Malahide Looped Walks – 9. Malahide Beach

Click to view route details: See:

Welcome to the Malahide Beach walk, which is the ninth in our series of looped walks. See all Malahide Looped Walks.

This 4k walk provides wonderful views of Lambay island which change every day with the light and the weather.

The walk starts at the Village Green in Malahide village centre, beautifully revamped in 2020. It immediately heads east along the coast walk behind the tennis club towards Malahide Beach.

Walk past the tennis club along the coast path. Join the beach at the slipway opposite the entrance to the Old Golf Links. Continue East along the beach for about 300 metres to the ramp that leads from the grassy park to the beach. Walk around the small headland of dunes, remaining on dry sand (above the water line). Then relax and enjoy your stroll on the main part of the beach for approx 600 metres.

Return towards the village along the beach beneath the coastal pathway. The route shown on the map joins the green space near the public toilets and leads you back towards the village along a grassy pathway. The ground underneath is sandy, like a links golf course and seldom gets waterlogged (perfect in winter time when other grassy pathways are flooded).

Leave the grassy paths back at the slipway opposite The Old Golflinks, rejoining the Coastal path. Keep left at the triangular flower bed and walk past the tennis club on your right. Return to the Village Green via New Street.
