Just returned from a 5 day break at the Maldron Hotel in Parnell Sq. We found it to be excellent value for money and is in a very good location for exploring. Only a 5 minute walk from O'Connell Street and the shops and a 20 minute stroll to the River Liffey and the Temple Bar area.
Rooms are very adequate with tea & coffee facilities, ironing board, excellent en-suite. The room can be a little tight, but was very clean. Unfortunately, our room (407) was overlooking the main road and the noise from the volume of traffic through the night was annoying. Windows probably need triple glazing to rectify the problem. A room to the rear of the hotel be a better choice!
We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel once and both offered excellent value. However, there are many bars and restaurants to choose from for similar meals either side of the river.
The staff were friendly and always willing to assist with any query we had. Would definately stay at this hotel again, but would request a quieter room.
