We had a great experience at Maldron. The place was so clean and very nice. It's very close to all the attractions. We walked everywhere! Also the breakfast was fabulous and the staff was very helpful. Thanks so much, we'll be back soon!

The castle was beautiful and had an amazing feeling about it. There was a wedding that went till 4 am and we could hear them partying all night. That may be normal for the culture but different for us.
