Tara Towers Site Welcomes the New Maldron Hotel, Dublin 4

The completed Maldron Hotel in Dublin 4 has recently opened their doors to welcome guests! The four- star hotel is situated on the site of the former Tara Towers Hotel on Merrion Road, Dublin 4.

Dalata Hotel Group, the largest hotel operator in the Republic, purchased the building for €13.2 million in 2016. In 2017, Dublin City council granted the hotel group planning approval for an estimated €51 million mix-use development.

The Dublin 4 scheme includes a four-star Maldron hotel with 140 rooms, a restaurant, bar, and meeting facilities. The site is also home to 57 apartments and a basement car park.

With stunning views across Dublin bay and located just a short DART ride into the city’s centre, the new hotel is set up well to become a popular base point for visitors to Dublin City. The hotel has so far had the pleasure of hosting the 2022 Roses of Tralee among other guests during their first few weeks of opening.

CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau liaised with architects, MOLA architecture to produce a series of 3D planning and marketing solutions of the development. 3D Design Bureau produced verified view montages and presentation photomontages which were submitted as part of the planning application to Dublin City Council.
