Co Dublin, Ireland


Lambay is perfectly situated for easy access yet utter seclusion and privacy once you are there. The island lies approximately 20 miles north of Dublin city centre but just 3 miles off the coast of County Dublin, near the picturesque seaside town of Malahide.

For guests flying in from abroad, Lambay is a hop, skip and a jump away from Dublin International Airport. A 15 minute taxi ride gets you to Malahide Marina, from where the island boats depart.


Crossing by RIB takes 20 minutes in normal weather conditions.  Lambay can also be reached by helicopter or light aircraft for those who prefer to travel by air.



Malahide Marina is in the town of Malahide, north of Dublin Airport. The journey is approximately 20 minutes by road from Dublin Airport or 30 minutes from Dublin Ferry Port.  Taxis (including six seaters) are readily available from both the airport and the ferry port



The Marina is at North end of Malahide and can be reached by taxi through the Marina Village. Main Street is Malahide's high street; it has a good selection of useful shops - Boots, Gibney’s Wine Shop, Donnybrook Fair (specialty foods, wine, fresh produce, coffee shop) and a SuperValu (the local supermarket). There are also several good restaurants in the town including Bon Appetit, which received a Michelin Star in 2015.


The Marina can be reached on foot from town; it is a five minute walk from Donnybrook Fair, along the marina edge and under the Geisha Restaurant. Paved and suitable for wheely suitcases.

Crossing To Lambay


Unless otherwise specified by you, we will arrange boat transfers at the beginning and end of your stay between Lambay and Malahide Marina on the mainland, using our regular transfer boats.


The boats carry 12 passengers at a time and the crossing takes between 15-30 minutes. These boats can go in convoy or as a shuttle, depending on the tides and your party size.


It is also possible to arrive on Lambay by helicopter or light aircraft (there is an HLS and a 500 metre unlicensed landing strip, suitable for small private planes.) 


It is imperative that you check the laws for aircraft size restrictions relating to the landing strip length and get written permission from LEC before planning an arrival by aircraft.​
