Why Adam and Bernadette chose Malahide
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. 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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

Couldnt have been better
Perfect for Family of 4
This was a very quiet and restful place to stay. There are grocery stores and coffee shops in the immediate area. The DART or bus is an easy, short ride to City Centre in Dublin. We much preferred it to staying in the noisy city. There is also a nice, green space immediately across the street for children to run around and a beautiful view of the bay out front.
We had the best visit to Malahide. This property is all you could ever want. Location, view, amenities...just great! We loved having a dishwasher and washer and dryer too. Can't wait to stay again.
Modern ,comfortable and convenient
Our stay at Malahide Marina was wonderful. Great use of space, smartly decorated and comfortable. Convenient to shops and transportation and seaside. Lovely respite from travel and noisy cities. Thankyou for making your apartment available to us.
We loved this place in Malahide. It was a good location, we were able to walk into town & nice walks along the water just out the front door. Best instructions ever to find the apartment. Well equipped apartment & very quiet area. Would love to return one day.
Malahide- a wonderful place to visit
Adam and Bernadette were incredibly generous and attentive hosts! They were available for questions before the trip and the morning we arrived. The property was exactly as described in a fabulous location. We walked to the Dart station everyday and went back and forth to Dublin as well as to Howth and Dalkey. Very easy and convenient. The park just outside the apartment is lovely and we walked everywhere- pubs, shops.
The apartment was spotless when we arrived. I highly recommend this lovely property!
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.
