The Grand Hotel is a great place to relax.

Posted 02-Aug-2015
Pros: The ambience, the setting & the staff.
Cons: The TVs in some rooms should be replaced.
Location: Malahide is a lovely village with so many great places to eat. Make sure to visit Malahide Castle and the Avoca Cafe there.
The Grand Hotel in Malahide has a character all of its own, fusing its original interior with a modern extension which allows it to maintain its charm. We have been coming here for years and we really enjoy the setting. We went recently for our 40th wedding anniversary and were treated very well with a personalised card and chocolates left in our room. The only negative aspect was the TV in the room which was rather ancient and only picked up a limited number of channels - no UTV which was disappointing for my wife who wanted to watch some of the 'soaps' after dinner before we headed off for a walk. Malahide is a beautiful little village and The Grand is an hotel which enriches the quality of life in that village - make sure you go and visit.

Looks to have been recently updated

Posted 30-Jun-2015
Pros: Location and View. Staff was very friendly and Helpful
Location: There is a castle and park within walking distance, and the town has a lot of shops and Pubs.
This was an older Hotel that has been updated, It Looks really nice and had a wonderful view of the Harbor. The Room was small but comfortable. We did not dine there, but the dining room looked really nice. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay on a return visit. It is about 15 minutes to the Airport.

The hotel was over priced for what i got. I must have paid for the view of the bay. The bed what uncomfortable and the room was fairly small.

Check in staff we're amazing. Night staff appalling. Room is in serious need of upgrading. Very disappointed in the room. Very noisey. Could hear cleaning staff first thing in the morning. Our room was near the front door and the noise of people outside was infuriating
