Our Story

History was made in 1972 when the Original Airport Hotel in Ireland opened, now know as Maldron Hotel Dublin Airport part of Dalata Hotel Group plc

June 1972 was an evolving time at Dublin Airport when a brand-new Terminal was opened to cope with the increased passenger demand.

Shortly afterwards, the Dublin International Hotel opened its doors to welcome passengers taking off or touching down at Dublin Airport. At the time, the hotel was part of the Trusthouse Forte Hotel Group having been designed by award winning architect Sam Stepheson of Stephenson Gibney & Associates.

Over the past 50 years, 4.5 million guests have enjoyed a warm welcome to the hotel including many Irish and International sporting hero’s, the crew of US Air Force 1 back in the 1990’s, as well as many famous religious and political figures. Not forgetting Oscar Winning Actors, famous TV personalities, Music greats and past Irish Presidents.

All this would not be possible without the amazing team of staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the years to welcome back familiar faces and those not so familiar to the hotel. Some amazing careers in hospitality have been enjoyed at the hotel by many long-term employees, some of whom have recommended family members to join them in working at the hotel.

It’s true to say 1972-2022 has seen many developments however 50 years on, the team at the hotel still pride themselves on providing first class service to all guests, just like their inspirational predecessors who were part of the original opening team and are pictured above.

Today, Maldron Hotel Dublin Airport remains the closest hotel to Dublin Airport Terminal and provides great options for those wishing to book an overnight stay prior to an early departure with onsite car parking available at a supplement whilst overseas
