Dublin Activities

Here at the Glenroyal Hotel in Maynooth, we are often told our rail and bus links are exceptional for getting into the city. The Maynooth Train Station and local bus stops is across the road from the hotel. Here are some great Dublin Attractions you can visit on your day out:


Croke Park:

Whether, you're going for a concert or sporting event, Croke Park is ranked as one of the best things to do in Dublin. Some of the highlights include taking a seat in the VIP area, getting a birds-eye view from the media centre, sneaking a peek inside the dressing rooms, and of course, walking in the footsteps of gaelic games legends as you go pitchside through the players’ tunnel!



Dublin Zoo:

"The hotel is conveniently located, near the University. The local bus stop for many buses is right across the street and the train station is a 5-minute walk. We were able to go everywhere we needed by bus or train, including into central Ireland or Dublin." - StephenB4665 via Trip Advisor
