Planning a city break to Dublin’s fair city? Make Maldron Hotel Newlands Cross your base while you go out and explore your surroundings. Located in the west of Dublin, the hotel is outside of the hustle of bustle of the city but close to major public transport links that makes it the most convenient hotel to stay in during your break away.
We are located about a 20 minute drive from Dublin Airport, just head southbound on the M50 and merge with the N7 and the hotel is located at exit 1A. If you’re flying into Ireland for your Dublin City break, catch the Airport Hopper bus from Dublin Airport (take the Tallaght route), which stops directly across the road from the hotel.
Getting from the hotel to Dublin City Centre, the Red Cow Luas stop, Dublin’s light rail system, is a 15 minute walk from the hotel and the 13 and 69 Dublin Bus stop is only 5 minutes away from the hotel. Both are sure to get you safely into the heart of Dublin.
