History

There has been a settlement at Malahide (Mullach Íde in Gaelige meaning the Hill of the Hydes) since ancient times. The Vikings landed in 795 AD and the Danes were settled here from 897 AD. In 1185 the Normans were in control of Dublin and from the 12th century the castle at Malahide was developed by the Talbot family who remained in residence until the 1970's.
The village developed in the early 19th century and the small harbour was used to import coal and timber. Flax was grown locally and the stain it left on walls as it was being dried gave name to the area of the town still known as 'Yellow Walls'. The Grand Hotel was built in 1835 in anticipation of the arrival of the railway which started service in 1844. This, along with the development of the Malahide Sea Baths, put Malahide on the map for visitors from Dublin and beyond.
In recent years the town has developed its visitor attractions and facilities. It has top quality Hotels, conference facilities, shops, restaurants and bars. The coastline provides a variety of recreational opportunities and the town has a full range of sporting and social facilities. Malahide is also an example of civic pride and is a winner of the national Tidy Town competition.
