Balbriggan was originally a small fishing village where King William of Orange and his army set up their camp after the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. In 1920 the town was burned and looted by the 'Black and Tans' after a Royal Irish Constable was murdered during the 1916-21 War of Independence.

About Pam McMahon
My husband grew up in Balbriggan and has maintained a strong fondness for his hometown. We have visited Balbriggan many times over the last 40 years with our children, in-laws and friends. My husband passed away in January of 2016 after avery long illness. Although he had not been able to visit his homeland for a long time, I frequently made the trip and renewed many long time friendships and recalled many wonderful times we had enjoyed together in Ireland.
Pam McMahon purchased this Townhome in 1999

Charming home close to the beach.
Great size home, close to the rail station 10 min walk. Extremely well stocked, everything you need is in the house. It's a 5 min walk to the beach.
Very nice place
Very nice place. We stayed there for ten days over the New Year's holidays. House is great for both couples and families alike.
Location is perfect and it's very easy to get to Dublin by train or bus (35 min). Stations are less than ten minutes walk from the house. Belfast is only 2 hours away by train.
There is private parking behind the house, and if you rent a car you can visit lots of places along the coast or inland.
House is very clean and well decorated. Heating was on when we arrived (I forgot to thank Pam for that).
Kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the whole house gives you a feeling of being home away from home.
Quiet neighborhood and nice neighbors. There are a couple of good restaurants in Balbriggan and you can have a nice walk along the coast.
Booking a place has never been easier because Pam responded quickly and gave us a ton of information about town, transportation and nearby amenities . She was always available for questions during our stay.
We had a really nice vacation and were very lucky to have just one rainy day.
Great and helpful neighbours as well. Nice area with lots of places to walk to.
We were travelling to Ireland to attend a family wedding and this property meet our needs perfectly. The location was excellent for us as we were close to family members as well as Dublin city where the weeding took place. The townhouse was clean, fully equipped, and very comfortable. Restaurants, grocery stores, pubs, train station, & beaches were all within a few minutes walk. The neighbors were helpful as well and checked on us to ensure everything was okay during our stay. We had a wonderful trip and would definitely recommend this property!
Girls Trip :)
My friend and I take a girls trip every year and Ireland was our choice this time. We wanted to stay somewhere that would give us the small town feel and really get a sense of Irish living, but we also wanted to be close enough to all the wonderful sights/things Ireland has to offer :) this place was perfect! We stayed for one week and the weather was amazing, we are from Arizona (USA) so it was nice to escape the heat in July. The town house is super adorable and has everything you need. Pam is very helpful and wonderful, she gave us all the information we needed to make our first international trip as easy as possible :) While we were there we toured many castles and explored many towns that are a very close commute. We used all forms of transportation bus, taxi, train, etc. Balbriggan is a great place for those who want a slower paced relaxing vacation. But if you want to travel to the fast paced city it is available with a short commute via public transportation. We also traveled north to Belfast by train and did a tour at the titanic museum, which was very cool and I highly recommend. It did take up one whole day with travel time and the tour itself, but it was well worth it! There are so many other things we would love to have seen/done but you definitely need more then one week to accomplish all the great things Ireland has to offer. Hopefully we will get to go back to Ireland someday, and if we do then we will probably stay in Balbriggan again or close to it because we loved the area so much! Thank you Pam for all your help, your place in Balbriggan is an adorable, convenient, comfortable home away from home :) we loved everything about it!
Great place for a family!
We traveled to Balbriggan to visit my mother-in-law and rented this place so we could have our own space. We had our 6 year-old and 4-month old with us. It was quiet and well-located. We walked to the beach every day. We were within walking distance of groceries and restaurants. There was everything in the house that we could have possibly needed. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The owner and caretakers were helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. If you are looking for a typical Irish meal, the Sunday dinner at the Bracken Hotel is great.
Balbriggan has much to offer tourists. Safe sandy beaches, an operational harbor and lighthouse as well as the beautifully restored Ardgillan Castle set on 200 acres of rolling parklands, with access to beautiful rose and kitchen gardens. Nearby is the Balbriggan Golf Club, an 18 hole championship course with full bar and restaurant. There are also historical sites dating back from the 14th century at Balrothery, Bremore and Four Knocks. The fresh water lake at Balrothery offers great trout fishing. A tourist information office is located on Georges Square, the center of the town, which is steps from the townhome.
