Both family friendly and elderly friendly because it has level direct access to the huge village green, a stones throw from the local shops.

In the heart of a beautiful Dublin Marina Village, and a whisper quiet position direct on the village green, marina and beach.

* * * * * All the reviews you read are genuine - including a number of Trip Advisor senior contributors who have given us 5 stars * * * * *

This luxury property was totally renovated, completed in 2014, by Dublin's 'Out of the Blue' designers who have created a beautiful and stylish property.

No expense has been spared to create a truly luxurious property, with the best quality contemporary furnishings and fittings. The apartment has the look and feel of a 5 star city hotel, yet with the convenience and value of an apartment.

The property is convenient to both Dublin airport and the city centre, in a whisper quiet location overlooking a green, and with park and water views from the private sunny, south facing patio. Direct level access to the village green makes it child friendly and elderly friendly as there are no stairs.

The Malahide Yacht Club is less than 100 metres away and the Malahide Golf Club, one of Irelands oldest and finest, is less than 3 kms away. The famous Malahide castle and gardens are less than a 10 minutes walk.

Malahide is picturesque maritime village enjoys a blend of contemporary chic with old-school Irish charm that is as unique as it is captivating earning itself a reputation as a seriously upmarket and cosmopolitan coastal village.

The master bedroom has a new king size bed (Note: UK king size). Although the second bedroom is a single size room, there is a full sized singe bed that rolls out from under the bed shown in photo. It is possible to accommodate 4 adults we believe the apartment is more comfortable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. The maximum number of guests is 4, however the dining area accommodates 6 people should you to entertain in the apartment. Bed linens are a high quality thread count for your maximum comfort.

For your convenience there is free Wifi and two smart TV's (one in the master bedroom); the sitting room TV is also connected to cable TV (provider is UPC). An iPad is provided for your use during your stay - not to be taken out of the apartment- loaded with apps that you will find useful including local information.

The bathroom, with underfloor heating, has a large shower room with a level walk in and good strong water pressure. There is no bath however for young children a baby bath is available. A hairdryer is provided.

The laundry area, located off the hallway, has a large capacity 9 kg washing machine and dryer, both new in January 2014.

The kitchen has a full size dishwasher, microwave, as well as new cooking appliances and a large fridge/freezer. The fine bone china dining set is by designer Paul Costelloe and a full range of wine and champagne glasses are provided for your convenience.

The apartment is perfectly positioned in Malahide with direct access from the green and minutes to the excellent shops, restaurants and pubs that Malahide is known for. The train station (Dart) is less than 5 minutes walk and the efficient train service gets you to the city (Connolly station) in approx 15 minutes to 20 minutes, departing approx every 15 minutes during peak times. The cost of a single adult ticket to the city is EUR 3.05 as at Jan 2014. Cheaper fares (EUR 2.65) is possible with a Leap Card (a smart card) which can be purchased for EUR5.00 at the local supermarket.

The front terrace and the sitting / dining room is directly south facing making the apartment exceptionally bright and sunny. There are lovely views from the front terrace across the green to the water and yachts.

Although Malahide is a very safe part of Dublin the property benefits from a nightly security guard stationed less than 50 meters from the property. In addition the apartment has a full monitored alarm system for your further peace of mind.

Parking is included for 1 car though 2 cars can be accommodated by arrangement. There is level access to the apartment from both the parking area at the back of the property, and the village at the front, making it very accessible for those who have difficulty navigating stairs. At the back of the property is an external locked storage room which can be used to store luggage, Golf Clubs or other sporting equipment.

Beautiful well-appointed apartment extremely well located

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment -cleverly functional but also beautiful and clean. Made full use of the oven and hob - all equipment worked well. Quiet location even though it's a stone's throw into the village of Malahide, so a good nights sleep was assured. Small issue the first morning with not enough hot water for our shower, but we had ample hot water the next morning so not sure if we lucked out and showered too late the first morning to get the full benefit of the possibly timed heating? Everything was exactly where Alan and Bernie had indicated and although I set the alarm off as I tried to get in, my instructions kindly told me not to worry, and what steps to take if that happened. Would definitely recommend staying in this apartment.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying in Bernie & Adam's place. They really have thought of everything. The apartment is very bright and spacious and so clean. I loved the Malahide area. It's a great village and you are just steps away from a Starbucks and a grocery store plus numerous restaurants and cute shops. I hope to stay there again soon.

Very comfortable, in great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here from Aug6-10, we were very impressed by the apartment and the location in Malahide. The photos show exactly how the apartment looks, the furnishings are of good quality and very comfortable. Everything is provided that you could possibly need, in the kitchen and bathroom/bedroom items. We had friends come to visit from Northern Ireland who want to rent here in the future, they loved it! The location is perfect for walks along the coast and onto the beach, and is so close to the village for shopping, restaurants(of which there are many) and great Irish pubs. We will definitely consider returning and would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks Bernie and Adam!

Was a wonderful location and well equiped for everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This place was clean and great location. Perfect for the 2 of us. The WIFI was great and nice to have the speaker to play some music. Was very quiet and never heard anyone from the other units. Everyone around helpful to helping us get around. It was our first time to Ireland and was easy with the public transportation right there. Right out front is a little park. A little grocery store is on the other side of park for just about anything. Plenty of restaurants to eat at in walking distance. Absolutely beautiful walks to go on just from the condo. We will be back.

Perfect for the traveller and holidaymaker

  • 5 of 5

This place will exceed your expectations! Great relaxing location in the seaside village of Malahide, adjacent to and directly accessing the village green. The apartment is at the end of one of the main streets in the village and is part of the marina residential development with good pubs, great restaurants and two local grocery stores all within 2 minutes walk from the front door. Easy access to Dublin central via bus, train or taxi means you can be a tourist and return to your holiday home when you have finished exploring.

