Malahide Historical Society Museum

The last aim of the Society was achieved in 1988 when the Cottage Museum was opened in the grounds of Malahide Castle, just inside the main gates on the Back Road. In 2007 the museum moved to new premises in the Craft Courtyard adjacent to the rear entrance to the Castle. However, when the Castle and courtyard underwent major conservation and development works in 2012, the museum closed and the collection was put in storage. Fingal County Council  subsequently granted us the ground floor rooms in the building known as the Steward's House, the two-storey three bay house in the coach park adjacent to the visitor reception area for the castle. We have an eclectic collection on display together with several audio visual programmes. Entry is free and the museum is manned by Society volunteers.
