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 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.

Emerald Isle Jewel
I just returned from a month long stay in Ireland, having the pleasure of staying in David and Bernadette’s lovely apartment in Malahide. It is a bright, modern, 2 bedroom suite with everything I could want. It was even better than the description and had everything promised. But the location is by far the most amazing thing about it. It fronts on the Green in Malahide village, just a short train ride from Dublin and only 10 to 15 minutes from the airport. The village is beautiful and I was able to walk to groceries, restaurants, faboulous pubs with live music, and even Starbucks in 5 minutes or less. The veranda facing the Green is a wonderful place for having tea or a cocktail in view of the ocean on a nice day. With my rental car (and there is parking on site) I was able to take many day trips across the Emerald Isle. For my trips into Dublin, I took a train from the station only a five minute walk from the apartment. The train was inexpensive and got me to central Dublin in less than 20 minutes. I absolutely loved the place and would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone.
We had a great stay in this beautiful and convenient property.
Great communication with property owners. They were very helpful and accommodating. Excellent walkable location. Great shops and restaurants; Malahide Castle is a must see!
Property is clean,well appointed, nice furnishings, everything you would need is provided.
5 star recommendation!!!
Thanks to Bernadette and Adam
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment! It was comfortable and so so convenient. Shops literally outside the front door, beautiful views of the marina and direct access to the walk along the coast. Inside they’ve thought of everything, ensuring a very easy comfortable stay. Thanks for having us!
Beautiful location in a lovely apartment!
We totally loved this little apartment in a wonderful little town. It was quiet at night and has very good beds. Close to shops and bus into Dublin. Enjoyed touring Malahide Castle. Appreciated how easy it was to communicate with the owners. Would stay again...thank you!
Fabulous Location and Property
We loved that we could just walk out of the house and in minutes find great choices for dining out (The Fish Shack was a great find!) and an easy walk to the beach. The apartment itself is beautiful, comfortable and very clean. Would definitely 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.