The two bedroom apartment is a good size. It is well laid out and furnished (having been recently renovated), with all the required amenities and support material to make any stay very enjoyable. There is ample space and carparking is available if needed.

The tourist information office is in the church recreation building near the coffee shop and is worth a visit to find out about things that are close by. There is plenty to do and see in and around the village plus some very good walks.

Bernie and Adam are extremely attentive and well organised owner. Everything in the apartment works and the instruction booklet covers everything you need to know about appliances, etc.

We are already looking forward to our next visit.

fabulous vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this well thought out and equipped apartment. Comfortable beds and furniture, lovely subtle grey colour scheme, well equipped kitchen, functioning appliances and good layout all made it a joy to stay here. The main attractions for us were:

- the proximity to the scenic beach and parklands ( no swimming as the currents are too strong), but lovely fresh air, beautiful light, changing tides to be experienced in sometimes twice daily walks along the estuary to the sea.

-a visit, guided tour ( the only way to see the castle) and experiencing the castle gardens is a must; lunch and browsing at Avoca, a delight. It's a nice walk to get there from the apartment.

-an unusual variety of good restaurants and coffee shops, great food shopping at Donnybrook Fair, not to mention the most women's clothing shops per square mile we've ever seen in a small village.

- easy train ride in to Dublin or other nearby villages.

The owners were so helpful and generous in their prompt replies to any and all queries and amazed us at how efficiently and generously they dealt with a problem in the unit that was discovered during our stay.

We loved our week in this small corner of heaven!

From the Owner

Having spent many happy weekends in Dublin having 'the craic' with family and friends we bought this apartment in the upmarket village of Malahide and has it designed to our (very high) standard. The work started in September 2013 and was finished just by New Year 2014. We wanted somewhere close to the airport, a truly Irish village, and a quick trip into the city. Malahide ticked all the boxes and more. What we first loved about our apartment is it's position with a private entrance directly off the village green, and the fact it was south facing. Being from Australia, sun and light are very important to us. The other great thing is the area, Malahide, which is a friendly Irish village where the locals are welcoming, and because it is an 'up market' area it feels very clean and very safe. and the shops are good. I always come away with too many new shoes :) We love walking and running (though not the distances we would like to!) and the castle and gardens area are our local track. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful place to exercise, the downside being the temptation to put back all the calories at the food hall and cafe. If you see the photos you will also know that we love the apartment because it has been beautifully deigned and decorated, Our brief to the designer (the wonderful people at 'Out of the Blue') was to make this the standard of a luxury boutique hotel, but with the feeling of a home - and they got is exactly right. We know that you will love it as much as we do.

While retaining its 'village' atmosphere in the centre of the town, Malahide has established a reputation as one of Dublin's most desirable places to live and visit.

It is a picturesque maritime village enjoying a blend of contemporary chic with old-school Irish charm that is as unique as it is captivating earning itself a reputation as a seriously upmarket and cosmopolitan coastal village.

It is a designated Heritage Town that is convenient to both the airport (15 minutes) and Dublin city centre (20 minutes by train).

Admire stylish shop fronts with their hanging baskets lush and overflowing with colour; allow sea breezes to caress your cheeks; be hypnotised by the chime of halyards strumming their masts, join the buzz of chat and laughter from cafes and restaurants and embrace the wonder that is Malahide, Dublin’s favourite seaside village.

Malahide has also acquired a reputation as the gourmet capital of the East Coast of Ireland, with an array of restaurants noted for the quality and variety of their food representing many nationalities. Pubs with traditional music, fine restaurants, excellent shopping, and a quick train ride into the city make it an excellent choice for visitors.

A 'MUST SEE' is the historic Malahide Castle and Gardens, one of Dublin's leading tourist attractions. We encourage you to look at the malahidecastleandgardens website for more detail on the Castle, the 'Demesne' (being the extensive surrounding parkland) and the Village of Malahide. The courtyard area in the castle grounds is home to a new Avoca store, have been recently renovated with a brand new foodhall, cafe and retail store offering visitors from home and abroad a huge range of world famous textiles, food, clothing, homewares & gifts to suit all budgets.

The Demesne and grounds have pleasant walks, play areas, picnic sites, cricket pitch, tennis courts, 9-hole golf course and an 18-hole pitch and putt course. Fun for all the family!

The children’s playground, which is a short walk from the Castle, is split into sections for toddlers and older children. With slides, swings and climbing frames, the playground has something for all ages, including picnic tables where parents can keep an eye out.

The Demesne grounds has plenty of public sporting amenities including the Sports Pavilion (with a small shop for snacks, drinks and sporting equipment) a 9-hole par-3 golf course, with an 18-hole pitch-and-putt course, Tennis & Basketball courts and a Boules area.

Malahide is very popular with holiday makers and tourists, attracting thousands of visitors and foreign language students, visiting Ireland from across the world. Malahide Village is also very popular with visitors from America (USA), and Canada, who come to Ireland to trace their roots and heritage, immerse themselves in local culture, and history and of course, to play golf.

From the Owner

The property is walking distance to everything (one minute to the Eurospar supermarket across the green, one minute in the other direction to the Yacht Marina; two minutes to lots of clothes stores, five minutes to the Dart (train station). A truly unique feature, and one that you do not really appreciate until you get there, is the absence of the sound of cars driving past - because you are on a park, not a road. It makes for a very peaceful, restful holiday.
