Features Sneak Peek: March 14 Issue

Welcome to our March 14 issue features sneak peek!

In this week’s issue, Neil McAllister stops off in Malahide, a few miles north of Dublin. Neil looks back at the history of Malahide Castle and its inhabitants, who were caught up in the 1690 Battle of the Boyne.

As well as immersing themselves in the history of Malahide, Neil and his wife took some time to visit the local tourist spots. Malahide is not short of shops and cafes to visit.

Malahide’s coastal location also provides stunning views out across the sea with nearby restaurants selling locally sourced sea food. Discover why you won’t run out of things to see and do in Malahide.
