Maldron on Cardiff in Dublin

Due to other plans, we didn't use the gym or pool but they seemed to be first rate. There is a lot of construction in the area right now, but it didn't take away from the Hotel. Located about 2 blocks from the Canal Square, 2 blocks from the river Liffey, 7 Euro cab ride to the central bus/tram station or is easily walkable.

Purchase a Dublin Bus pass at the airport. 20 Euro for 5 days riding included airport transportation, bus tours, etc. and there are scads of Dublin Bus routes and busses. Incidentally, the staff at the hotel said people who use Orbitz get the best deals.

Maldron Hotel Cardiff Lane

The hotel was much better than expected. Comfortable and very clean rooms, good towels. We were 4 days in Dublin as tourists and the only disadvantage was its location. It's in the business district, lots of building going on in the area and slightly deserted at night. Also, a good walk to transportation. All in all, though, we liked the fact that the rooms were spacious, clean, with internet access and quiet for a morning sleep in.

A good hotel

The hotel is a bit out of the way if you are not going to the convention center. This extra distance out of the city center is made up for by the helpful and friendly staff.

Great staff and amenities

Enjoyed the trip, only had problems with car park, this hotel did not have one and it was very costly. Had to turn in the car early as parking was over $35 Euro a day.

Modern hotel on the outskirts of Dublin

The hotel was beautiful. The walls are paper thin. The staff was very kind, however they did not have enough information on the area. We finally found a market, bakery, and cafe located only 2 blocks from the hotel on the river side, only from the taxi driver. We used a blue eco cab, free, from O'Connel street to get back to the hotel. Wonderful, and the driver told us where alot of local places were. To use the pool, bring your bathing cap. Internet is only usable for 1.5 hours at a time in your room. The safe deposit boxes were free and fit our lap top and imp. papers etc. Always carry an umbrella

Get a multi day bus pass to use for the hop on off bus, this allows you to use the Dublin city bus as well. We combined this w/the N and S coastal tour and saved alot of Euros. In the city use an Eco Cab, free. Penneys is great for shopping, Carrols for souveniers. We ate at Flanigans and it was great. The fresh crois. and bakery items at the market were reasonable and tasty in Temple Bar. Ask the locals where to find unusual shopping and Eateries. Try to include a trip to Western Ireland, if you have 4 people it might be worth it to hire a taxi for the day, or rent a car. Dublin is a walking city, not handicap accessible. Toilets although the cleanest, they are located down many flights of stairs.

maldron hotel- Dublin

We stayed 7 days in Dublin and LOVED the Maldron hotel. It was clean and within easy walking distance to just about everything: Temple Bar, Grafton Street, the parks, and the Liffey- which made it easy to navigate. We used the fitness center everyday- most days we went sightseeing, returned to the hotel to swim or hot tub, have a cup of tea, and then go out again for dinner and the pubs. We especially appreciated the electric kettle in our room; it was so fast and spotless, and the restaurant in the lobby kept us provided with plenty of milk and tea and sugar since there were four of us and we quickly finished the tea provided by housekeeping. Also, the Maldron is very close to the Tara train station and the bus stops. It was quiet at night because it is in the business district. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. We will definitely stay at a Maldron again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate at a lot of pubs and found Panama on Bachelor's Walk ( by O'Connell Street) and Farrington's in Temple bar to be the absolute best. Be sure to be in Temple Bar on Saturday for the farmer's market. And , if you see a Butler's Chocolate ( they're everywhere) get a hot chocolate!
