Dublin City Break

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.

Hotel Location

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.

Things to do in Dublin

Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin is the oldest university in Ireland and was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. The campus is home to The Book of Kells which is Ireland’s oldest manuscript and was beautifully crafted during the 9th century.

After a day of exploring Dublin or going on a shopping spree, don’t forget to pay a visit to Temple Bar, right in the heart of Dublin, to soak up the atmosphere and witness traditional Irish music and dancers all while enjoying a pint of the “black stuff”. Walk down the famous cobbles and immerse yourself in Irish culture.


There are four national museums in Dublin and they are all free to visit. See the origins of Dublin at the National Museum of Ireland or see how many species of animals you can name at the Natural History Museum where you can find over 10,000 preserved species from around the globe.


Enjoy a day of retail therapy along Dublin’s most popular shopping street, Grafton Street.
