The Grand Canal Hotel is close enough to walk to the city centre and also close to the Aviva Stadium and the RDS. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very helpful. The reservations team are particularly helpful and knowledgeable.

A nice comfortable Hotel with a good range of facilities and friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast buffet.We chose the location because we were exploring the Dublin canals and docks, so, perfect for that.

This is a good enough hotel although it's pretty much like all the others. We had an executive room and I expected something a bit better than the standard of the Maldrons or Cassidy's.

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Canal Hotel with our baby for 3 nights and had an enjoyable stay. The room was nice and quiet thanks to the 2 double glazing windows! However on Saturday night we could hear the music from the bar until 2AM even though we were on the third floor. I don't get why...

Hello Thanks for the comments and glad you all enjoyed your stay. We would have to agree The Grand Canal Dock area is lovely during the summer and is only a few minutes walk from the hotel. The Bord Gais Energy theatre is there along with some great restaurants and bars. Well worth checking out. The music in the bar...
