Welcome to the Malahide Historical Society's site where you can learn about the Society, about Malahide and it's environs and find pointers for further research.
We welcome material for possible posting on this site but the final decision on what to publish must rest with the Society.
Suggestions for additional items, site improvements, etc are welcome. We would also appreciate hearing about any difficulties experienced in navigating through the pages or external links.

We have added a page in the "About Malahide" section titled as above. Please take time to glance through the information - we believe all Malahide residents will find it fascinating and it also emphasises how much our village has changed. We plan to continue to gather stories, facts, reminiscences, etc. about Malahide in the last century i.e. 1900 -1999.
We are especially looking for help in recording the various shops and businesses that operated in Malahide - can you add anything to the information on the 20th Century Malahide page?
The museum will remain closed whilst maintenance works proceed at Malahide Castle.
