Dublin really has something for everyone. If you are having a break with the girls, your family or your loved one, there is so much to do see and do in Dublin - it won’t disappoint.


Maldron Hotel Pearse Street location is perfect for exploring all the sights and sounds that Dublin city centre has to offer. There are great restaurants, pubs, museums, parks, attractions for the children and a bus tour is a great way to orientate yourself with this vibrant city.

Some of our favourites are:

St Stephen’s Green

they say that the best things in life are free! St Stephen’s Green is located about 10 minute walk (with children) from Maldron Hotel Pearse Street. Adults will be charmed by the stunning Victorian park in the city centre whilst kids will love the playground and duckpond. Watch out for free outdoor lunchtime concerts in the summertime.
