Malahide is a coastal suburban town near Dublin city. It is administered by Fingal County Council, formerly part of County Dublin, Ireland. There are extensive residential areas to the south, west and northwest of the village.NameThe modern name Malahide may come from "Mullach Íde" meaning "the hill of Íde" or "Íde's sand-hill". It could also mean "Sand-hills of the Hydes" (from Mullac h-Íde) probably referring to a Norman family from the Donabate area. According to the Placenames Database of Ireland the name Malahide is possibly derived from the Irish "Baile Átha Thíd" meaning "the town of the ford of Thíd".
