Part of a small Irish hotel chain, the Maldron Smithfield is a good midpriced option, a stone’s throw from the Old Jameson Distillery and a 10-minute walk from St. Michan’s Church. The guest rooms are modern and comfortable, with good soundproofing. Go for an upper-floor room with a balcony if you can; the view across the low-slung skyline of Dublin’s Northside is lovely, particularly at sunrise and sunset. The onsite restaurant and bar have fairly limited offerings, but right outside, around Smithfield Square, are several bars and restaurants. Alternatively, the front desk can order you a pizza from a local delivery company (there’s a menu in your room; pay in cash). While you’re here, you should definitely visit the Cobblestones (see p. ###), probably the best pub in Dublin for live traditional music, and less than 30 seconds from the hotel's front door (turn left and you’re facing it, right next to the colorful mural).
