Nice beach, nasty currents

Watch out for the currents, they can easily whizz you out to sea or worse. Overall very nice beach though, best when not busy

This is a quite and beautiful beach to go for a walk. Whether you're alone or with family, it doesn't matter. Good parking right beside it, in case you need it and easily accessible by public transport too from Dublin city center. Great place to visit!👍

Malahide has a very beautiful little Village and a fantastic Beach. The Sea is very clear and the Beach is super clean. The local people are also very nice and easy to chat with. I really enjoyed my stay there and I must say it was one of my favorite parts from my Dublin visit. I fully recommend going there... More

Lovely little beach, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike! The locals are very aware of the dangerous tides but visitors should take note and be very careful if entering the sea.

This is a lovely beach. The tide is big so when it's out there is a vast area of lovely sands. With big tides come strong currents so great care must be taken if swimming. Kids are safe if supervised.

We found ourselves with time to kill on a recent trip,to Dublin, so we decided to see Malahide in the day time. It was a Buick drive from the airport hotel and was well worth the time. It was a beautiful Sunday morning the sun was shinning and the tide was out. The sea path is well maintained and full... More

As a long term resident can only saw good things about this beach in all weather. Check out the blow hole between malahide and portmarnock when the tide is in (near high rock).

Malahide beach is beautiful for a walk or if you dare take a swim! If there is a beautiful day, why not have a picnic at the beach?

Some nice autumnal walks along the beach. Seems very clean, no issues with litter. Beach is sandy, be careful not get get isolated on the remoter parts of the beach when the tide comes in, easy to do. As it was November needless to say you need to wrap up warm from the wind. But great for blowing the cobwebs... More
