South Beach Rush

Malahide signs

Find a Heritage Property, Park or Open Space

There's no excuse for cabin fever in Fingal. From the vast acres of rolling parkland of our big houses like Newbridge and Ardgillan to the manicured and exotic Talbot Botanic Garden, there's space to be active, blow away the cobwebs and get close to nature. Our built heritage tells the story of Ireland from pre-Christian times to the nineteenth century.


Find a Playground or Games Area

It's not a case of 'Is there a playground?' but 'Which playground shall we go to?' in some parts of Fingal. There are also skate parks and multi-use games areas, so get out, and stay out.
