the fact it was south facing. Being from Australia, sun and light are very important to us.
The other great thing is the area, Malahide, which is a friendly Irish village where the locals are welcoming, and because it is an 'up market' area it feels very clean and very safe. and the shops are good. I always come away with too many new shoes :)
We love walking and running (though not the distances we would like to!) and the castle and gardens area are our local track. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful place to exercise, the downside being the temptation to put back all the calories at the food hall and cafe.
If you see the photos you will also know that we love the apartment because it has been beautifully deigned and decorated, Our brief to the designer (the wonderful people at 'Out of the Blue') was to make this the standard of a luxury boutique hotel, but with the feeling of a home - and they got is exactly right.
We know that you will love it as much as we do.
The property is walking distance to everything (one minute to the Eurospar supermarket across the green, one minute in the other direction to the Yacht Marina; two minutes to lots of clothes stores, five minutes to the Dart (train station).
A truly unique feature, and one that you do not really appreciate until you get there, is the absence of the sound of cars driving past - because you are on a park, not a road. It makes for a very peaceful, restful holiday.
At the last minute, my husband and I cancelled our hotel reservation in Dublin and booked this Malahide apartment instead. It was the best decision we could have made! The apartment itself is wonderful, very clean, very comfortable, tasteful, and with every modern amenity. We loved the cozy fireplace! Bernadette and Adam are terrific hosts, very responsive and available with every attention to detail. The location of the apt is ideal as well, being within walking distance to restaurants, pubs, the grocery store, the train station, and beautiful walks along the sea.
I would like to emphasize that staying in Malahide, rather than Dublin, enhanced our Irish experience so much. We were able very easily to hop on the train and go into Dublin and experience all that it has to offer, and then come back to our lovely sanctuary by the sea. We made friends with locals and got wonderful recommendations regarding local activities and places to stay and things to do. Every single person we spoke with in Malahide was very friendly and helpful.
We travel quite a bit and rent apartments often. This one was a highlight. Highly recommended!
The apartment is just as described with regards to location, layout and facilities. The train into Dublin is easy to access and quite convenient and the apartment was well maintained with the exception of the blind on the back door. Really appreciated the video that described the the property access and the operation of the electronics once inside. More importantly, the owners went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of as we struggled to adjust the temperature. Thank you!
This is a pleasant ground floor apartment in the Malahide marina. It is well equipped and maintained. It is a short walk to all the shops and train station.
This is a good place to stay if you want to travel around the Dublin area.
Lovely apartment in a great location, had a slight issue on arrival but was sorted fantastically by Bernadette with was excellent, we enjoyed a lovely break in the modern apartment, apartment is very well equipped with plenty of gadgets including smart TVs, satellite system, iPad, beautiful modern Fire and more!.. is also in an amazing location, Malahide is a beautiful town and about 20-30 mins from dublin we will definitely be returning and staying again in the very near future
My dad and I have used VRBO/HomeAway several times during our travels and I can honestly say we have never come across owners that have been as helpful and detail oriented as Bernie & Adam. From the booking process, arrival to the apartment, during our stay and even through departure; there has been helpful communication between both of us. They really have left no question unanswered which made the stay much easier. The entire listing is exactly as pictured/described and the surroundings are lovely. A very friendly and welcoming area that also felt extremely safe which was great for me as I enjoyed jogging along the beautiful marina and Malahide beach. Taxi's and train we used regularly when venturing out, mostly to Dublin city for our scheduled tours and are both 5 min walk from apartment. Wonderful restaurants in the immediate area and a grocery store right across the street. Everything you would need is in this apartment; we even cooked a few nights during our 11 day stay, had breakfast and coffee out on the patio as well. This apartment really feels like a home away from home. Couldn't have asked for anything more! I would definitely recommend this apartment and would absolutely stay here again.
While retaining its 'village' atmosphere in the centre of the town, Malahide has established a reputation as one of Dublin's most desirable places to live and visit.
It is a picturesque maritime village enjoying a blend of contemporary chic with old-school Irish charm that is as unique as it is captivating earning itself a reputation as a seriously upmarket and cosmopolitan coastal village.
It is a designated Heritage Town that is convenient to both the airport (15 minutes) and Dublin city centre (20 minutes by train).
Admire stylish shop fronts with their hanging baskets lush and overflowing with colour; allow sea breezes to caress your cheeks; be hypnotised by the chime of halyards strumming their masts, join the buzz of chat and laughter from cafes and restaurants and embrace the wonder that is Malahide, Dublin’s favourite seaside village.
Malahide has also acquired a reputation as the gourmet capital of the East Coast of Ireland, with an array of restaurants noted for the quality and variety of their food representing many nationalities. Pubs with traditional music, fine restaurants, excellent shopping, and a quick train ride into the city make it an excellent choice for visitors.
A 'MUST SEE' is the historic Malahide Castle and Gardens, one of Dublin's leading tourist attractions. We encourage you to look at the malahidecastleandgardens website for more detail on the Castle, the 'Demesne' (being the extensive surrounding parkland) and the Village of Malahide. The courtyard area in the castle grounds is home to a new Avoca store, have been recently renovated with a brand new foodhall, cafe and retail store offering visitors from home and abroad a huge range of world famous textiles, food, clothing, homewares & gifts to suit all budgets.
The Demesne and grounds have pleasant walks, play areas, picnic sites, cricket pitch, tennis courts, 9-hole golf course and an 18-hole pitch and putt course. Fun for all the family!
The children’s playground, which is a short walk from the Castle, is split into sections for toddlers and older children. With slides, swings and climbing frames, the playground has something for all ages, including picnic tables where parents can keep an eye out.
The Demesne grounds has plenty of public sporting amenities including the Sports Pavilion (with a small shop for snacks, drinks and sporting equipment) a 9-hole par-3 golf course, with an 18-hole pitch-and-putt course, Tennis & Basketball courts and a Boules area.
Malahide is very popular with holiday makers and tourists, attracting thousands of visitors and foreign language students, visiting Ireland from across the world. Malahide Village is also very popular with visitors from America (USA), and Canada, who come to Ireland to trace their roots and heritage, immerse themselves in local culture, and history and of course, to play golf.
