We had a baggage problem leading up to our stay here and the hotel staff helped us to figure out some of our issues. Parking is an issue here since they have only a small on-site lot. We stayed one night and just parked in a garage for €10. The room itself was well appointed and had two twin beds that were situated next to each other. Good enough I guess.
The hotel is situated in an ok neighborhood a little north of the good stuff in Dublin. If you want a perfect vacation, try to stay south of the river. You'll save on some extra walking and be around more inviting restaurants and bars. The people hanging around here seemed more local and since there was a big soccer game the day we arrived, they were all liquored up pretty good. Actually saw a cabbie and a hooligan fistfighting across the street from the hotel. No tackling, just punching. Crazy.
We booked through Orbitz and paid $140 for the room. I would say it was a decent deal. There were plenty of stores and restaurants within walking distance down O'Connell street.
If you stay here, write this down: Maldron Hotel Parnell Square is located at the Northeast corner of the intersection of Upper Dorset St & Granby Row. It was not in our GPS and so we were driving in circles because apparently in Europe it is not common to post an actual mailing address online.
Also, this hotel had a phone and TV but no alarm clock.
