Review: Maldron Hotel, Tallaght, Dublin - Ireland, May 2016

Review: Maldron Hotel, Tallaght, Dublin - Ireland, May 2016.

I stayed at the Maldron Hotel in Tallaght in May 2016, two of us stayed with bed and breakfast for £147 (187 Euro) on a Saturday and Sunday night booked with booking.com.

The hotel is in a modern building and looks impressive from the outside. On the inside there are some signs of wear and tear, and in places refurbishment would not go astray. With that said our bedroom  on the third floor (301), was very nice and had been refurbished in recent years. We had a very large balcony, which gave us a good view of the Shamrock Rovers football ground.

The room had tea and coffee making facilities, ample storage, a good sized bed, and was easily spacious enough for us. The  bathroom was modern and refurbished. The hotel breakfast buffet was very good indeed, and I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

I was not as enamoured with the swimming pool as I thought I would be. It needed some refurbishment, and was quite busy, making it difficult to have a decent swim. It was also a bit of a circuitous route getting to it, and the waterfall / massage beds were not in working order.

The main disadvantage of staying in this hotel was its physical location from Dublin city centre. The tram ride, whilst enjoyable for the first time became onerous, and we also found reluctance from taxi drivers to take us to Tallaght, one even wanted 'danger money' as an extra, due to the area being 'unsafe'.

If you are wanting Radisson Blu luxury, this hotel is not for you, but if you want cheap and fairly decent accommodation, and you don't mind the tram ride into the centre of Dublin, then this hotel could work for you.
