Stayed at the Grand Canal with my sisters and Mum for the Robbie Williams Concert on June 14, we had a great time. Arrived at the hotel at 3pm to find the Gasworks bar buzzing with lots of ladies for the concert. Our room was on the 4th floor and was absolutely smashing, Flat panel TV, complimentary water and chocolates on the bed! Plus Fluffy dressing gowns to wrap ourselves in. We headed down to the bar for something to eat, I had the Thai Green Curry which was delicious washed down by a glass or two of wine. Bar staff very nice and chatty, enjoyed the atmosphere too I think. Or maybe all the good looking ladies in the bar! Off we went to the concert which is only 5 mins walk from the hotel, it was lashing rain though on the walk but it didn't damper our spirits. We returned to the hotel at about 11.30 and went to the bar which was very very busy and very uncomfortable, but this was to be expected as it was the nearest hotel after the concert. We took our drinks to the lobby and sat there in comfort. Had a great sleep in the beds. The breakfast was fab, I don't get how you couldn't have enjoyed it as the food was freshly cooked, there was everything on the menu no matter what your taste was. We have nothing but praise for the hotel, everything was A1. A big bonus also was the fact that the car park was free to overnight residents which for me after driving from Limerick, was great for Dublin City where the cost can be very expensive. We hope to come again for a Republic of Ireland Soccer match in October so must get on again to book soon........THank you to all at the hotel for a wonderful stay.
