    We got a room in old part of hotel which was extremely small and basic. Condensation on window. Really not worth the money Would ask for a room in the newer part of hotel which is a lot nicer. However staff are friendly and welcoming.

    Malahide is very small, as far as I know, there are no Pubs that have over night accommodation. Best to try for a B&B in Malahide

    It's a short cab ride or you can use the bus as there is a stop outside the hotel. If you are thinking of using the bus I suggest you ring the hotel and ask for,details,of which one.
