We were just in Maynooth for one overnight. Attending a concert at the Glen Royal Hotel. Their rooms were more than we wished to spend. We took three rooms at this conference center. It took just a few minutes to get our bearings, but it turned out to be a great choice! Close walk to everything (including our concert) and a short thirty minute taxi ride to the airport the next morning. Use the taxi service that they recommend with cards at reception.

Room tip: Try for a room with ensuite bath. Some have toilet/shower down the hall. One of our three rooms was like that and it wasn't a bother.

For only staying in the town for one night I can't complain, it is a small quiet town that doesn't boast much- it has a few quaint places and a lot of history based on the time that you visit (most attractions are seasonal). The rooms are lovely, a mix of modern and vintage, very easily accessible from local vicinities. Very reasonable for the price. Lovely place to visit!!

What an absolutely fabulous find !

Yes, accommodation ticks all the boxes .... warm, clean, wifi etc ..... BUT ....

WOW, WOW and double WOW / WOW !!!

What sets it apart from everywhere else .... is the setting ..... it is magical !!
Glorious buildings, church on site, and (muffled) bells pealing every 1/4 hour ....
Absolutely stunning .... and all for 30 euro a night for a single room ! ...bargain !

Directions to the accommodation can be dodgy .... South Campus .... the sign in town was pointing to North Campus, and South Campus took me to a Health Care Centre.
Two phone calls and I found it ..... I took a picture of the sign ... it wasn't me being dippy !
However, next day ... the sign was pointing the right way .... either someone had moved it around ... or it 'blows in the wind' ! Better directions are ... head for the castle, keep castle on your right, and drive straight ahead !! Reception is under the archway on the left !

Fabulous location if you are exploring Trim, Hill of Tara etc, and want to escape the madness of Dublin ....

I have lived in Maynooth for Many years and only recently discoverd this place.
I have passed this place countless times but had not until recently ventured in.
This is a place is an Oasis of Calm (out of term time) , The University was originally a seminary and the grounds are magnificent maze of tranquil walks in formal gardens.
The buildings are gothic and its so unexpected in a small rural town.
It would be easy to pass by and not notice this place as its for the most part hidden from view. Definitely worth a visit on your way west from Dublin.

I stayed here to attend a Black Sabbath concert and as I didn't want to spend in excess of €100 for a room where I would just be crashing for a few hours. The check-in receptionist was lovely and very friendly and helpful. The rooms are situated in St Patrick's College (the seminary) and you must keep in mind you will be in the same building as the priests and seminarians so you need to be respectful of that. I booked a single room which was on the top floor facing the rear of the building. The room was perfectly clean with very comfortable single bed, desk & chair, wash basin and small but adequate wardrobe. It had a main ceiling light and a small shaving light both controlled by switches inside the room door. Tea/coffee facilities are provided in room which was very welcome when I arrived back in from a freezing cold night. The room is very well heated by a radiator and has a window which does open (so many hotels you can't do this anymore). The only downside was noise - the rooms have been subdivided from what were originally dormitories so they don't have solid walls only stud partitions which means you can hear every movement and sound.

All in all the rooms are basic but perfectly clean and functional and for €33 for the night I'm happy. Would definitely use again.

One thing though - you have to be in by 1am or you're locked out.
