“Nicely located for Dublin's docklands”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Stayed a night in the Maldron as we were staying out late in Dublin and didn't feel like going home!

The hotel is located in Dublin's docklands area so its great for concerts in the O2 or shows in the Bord Gais Theatre etc. Also its just a hop skip and a jump to the Aviva stadium for sporting events. Its a little far out from Grafton street and Temple bar so you will need to grab a 5 min taxi ride from the hotel to get to Dublins main shopping and bar districts.

Hotel was nice and clean, very friendly staff and breakfast buffet in the morning was nice.
We stayed in a room at the front of the hotel with a balcony over looking one of Dublin's busiest streets but didnt hear a thing once the door to the balcony was shut. Very peaceful and quiet. Got a goods night sleep.

Overall a nice hotel, well located but didnt feel like a 4 star establishment...more like 3.5. I would stay here again if I was looking for quick access to the docklands. If you want to shop or pub hop then there are better located hotels in Dublin city centre closer to Grafton street and Temple bar.

Room Tip: Choose a balcony room at the front of the hotel on floors 6-7.

Visit for shopping with daughters. Staff very friendly and helpful. New theatre - Bord Gais, formerly the Grand Canal Theatre, directly opposite front door of hotel, great location. Pool fantastic for my 2 girls. Ten to fifteen mins to O'Connell Street. Spa facilities and gym very good. Breakfast - very good, and evening meal excellent. Room was spotlessly clean,

A great hotel and a very scenic riverside location. More than convenient for our theatre break but also close enough to the city centre for shopping and socialising. Not to mention a very warm welcome from all the staff who went out of their way to make us feel extremely welcome. I can't wait until we find another excuse for a weekend away.

Lovely hotel near the city centre. Stayed for the weekend. Great facilities even a swimming pool! Lovely bedrooms, excellent food and the staff couldn't do enough for you! Will definitely stay here again as it is just across the road from the theatre and just a short walk to the city centre. A really enjoyable experience!!

Just had an overnight stay. Lots of kids with us. Staff extremely accommodating to large party of people. Discovered that i phone was left in room after departure. Martin at hotel was of great help in retrieving phone. Went out of his way to Help me. Great location for Bord Gais Theatre, directly opposite. And 10 min walk to O2. Great food.

Great hotel if you're going to concert in o2 - about 15 mins walk in a safe, well lit up area. Got a great rate & found hotel very clean & comfortable with a fab all you can eat breakfast, including fry-ups, croissants, fruit, etc. Our room had no bath, so requested another & was very promptly changed. Only thing is very noisy radiators in room - sounded like somebody pouring a jug of water beside your ear! Apart from that, it was great & I would return again.
