Malahide Beach, Co. Dublin

I had mentioned the neighbouring beach of Portmarnock some time ago but whilst walking from the [free] car park of Malahide beach to teach my gardening class in the library, I simply had to stop. It’s quite easy to see why really.

I can highly recommend the walk right along the coast line between both of the beaches, more than worth while. And like I said in the video, keep an eye out for what plants are growing well on your route if you are looking some new addition to your coastal or near the sea garden.

According to Fingal County Councils website

Malahide is located on the East Coast of Fingal, North County Dublin. The name Malahide comes from the Irish, Mullach Íde meaning the ‘Sandhills of the Hydes’, a Norman family from the area. Malahide Beach is 2km in length consisting of an estuary and a beautiful boat marina. The Broadmeadow Estuary is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC 205). This rich wetland provides a habitat for a variety of species of wildfowl and wading birds.

If you are walking into Malahide and plan to spend some time there, the Enjoy Malahide website is well worth a browse. Enjoy.
