I'm a regular business traveller to Dublin and frequently stay at the Maldron Smithfield. The hotel is located right on Smithfield Square, next to the LUAS and opposite the Jameson Distillery. It is between the Four Courts and the Criminal Courts at parkgate Street, so if you're in the legal field the location couldn't be better as it's an easy walk to either.
The staff are extremely friendly and accomodating and have helped me in the past with early check in or late checkouts if I have needed them.
There is a car park in the basement that charges a flat fee per 24 hour period and you're so close to the LUAS and buses you won't need your car. it's a ten minute walk from Temple bar if you go out in the evening for dinner/drinks but as with every big city, be careful about walking home alone (this is NOT a Dublin problem - it's a big city problem!)
Breakfast is standard fare but the one thing I like about it is that they will cook your eggs any style to order whilst you help yourself to the rest of the buffet.
Rooms are modern and bright and always clean, as are the hallways and reception area. The restaurant menu hasn't tempted me in for dinner yet, but room service is good quality and hot.
There is a superb deli/grocery/coffee shop/wine shop called "Fresh" right nest to the hotel. A perfect place for lunch, snacks or any personal items you need (toiletries etc). Their salad bar is divine.
