    Malahide is very small, as far as I know, there are no Pubs that have over night accommodation. Best to try for a B&B in Malahide

    It's a short cab ride or you can use the bus as there is a stop outside the hotel. If you are thinking of using the bus I suggest you ring the hotel and ask for,details,of which one.
