Malahide

Malahide (from the Irish Mullach Íde) is a picturesque suburban village of Dublin City located in Fingal (formerly part of County Dublin), Ireland. The modern name Malahide (Mullagh h-Ide) derives from around the 12th century, meaning the sandhills of the Hydes, a Norman family from the Donabate area. The population today is 25,000, having grown from 1,500 in 1960.

The town is situated 16 kilometres north of Dublin city, on the train line to Belfast. It lies between Swords and Portmarnock. It is situated on an estuary, on the opposite side of which is Donabate. Malahide is one of Dublin's wealthiest suburban towns, and possesses a fine marina.

Near to the village itself is Malahide Castle and gardens, which were once the estate of Baron Talbot of Malahide. The town grew in popularity in Georgian times as a seaside resort for wealthy Dublin city dwellers. This is evident today in the fine collection of Georgian houses in the town and along the seafront. It is still a popular spot for day-trippers, especially in the summer months. Malahide also has a collection of popular pubs and restaurants. There are 5 schools in its environs, 4 primary and 1 secondary, and there are several golf courses nearby.

Malahide is served by the DART, and is a rapidly growing dormitory town.
