Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin Fingal Darragh O’Brien has heralded the news that a tourist office will finally be established in Malahide. This follows Deputy O’Brien working with the Malahide Chamber of Commerce, business and community groups to bring this into fruition.

“A tourist office is something that has been needed in Malahide for a long time. This is a vibrant area and popular with visitors throughout the year, but particularly in the summer months. The news that a tourism office will open in the next two to four weeks, just in time for the summer, is a great boost for the town.

“I and other Fianna Fáil representatives in the area, such as Cllr. Eoghan O’Brien have been working in conjunction with the local Chamber of Commerce to help bring this about and I met with senior council officials earlier this week to finalise the plans. The office will be fully accessible, located in the parish centre of St.Sylvester’s Church, right next to Malahide train station.

“It is a great facility that I am delighted to see opening. In the locality of Malahide there is a wealth of tourist attractions that visitors can enjoy. The bars and restaurants in Malahide are some of the best that Dublin has to offer. The scenery of this coastal town attracts droves to in the summer months to the area.

“People unfamiliar with the area will now have a great resource to find out information about the wealth of attractions that Malahide has to offer. Being next to Malahide train station, the point where so many people arrive in Malahide, makes this site highly accessible. This will be beneficial to the town and to visitors alike,” concluded Deputy O’Brien.
