Maldron on Cardiff

Good hotel for the money and only 12 minute walk to downtown. The hotel was nice. The shower in our room worked but you could only take a warm shower as when we tried to take a hot shower the water still came out of the faucet and was scorching hot on your feet. Room 621

A Great Place to Stay

This hotel is located in a quiet area, yet within easy walking distance of the major attractions and public transportation. We were very impressed that the desk clerk was able to let us check in around noon, when we arrived very tired after a 10 hour flight.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take advantage of the Dublin Pass and Freedom Pass if you will be visiting a lot of Dublin's attractions. At the Maldron, enjoy their breakfast buffet. Be sure to get a discount voucher at the front desk. Their sausages are the best I've ever eaten!

Maldron Hotel Cardiff Lane

The hotel itself is pretty top notch. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, which is probably fine most of the year, except we actually had warm weather during our stay and the room did get warm and stuff. The windows don't open much to allow for any air flow. We also like to have some background noise when sleeping, like a fan, so the rooms were way to quite. The hotel is a little off the beaten path from the traditional tourist attractions in Dublin. It is about a 15-30 minute walk to O'Connell Street where the main bus lines run, or you can walk up to Pearse St. and catch one of the buses that runs up to Trinity College. There really isn't much selection for food near the hotel. The hotel has a restaurant called Stir, which has decent food, but it is expensive. The breakfast buffet is a mixture of hot and cold food, with a little bit of everything. Not great, but decent for 10 Euros/person. There is a little grocery store about 10 minutes away (by foot) for any necessities or other food items you can't live without. And over by the docks there are three other restaurants to choose from, just about 5 minutes away when walking. I imagine there will be much more going in this area eventually, with the O2 across the river and the new Event Center that is being built in very close proximity to the hotel. The area is bustling with new construction, so lots of potential in the future! The service was great. Hotel staff helped out immensely trying to find the right bus stops and buses to get on, while also making a couple of recommendations of where to eat and what to see. They also offer free luggage storage if you get in before your room is available or check out before your flight leaves at night. The pool was nice, but bring your own swim cap, or you will have to buy one there. The gym is also pretty nice. Dublin is a great city and lots of fun, but staying closer to city centre is more ideal for tourists.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Guiness Storehouse was excellent for any beer lover. The Dublin Zoo seems a little unorganized, or at least not crowd friendly. Visiting on a weekday may not be so bad. The Green Hop-on/Hop-off bus tours were worth the money and take you around to 23 different stops throughout the city and a couple of the bus drivers really made the trips more memorable and interesting!

Nice hotel for the price

Very nice hotel. Large rooms, great breakfast and nice bar on the ground floor. Only issue is that the hotel could be a little closer to city center (about a 20-25 minute walk) and taxis are expensive. Overall though, a great hotel for the price.

Super anniversary treatment

We stayed at the Maldron Hotel, Cardiff Lane, Dublin, for two nights following a two-week vacation/40th anniversary tour of Ireland. It was an excellent experience! The hotel is located within walking distance of downtown Dublin (Grafton Street and Trinity College, etc.), and not far from the Red line LUAS, with which we journeyed to the Guiness Storehouse--not to be missed! The hotel's Vertigo bar/restaurant was very comfortable to watch Irish football, and The Ferryman pub on the corner along the Liffey River was outstanding. We would be happy to return to the Maldron Hotel anytime we're in Dublin.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Famine Memorial (sculptures) and the tour of the "Jeanie Johnston" Famine Ship replica tied up nearby on the Liffey River was a profound experience, as both my wife and my Irish immigrant ancestors were refugees from the 1847-1851 Great Hunger, when the potato crops failed.

good location

Room was comfortable and close to train and busses. Took the dart to Howth and really enjoyed the afternoon there. Would have spent more time at Trinity College but were on a tour and limited to time.

I would stay there again

Do not be put off that the hotel is a 15-20 minute walk to the city center. THE CITY CENTER IS LOUD and it was nice to get away from all of the noise, people and traffic.

Wonderful trip!

This hotel was very nice. I was traveling with two friends and we asked if we could have a third bed put in our room. By the time we got checked in and walked to our room, the extra bed was being set up. We had a breakfast and a dinner in the restaurant, the food was very good. We walked everywhere around Dublin. The hotel is right by the river and also by the new bridge that looks like a harp, so it was always easy to find. A 20 minute walk to the Temple Bar area. It was one of the coldest winters in Dublin, but the hotel was always comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great Hotel

This hotel was great. It's a little bit outside of the city center, about a 15-20 minute walk or a 7 minute cab ride. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got to the hotel really early and our room wasn't ready yet, so we waited in their lobby and accidently fell asleep (we had just been traveling for 24 hours!) They came and got us as soon as it was ready, at about 9:30 am. Their breakfast was pretty good, the rooms were very nice. Our flight going home ended up getting cancelled and we had to stay two extra nights at the last minute. They were so accomodating, and gave us a good deal and let us stay in our same room even though it was valentines day weekend and they were fully booked. This is a great hotel!
