Cafe Provence Malahide

Anyone who’s anyone knows that Malahide is one of the most beautiful, calming places in Ireland and I, myself visit this area on a regular basis. In Malahide village there are extensive retail facilities and services including fashion boutiques, hair and beauty salons, florists, food outlets, and a small shopping centre. There is a wide selection of pubs (including Gibney’s, Fowler’s, Duffy’s and Gilbert and Wright’s) and restaurants and the Grand Hotel. All this is just a short walk away from the beach and on a lovely sunny day, you cant beat heading down to Malahide and basking in the ambience. However, I am not here to talk about Malahide and all its […]
