Malahide Cricket Club History


Malahide Cricket Club is a historic club situated in the seaside town of Malahide, right on the idyllic grounds of Malahide Castle. Formed in 1861, the club now boasts 2 playing pitches, one of which serves as the International ground for our national team Cricket Ireland, a comfortable and cosy clubhouse and bar open 7 days a week which is available for event hire.

This family and friendly oriented club has teams suitable for all ages, with 5 men’s teams playing in Division 2 through to Division 13, 2 women’s teams who play in Division 1 and 2, 8 boy’s teams from Under 11 to Under 17, 4 girls teams from Under 11 to Under 17 and a Taverners/ Social team. We also run an Easter Camp and two Summer Camps for girls and boys aged between 6–13 years of age. Details for these can be found on our website.

The ground hosts club games, inter-provincial games and various international fixtures drawing large crowds and social activities, the largest being in 2013 when approximately 10,000 people were in attendance for the Ireland vs England one day international.

Malahide Cricket Club is a welcoming environment open to new memberships all year round (including family and overseas memberships).

We are easy to find, just a stone’s throw away from Malahide Train Station and Village, easily accessible by Dublin Bus, and only 10 minutes away from Dublin Airport.
