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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.

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.

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.

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!

Nice hotel; I'd stay there again.

We only had 2 nights in Dublin. It's close enough to walk to Trinity/Grafton, Temple Bar areas yet is in a quieter area. Just what we needed. Nice big room for 3 adults. Very clean. Helpful staff.

Hip Hotel Near the Stadium and in the City

The staff were great from check-in thru check-out. The rooms were great for me and my 17-yr-old son and the hotel was great for walking to Aviva stadium for the Ireland rugby match and heading into the city for dinner and live music. They also had a great workout facility and pool, which is perfect for working off the breakfast buffet. The walls are a bit thin if you happen to have some late night partiers coming home and singing...
