Information malahide Ireland

Malahide can be reached along a coast road in the north of Dublin. The road runs alongside a cycle path and walkway for much of the journey. Malahide has a resort feel to it given its seaside location. The large town is spread out over miles, with its roads flanked by foliage and greenery to give it a countryside look. The town has a good selection of restaurants and pubs, so whether you want a cheap tasty lunch or a delicious seafood dinner, you should find something. Malahide Castle was occupied for almost eight hundred years by the same family, the Talbots: A rare feat, given Ireland’s bloody past. The castle is located outside the town itself. Since 1976, the castle has been in the hands of Dublin County Council. An oak room is at the castle’s core. It is approached through a winding staircase lit by Gothic windows that were installed in 1820. A great hall was built in the 1470s, and remained in use until 1976 as a dining area. The castle also features drawing rooms. Malahide Castle is home to a model railway exhibition. The replicas of railway stations and rolling stock that some Dubliners and Irish people will recognise will also impress because of the sheer size of a track – complete with signals – that runs the length and breadth of a large room. Visitors can watch the journey of a train and follow the track around the room as they are given facts related to specific stations and areas. Cork and Belfast stations also feature in the exhibit, as well as a display area where engines and carriages of various sizes and periods feature. Malahide Castle also has a garden, spread over twenty acres. Shrubbery of many kinds can be found in the garden because of the alkalinity in the Malahide soil.
