Grand Canal Hotel Dublin
Very Good8.0
Nice hotel, friendly staff and good value
Nice hotel in lovely location. Easy walk to Bord Gais théâtre. Everything was good apart from our room was a little tired looking and smelled a bit musty. It was clean though and perfectly comfortable. The shower was great and the bathroom clean with plenty of toiletries. Nice reception area with a bar and cafe. The breakfast was really good, especially liked the youghurt smoothie drink and the homemade yoghurt with granola and fruit. You could make fresh pancakes as well, perfect for kids.

A very good hotel
A really well run and appointed hotel. Room large, comfy and very clean; breakfast and bar excellent; very friendly and helpful staff. The only drawback is its distance from the City Centre and lack of convenient public transport - the Dart (local train) has a local station but nearest city centre drop off is not very convenient for most tourist destinations. But, all in all, a very nice stay and we would rebook if returning to Dublin.

Grand Canal Hotel Dublin
Great hotel with good service
Great hotel, Great location for the rugby which is one of the reasons we were there. Meeting family and friends was also the main reason for the visit. Great bar downstairs (Gasworks). Breakfast was fab and the service could not be faulted. Check in and out was ok and all in all it was a great stay.
