Fingall is a council of communities sitting within the greater Dublin Region. Its meaning refers to a foreign tribe.
Historically there is a wealth of monuments dating as far back as 5000 years. Some of the historical treasures include majestic castles and gardens as the medieval Malahide Castle, Ardgillan Demesne and Swords Castle. There are also 9th century round towers as seen in Lusk and Swords, which were originally built to protect against the blood thirsty Norse invaders.
Nestled along Fingalls 88 km of coastline is a variety of beachside communities as Rush, Skerries, Balbriggan as well as the blue flag beach at Portmarnock; all of which provide for leisurely and tranquil days at the beach. Some may choose to stroll the beaches on foot but many may also choose the horseback option.
Towns as Skerries also provide for an interesting pubcrawl, with its active nightlife catering to all ages.
A wide array of activity options as golf, angling, equestrian, Shooting/Archery and various watersports as parasailing also exist.
Fingall is but an easy commute to and from Dublin as its serviced by Dublin public transport.
