“Pleasant, convenient, great bed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Pleasant and engaging hosts, clean and comfortable rooms, good food, great mattress. Convenient location a mile from the train and shops, nice walk to the castle. Gerry told us about a music night at Fowlers pub which we really enjoyed.

Stayed here twice now and can't speak highly enough of Gerry and Eithne and their hospitality. The place is immaculately clean, the rooms have everything required including en-suites and the full Irish breakfast is fantastic. If you are planning a trip to this gorgeous part of the world, whether you are on a tight budget or not, you won't find a friendlier, cleaner place to lay your head.

I stayed on two separate nights (in between my travels) and the rooms were spacious and clean. The bed was comfy too! Jerry and Etna were welcoming and made me feel very much at home. The breakfast was really good too!

We stayed overnight on Sunday and spent Sunday afternoon and evening in Malahide which was very busy and great fun. We had to be up early in the morning and despite breakfast being advertised 'from 8.00' they were happy to serve us at 7.00. Breakfast was excellent and so were the rooms. Gerry and Eithne were really nice and a great help.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stayed overnight before catching an early flight back home. We had a nice room although the duvets were small and it was hard to stay covered. A large breakfast with lots of options - fruit, cheese, meat, yogurt, full Irish cooked to order. A sign said not to drink the water in the bathroom: they provided water bottles but we forgot to ask why we weren't supposed to drink the water. Short-ish walk from the downtown area.

Compared to the other B&Bs we stayed in, it felt like we were in someone's house (stuff sitting around, dogs in and out). It wasn't bad, just a little different.

The best part: 15 min drive to the airport!

This was a good location
Malahide is on a good commute line to Central Dublin
The room was clean and tidy and suffice for our needs
The breakfast was hearty and Gerry was very amiable and knowledgable of the area and other parts of Dublin
Enjoyed the proximity to Malahide Castle and Grounds which enabled early morning runs in the safety and comfort of a beautiful park with no traffic
Malahide offers boutique shops, bars, restaurants
Malahide - a great place to stay!

Gerry and Eithne run a lovely B&B. the breakfast was hot and fresh, the beds are warm and cozy and Gerry and Eithne are fun and filled with joy. I enjoyed their music, signing, their stories about Ireland and their knowledge of how to get around. The castle lodge is close to the train which makes for easy travel into Dublin.

Room Tip: No pool and no fitness center but in a great neighborhood close to a park filled with trails. All ro...
