Malahide Historical Society Museum

Malahide Historical Society welcomes you to our new museum in the Malahide Castle complex. The museum is an eclectic collection of artefacts and memorabilia focusing on Malahide and its environs. While the focus of Malahide Castle is the historic Talbot family who lived there for over eight hundred years, the museum is dedicated to the people who lived, worked and played in the village and the surrounding area.
