Description:
Malahide () is a coastal suburban town, near Dublin city, located in the administrative county of Fingal, within the traditional County Dublin, Ireland. It has a village-like centre and extensive residential areas to the south, west and northwest.

Name

The modern name Malahide may come from “Mullach Íde” meaning “the hill of Íde” or “Íde’s sand-hill”. It could also mean “Sand-hills of the Hydes” (from Mullac h-Íde) probably referring to a Norman family from the Donabate area. According to the Placenames Database of Ireland the name Malahide is possibly derived from the Irish “Baile Átha Thíd” meaning “the town of the ford of Thíd”.

Location and access

Malahide is situated 16 kilometres north of the city of Dublin, lying between Swords, Kinsealy and Portmarnock. It is situated on the Broadmeadow estuary, on the opposite side of which is Donabate.

The village is served by the DART and the train, run by Irish Rail. The Dublin Bus 42 and 32a day-time routes and 42N Nite-Link route serve the town from Dublin City Centre and the 102 bus route serves local areas.
