Location & Travel Information
Lambay is perfectly situated for easy access yet utter seclusion and privacy once you are there. The island lies approximately 14 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 15-20 minute taxi ride gets you to Malahide Marina, from where the island boats depart.
Crossing time is between 15 and 30 minutes depending on which boat and the weather conditions. Lambay can also be reached by helicopter or light aircraft for those who prefer air travel.
TRAVELLING FROM DUBLIN AIRPORT OR DUBLIN FERRY PORT
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. When returning to the airport, we recommend the MyTaxi app for local taxis.
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, deli) and a SuperValu (the local supermarket). There are also several good restaurants in the town including The Greedy Goose, Old Street Restaurant and Bon Appetit, which received a Michelin Star in 2015. A cosy favourite for fresh and simple salads, soups and sandwiches is Déjà Vu on Old Street.
The Marina can be reached on foot from town; it is a five minute walk from Donnybrook Fair, along the marina edge (paved and suitable for wheeled suitcases) and under the Geisha Restaurant arch. White's Laundry via GoogleMaps will guide you directly to the Marina entrance. P&D parking is available at the Marina and can be accessed via the parking app PARKPNP.
