Great nights stay

We were down in dublin for eater rising weekend so expected it to be busy. The staff were great though and we even had breakfast in bed which was delivered promptly on time. Also room service was very quick when we came back from our night out. No complaints with this hotel a all. Great food in a nice restaurant. This was our 3rd time staying here so that tells you that we think it's great. Plus the dart (train) is literally just around corner for anywhere u want to go. Great hotel

A hidden gem!

For the money, this was an ideal hotel. I walked everywhere - Temple Bar area, 3Arena, the works. Everything was roughly 15-20 minutes. The staff was great. The rooms were great. And The Gasworks Pub - a great spot to end my nights. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location,a fine hotel

We had previously booked another hotel,but our son recommended otherwise. We were able to change to the well located Grand Canal Hotel. It is perhaps a mile to Grafton Street etc through very nice parts of the city(St. Stephen's Green,The Grand Canal). The interior of the hotel is great & it has great parking underneath the hotel which features wide enough spaces and passages so I felt relatively comfortable maneuvering our rental car in and out. It is also easy accesss from the highway(N7) & the airport.I give this hotel my hearty endorsement.

Two night stay at the Grand Canal Hotel

Had a look around at lots of different hotels and the Grand Canal came out as one of the cheapest but also not too far away from the main attractions. The room was big and was modern, had all the bits you needed! Taxi's are around €8 to the centre from the hotel which isn't bad at all, it took us around 25 minutes to walk to temple bar from the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great St.Pattys Trip

Overall for the price it was a great stay and the staff was amazing ! Wi-fi was a little frustrating at times. It's not right in the center of things but not that far away from great bars. Location isn't the best but not expensive as the hotels right where all the action is
