St Marnock was a missionary of St Patrick who came to Ireland from Scotland in the 6th century. He first landed on a stretch of beach between Howth and Malahide and he quickly established his first church in the dunes there. The parish that grew around his small church was named after him and today we know it as Portmarnock, from the Irish Port Mearnog; the landing place of Marnock. The ruins of 12th Century stone church still stand where St Marnock built his original church and can be visited today.
Portmarnock is one of north Dublin’s most picturesque locations. A traditional village steeped in history, it is famous for its five-mile stretch of velvet strand beach, that has long been a favourite with sunbathers, swimmers, walkers and nature lovers. From the tranquil ebb and flow of a summer’s day to the drama of a winter storm, life by the coast is ever changing and exciting. Along with the neighbouring towns of Howth and Malahide, Portmarnock offers a refreshing mix of sea air, bustling town atmosphere and plenty of local amenities.
