New Developments in Malahide

    Launching in April or May. All building work has stopped at the moment so expect delays.

    4 beds will be the same price range as Ashwood Hall - 780k or there abouts.

    I'm in the market myself in Malahide but can't justify some of these prices for the new builds.

    Perfect, thanks!


    I was hoping that some of the 4 beds would be in the same range as the Brookfield ones.

    They are slightly bigger I think! Still crazy money.

    You can get nice 4 beds in Gainsborough or seabury for 500-550. 780k seems a crazy premium for a new build.

    Looking in Malahide and I feel the premium for the new builds is way too high. Think we’ll just get a second hand one and renovate. Second hand better located anyway.

    We were considering the new developments close to Portmarnock' Dart station a few months ago, but once we visited the area we realized it's a bit far from the village, coast, shops, etc. (not to mention is not as lively as Malahide).

    Our preferences are a coastal town in the Dart line in the north, because we like it more than the south side equivalent (it gets better after Dun Laoghaire, but then it starts to get a bit far from the city). Clontarf/Raheny are also nice but a bit more expensive when looking at new developments.

    Malahide ticks most of our boxes in terms of amenities, closeness to the village, the dart station, the coast and the parks. Our price range is around 650k. We will still visit other areas both in the north and the south, we are not in a rush but we just got the AIP.

    Ya sounds like I was looking for the exact same things as you. Had proximity to the Dart station as no.1 priority as will be using this 5 days a week for commuting, and a 20 min stroll to the beach or a 5 min dart to Malahide at the weekends for socialising weren't deal breakers. Anything in Malahide was adding 30 mins onto my commute.

    Does anyone know anything about a development called Oak Park in Malahide? It got a mention in an article in today's Irish Times, but I haven't heard of it previously

    Oak Hall maybe? Not new builds though.

    Theyve applied for planning for a ginormous big development at Auburn House on the outskirts. Maybe that's it. Permission not granted yet.

    No, it's definitely Oak Park, just found this on Daft :

    Fairly sure this is the one on Kinsealy lane, just opposite the entrance to Castleway. They’ve started clearing out and working on a site there. This looks like it’ll be a nice development. Plans are on the fingal coco website

    Does anybody know which primary school catchment area Brookfield is in?

    I'm pretty sure malahide parish ends at the back road so I'd guess Nicholas of Myra for local Catholic school. For non catholic school it's in the catchment for the malahide portmarnock educate together national school, which I believe may be moving to somewhere along kinsley lane.


  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭ zootroid


    What secondary school does Nicholas of Myra feed into?

    It's in the Howth Deanery so they have the CAPPS form where you just select one school. But then for over subscription the schools apply their own criteria.
    I know Mercy College in Coolock has it as a feeder but don't know about other schools.
    I think the Malahide community school catchment area might go as far as the Kinsealy church (the school itself would have that answer) so all of kinsaley lane could be in the catchment, not 100% though.
    So secondary might be more about where you live if you're coming from Nicholas of Myra.

    I really think the whole catchment/feeder/parish thing is so confusing. Can't see why they don't just draw a circle of a certain radius around each school and that's the catchment. My kids are outside the catchment of the school they go to but they're possibly the closest living students. The catchment boundary is the road our estate is off and the school is just down the other side of that road.

    Thanks.

    I agree with you on the catchment / feeder / parish thing.

    We would be interested in some of the developments along the back road, but the ambiguity of whether they're in the catchment area for schools is off-putting

    Ashwood hall and Brookfield are in the catchment for Oliver Plunketts but the Kinsealy lane developments aren’t.

    The one problem with Malahide and surrounding area is that they are literally building everywhere now.. every second or two out of three farmers with land are flogging it off to developers...

    Malahide was a village, a small sleepy little quaint village, now it’s quite a reasonably sized and expanding busy town... with high population density.

    Family there hate what it’s becoming now having lived there since the mid 1960’s

    My cousin who works in Santry compared to about 8 years ago has an extra 15 - 20 minutes in the morning just trying to get out of Malahide.... 40-50 minutes to go 13 kilometers. They are in St Sylvester’s Villas....

    Fingal county council give not one shît, they pedestrianized New St at the behest of businesses, the locals have been up in arms about that with the council even hanging up on my cousin who is quietness and politeness personified but was persistent when she wasn’t getting straight answers to straight questions..

    A certain family of publicans have huge sway in the area and always have as relates to anything going on in Malahide... they have been the drivers and lobbying politicians and the council.

    What’s the problem with this? That the affluence and exclusivity is being diluted?

    There’s some serious generational wealth in Malahide. Keeping it like it was in the 1960’s is like saying you want it to stay generational.

    Where should they build houses instead?

    Ah. Pedestrianising New St was the best thing to ever happen to Malahide and it works well for people. A couple of businesses can't have a veto on the future.

    I don't think this is very accurate tbh. I grew up in Malahide, I don't live there anymore but have family there, friends I've known since primary school there, there and I'm out there all the time. The village feels the same as it ever did to me. Pedestrianizing New Street does not have the locals up in arms, it has a small group of very loud locals up in arms. In this day and age anyone arguing for more space for cars and less for pedestrians needs to have their head examined in general imo. Why does your cousin so badly want to be able to drive down New Street exactly?

    Also, you also don't need to go near the village to get out of Malahide from St Sylvesters Villas. It is south of the village as is Santry so unless they're doubling back on themselves or something.

    If your family don't like what's happening that's up to them obviously but I don't believe this is a widespread view at all. It's a lovely place to live.

    Like many of you posts, a mix of inaccuracies, unfounded allegations and hysteria, without a gram of hyperbole.
    Time for the ignore list.:)

    While I don't think that was the OP's point, overall you do get this sense in Malahide a bit.

    Nigel & Annette in their 80's 3 bed with a 03 Merc outside getting worried that the tone of the area might be brought down by couples in their 30's who are spending 700k on a new build, with salaries the former never near achieved in their lifetimes.

    Many of the 'locals' moved in while the place was cheap to buy. Maybe the sea air has gone to their heads since


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,112 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    These are the horrific scenes on a New Street that the locals are up in arms over. If only the view was replaced with whole a load of traffic. The town would be so much nicer.



  • Registered Users Posts: 112 ✭✭ KFed


    859,000 for the brookfield 4 bed semi show house?

    Is that where the market is at?

    The other four beds sold for 670,000 - 699,000 for the same house (without being the show house).

    That is a sizeable premium for carpets and couches?

    Up 22% in a year?



  • Registered Users Posts: 464 ✭✭ Smouse156


    859k for a 138sqm 4-bed semi is complete gouging. They’re really hoping for a huge fool! I’d be surprised if the banks agreed the valuation.

    I’ve been in this house, it’s tiny for that price and it’s not even detached. Anyone buying that is 🔥 lighting money on fire.



  • Registered Users Posts: 112 ✭✭ KFed


    Hardly a typo and they meant to price it at 759k? I know show houses typically command a premium, but 159k above the non show houses that all closed weeks to months ago?


    Genuinely interested to see if they can find a buyer at that price.

    There are other, second gen homes in the area, at 120sq m asking mid 700's though, d1 energy rating.


    That also seems a strong asking. But particularly given the ber, etc. Interested to see do they find a buyer though or are these just try on asking prices and come back to the market in spring 2022 for real pricing?



  • Registered Users Posts: 464 ✭✭ Smouse156


    One thing to be very worried about in relation to Seamount Rise is the houses are going on sale first. Then the 76 apartments will be sold, likely to a vulture who will actually pillage the council for Malahide rents.

    You could end up spending 800k to live in a council estate.
