What to see

The other main attraction is the coastal walk to Portmarnock that clings to the coast. A walk from Malahide to Portmarnock can take about 40 minutes. You may also want to take a walk along Portmarnock's Velvet Strand. The coast route is exposed and so you should be prepared for windy conditions, there is no shelter along the way if the weather changes.
