Maldron Hotel Cardiff Lane
Travel Blogs from Dublin
Last English breakfast and last day in London (honestly one of my favorite cities) - I am rather saddened by this, so I decided to send myself off with a chef-prepared sausage omelet to go with the normal pork and egg laden plate. However, as before I added some Druid food with yogurt just to balance it out. I have been telling myself on this trip …
After a long journey, we finally made it to Dublin! Our original domestic flight back in the US was delayed 3 hours so in order to get here on time, the airline flew us to London last night and we had a direct flight from London to Dublin this afternoon. When we arrived we took the bus to our hotel and asked where the nearest shopping district was …
Today is our last day in Ireland. We tried to keep our itinerary light and simple because we spent the last 3 days cramming in every little detail. We slept in until 8am or so which was nice to not wake up at 5 in the morning.
I was super excited to visit the Dublina Museum because second to pirates, I enjoy learning about vikings. This …
The alarm goes off at 5 am and off we go for our morning walk to the tourist center. Good thing that today it was not raining. Though just in case, i did pack an extra pair of socks in my bag. You never know when you'll need dry socks.
Since I saw most of the green pastures and the road to Belfast was going to be quite a ride, I opted to …
I couldn't sleep. Not one bit on that plane. They served us beverages and then an hour later came "dinner." By the time dinner was over it was 1 am; US time. Probably took AerLingus 3 hours from departure to turn off the lights. Attempted to sleep but the man behind me kept punching the touch screen, which so happens to be where my head is rested. …

Oh wow, what a GREAT hotel and a really good location. We were a short walk across the river Liffey from the bus stop back to the airport, two blocks further from the "we aren't checking your tickets" Dublin Good Faith Trust Tram, a slight walk the other direction to Aviva Stadium, and did I mention the pub right next door that became our "local" for the duration of our stay? And don't get me started on the food...Good price and really nice stay.

Just arrived back from the quality hotel and leisure centre in dublin after staying for three nights all staff very friendly and polite always said good morning etc. Takes about 20 minutes from bus stop costs 5 euros for a day pass on the dublin bus (takes about 40 mins from Airport) quite a bit bumpy on path with lugguge a lot of construction work going on but did not interfere with holiday or noise in the hotel. ROOMS the rooms are fantastic plenty of space television with about 11 channels e-mail and internet facilities, kettle, ironing board only dove soap in bathroom no other tolietries shower over bath power shower also the bed was changed twice whilst we where there. FOOD we had a meal on the Saturday night (did not make a reservation) very good starter and main meal around 90 euros for two with wine service a bit slow but staff very friendly. LEISURE FACILITIES the pool, suana etc. absolutely excellant had to pay 2 euros for swim hat compulsary in Ireland to wear one. AROUND and ABOUT about a 20 minute walk into centre of Dublin (we found it safe to walk there and back in the evening) there is a pub on the end of street called the Ferryman Pub had a few drinks in there very friendly on Sunday had Irish group in playing instruments etc. There is plent going on in Dublin went for a meal on Sunday night on Temples bar starter and main meal soup for starter and surf and turf for main course including drinks cost 60 euros. Great shopping great sights cannot wait to go back.
Have just returned from a weekend at the Quality Hotel Dublin and it certainly lived up to its name.My husband ,myself and two friends stayed there for three nights and had a great time.The hotel is about a twenty minute walk into Dublin,but we didn't mind the walk as the weather was alright.The area around the hotel is being rebuilt and I am sure it will be second to none when it is finished,in fact there is a lot of building work being done all over Dublin.We did want to be a little closer to the city centre,but I'm sure it would have been a lot noisier and costlier but couldn't have been better.The Hotel is excellent value for money.The rooms were spotless and very nicely furnished with everything you could need.The staff were very polite.They are very young and of every nationality so you have to speak slowly and clearly to them.Nothing was ever too much trouble to them and they worked very hard at all times.The leisure facilities were excellent with all the best of equipment and the pool,sauna,jacuzzi and steamroom areas were immaculate.The full Irish breakfast had everything you could want and more and the food at dinner was also of a very good quality.I certainly would go back to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone. EXCELLENT!!!!
Just back from Dublin, we searched the internet for a good hotel and came up with the Quality Hotel Dublin. It is a new hotel so therefore everything is modern and clean. Previous reviews have said it is out of town...only by a 20 min walk along the quays! All the staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and well decorated. The buffet breakfast was great (well worth the inclusive rate).
I really liked to stay in this Hotel but i had a problem with the Restaurant well only with a restaurant manager call Roxane. I am pregnant with my first baby at the time when i have sickness 24 hour a day. I stayed in this hotel for a week went downstairs to the restaurant and didn't had any problem with anyone else but Roxane to take my food to my room. It was emberacing when the poor waiter asked her if i can have a roomservice and she looked at me up and down and said "no she can't".. she was the only person who made my stay misserable as i couldn't eat in the restaurant this time becasue of the smells and my pregnancy and here she comes who say she can't deliver a simple ham with bread to my room. How could she? Anyone else in other days had no problem but her. All the other people there are lovely very nice but i only can tell you if Roxanne is in the restaurant just expect fake smile and arrogance.
We thought the Hotel was marvelous
Just back from 2 nights in the Quality Hotel, could not fault it for anything. There is construction going on outside, but this never bothered us. The highlight would the greyhound racing only a few minutes in a taxi. We would highly recommend the grub in the Ferrymans Inn and the craic(the laughs)! The owner phoned us a taxi to the airport which cost only 19euros. Cant wait to go back.
I have just returned from a lovely long weekend in Dublin with my family. We all enjoyed both Dublin and the hotel.
The hotel is next to a building site but assuming you dont spend all day in your room, you wont even notice that there are building works.
We stayed in 2 double rooms which were very large with a double bed and a single bed. The rooms were very clean with a large bathroom. We had a good deal with expedia 2 nights for the price of 3.
There was building work going on as it is a new hotel but it was not too noisy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
It was 20 min walk into the main centre.
The swimming pool and fitness centre were excellent and towels were provided - don't forget to take swimming cap if you forget you can buy them for 2 euro.
Taxi from the airport is about 30 euro and takes 30-40mins.
We ate in the lobby bar and the portions were large and extremely good.
Would definitely recommend staying there.
