“Great”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I stayed here for two nights during a conference. The reception staff were very attentive. I only had lunches as I skipped breakfast both days and we had dinner out on both nights. The lunches were presented in a cafeteria style and were very good indeed. The staff were great here too. The room was spacious and everything worked. The building is a bit of a maze though and I think I used a different route to my room every time. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a good view of the bay

We have just returned from yet another great stay in the Grand Hotel in Malahide. We visit at least once a year so I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed before, however better late than never! This hotel is in a great location overlooking the bay. We normally have had a room in the newer extension, (albeit several years old now) of the Hotel, but this time our room (171) was in the original Hotel building and had a lovely sea view.

The rooms are all well furnished and have comfortable beds. Bathrooms are a good size and very clean, however the bath in our room on this occasion could do with replacing as it had some marks that probably could not be removed by cleaning.

Breakfast is a traditional one with plenty of hot and cold choices on offer. Coast restaurant is where you have breakfast and your evening meal should you be availing of same. (we tend to eat out in Malahide village itself as there are lots of very good affordable restaurants within easy walking distance) My only minor negative comment about the restaurant is that the furnishings are a "bit tired".

All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel as a great place to stay. It is in an ideal location to explore the surrounding areas of, Portmarnock, Bray, Howth etc... and of course Dublin itself which is easily accessible either by Dart or Bus.

Spend last Saturday/Sunday in Malahide. This hotel has grown since my last visit. The hotel is lovely, but this is the very first time that I have had to queue for a seat for breakfast. Then we had an even bigger queue when we went for our hot breakfast. So much so that when we returned to our breakfast table the table had been cleared completely as they thought we had finished. The hotel had put a bill through our hotel room which seem comend as everyone at the counter where arriving with invoices in envelopes etc. I have never witnessed this before in any hotel that I have stayed in. What a waste of paper and envelopes!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new rooms, however, you probably wont have the view of the ocean.

We found the hotel an ideal place to relax. It was quiet and beautifully situated. The food was excellent as was the service. We were able to stroll into the village and take lovely walks along the seafront. We hope to return again in the future.

stayed here recently for one night, a very large hotel, which is very impressive in the lobby and bar, however the rooms are a bit dated and could do with revamping, they are however comfortable and very clean, breakfast the next day was a bit chaotic as a wedding party stayed the night, there was queues for the hot food but it moved quick enough, overall an ok place to stay

Room Tip: corner rooms you will get a view of the main street and the sea/estuary

We stayed for a conference in this large hotel on the coast. There are plenty of places to walk out to for dinner and also the coast road for a breath of fresh air at lunch. The Palm restaurant lunches are a typical buffet style carvery attended by many retired folks having a treat. Breakfast was also a standard affair. There is no air-conditioning even in the executive wing and I had to turn down the radiator in my room. Friendly helpful staff, though the WiFi connection in our room proved difficult to connect to - requiring settings changing on our laptops.

We stayed for 2 nights on the 3rd & 4th Jan following a bad experience at the CityWest before new Year. From the booking process with Gemma through the whole stay we found the staff excellent. Driving up to the hotel is impressive in an olde world way and the new reception to the rear is also spacious and well furnished. The room was enormous (corner room albeit overlooking car park/gym) with 2 double beds a 20 year old TV but that's seems par for the course. Room spotless great beds.

We had an evening meal in the Ryans bar which was relaxed with young families in early on. Breakfast however is the highlight in the Coast restaurant looking out over the inlet. Breakfast is excellent with well laid out tables and very good coffee serving all the usual hot stuff with a good selection of cereals, fresh fruit and pastries/muffins (kids paradise). The leisure centre is used by the local dubs so is kept well the pool was another plus point (don't forget swim caps). I managed to use the gym which was very well equipped with excellent free weights section there are even classes if you get your act together. There are some quite areas in the older part of the hotel at the front with open fires which blends the old and new really well.

We had a walk round Malahide which is a delightful village with more cafes, bars and restaurants than you could get round (no recession here). Great kids park in the castle grounds. We caught the DART into the centre (station 10 mins walk) to watch a show and is an excellent service and as a result I would probably be unlikely to stay in the centre of Dublin again.

Thoroughly recommend we will be back again. It is only 25 mins from Dublin Port and the airport is a lot closer still.

Room Tip: Corner room overlooking car park for size.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us. Malahide does indeed have it all to offer our guests. The village offers so much for our guests to enjoy whether traveling with young families, friends or for business. The boutiques are unique and contemporary, the bars lively and traditional and recreation facilities a plenty. Our location offers guests a wonderful alternative to the city experience as you so rightly point out, yet with the train station on the door step, we are only twenty minutes from the city should you want to pay a visit to some of the tourist attractions. We are delighted to see you enjoyed our restaurant so much, our chef takes great pride in offering fresh, good quality selection for all our guests. We do hope to welcome you back to the hotel for another great stay very soon.

Kind Regards
