I stayed here one night. It seemed to be a busy hotel with holiday events, therefore very crowded. It was a nice hotel; not a great location since it was outside of the city center. Nothing fancy in the rooms. I would stay here again if I was passing through Dublin, but not if I was going to spend more...

I've stayed here twice for a total of a month, I travel to dublin for business and this is near the office so it's very convenient. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. The rooms are OK, beds are comfortable enough. The restaurant has some great dishes although it's not cheap.

We were booked at the Grand Canal with our tour group. The room seemed fine until we sat on the beds. They were hard on the top, but then sank in. The twin bed was the worst of the two, we used it to store our suitcases only. Our 2nd and last night we hoped for a good night's sleep...

We do make every effort to allocate groups together but with a number of different booking options available it is not always possible to recognise groups. The manager on duty that night made...

Booked this hotel based on the fact it was close to Bord Gais Theatre, it is indeed a short walk, and the hotel provides car parking, which is very convenient, and free until 1pm the following day, so we took advantage of this and walked to the city centre for a bit of shopping the next day. The rooms were...

Stay here for work but its a great base for those wanting to visit Dublin. Rooms are clean and spacious, staff are friendly and you cannot beat the location.

Got a deal for a room, tickets to Derren Brown, two course meal and breakfast the nest morning. I was shocked when I seen how big the room was, it was lovely and clean, very spacious.

We chose the Grand Canal Hotel for its proximity to the Aviva Stadium as we were there to see Ireland vs Italy; however the convenience of this hotel for walking into Dublin city centre and the helpful staff made us want to return again.

Much better than a 3 star, we were up graded straight away, room was excellent, the breakfast was fantastic. I would highly recommend this hotel.the staff behind the gasworks bar, so helpful.
