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. Malahide’s rich heritage dates back thousands of years as was revealed in an archaeological ‘dig’ that was carried out on Paddy’s Hill over twenty years ago. However, most of our current displays represent times much closer to our own.
These are an eclectic mix of artefacts, pictures and domestic items that show the evolution of the area over the last hundred years. Great interest has been generated by our collection of photographs, maps and large scale aerial views of the area which provide fascinating glimpses into the way we were. Visitors, locals and especially those who have made our award-winning town their home are welcome. Admission is free but a small contribution would be most welcome. Come in and browse around. If you have any artefacts, photographs or other items concerning Malahide and its environs, we would be delighted to hear from you.
