If you are looking for a last night in Dublin close to the airport stay before you head out in the morning this is it! The airport hotels were all so overpriced and nasty, This truly Grand Hotel on a beautiful lake is in the cutest town of Malahide with such an incredible atmosphere. Restaurants and shops and ohhhhh Gina’s Gelato after dinner. All just a 10 minute walk from hotel. Rooms are lovely and staff was so friendly. Book it.

The Grand is a lovely hotel in a great location. We very much enjoyed the stay in Malahide and the staff was friendly. Unfortunately, our room was on the first floor, over the reception and car park. Being there was no A/C in the room, we would leave the windows open overnight for comfort. The early morning tour busses, diesel fumes, and even a landscaper one morning with a leaf blower were just too much. Sleeping in on our holiday was not possible as all of the action started around 5 am!! We were travelling with another couple and they had a lovely, quiet room on the third floor, overlooking the water. The room was very nice, bath was modern and clean. We had a lunch in the Matt Ryan bar just once. We went in at lunch time and the sign indicated we should wait to be seated. We waited and waited, and waited. We did eventually leave and try again another time. We also had breakfast at the Coast just once. All of the food was fine.

Stayed here to be close to airport and wanted to be able to get to downtown Dublin. Staff provided great assistance in getting to train station, an actual 10 minute walk. Parking was easy at hotel and staff were very friendly. Hotel restaurants very nice but lots of options a short walk from hotel. Beach area near hotel is worth a visit.
