We stayed in this hotel for the Irish Greyhound Derby Final. It was a perfect location for us, the rooms are all you need, and in general I got a good feeling about the hotel. The bar is lovely and there is a good food menu also. I will be back for sure.

This hotel is in a very pleasant part of Dublin a little away from the centre. The Grand Canal is just around the corner so you can easily stroll along its grassy tree-lined banks. At the junction of Mespil Road and Baggot Street Upper you will find a nice collection of restaurants and shops, including convenience stores. Starbucks is no... More

The Hotel was located in an upscale area of Dublin. It was easy to get to from the airport via the Paddy Wagon service. The room was a good size with modern conveniences. It was very quiet for a good night's rest. Very easy to walk to the center of Dublin - 20 minute stroll. Good breakfast selection and friendly... More

The night Reception Manager Luke was so friendly and helpful, a pleasure to meet! The day staff on check out were also very friendly. The room was beautiful , we were given a room with a balcony as we requested smoking. Overall we were very impressed with the efficiency and professional approach of all staff members.

The rooms were comfortable and very clean, and a good size too. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful with things like getting a light bulb changed while we went for dinner, and providing directions. Our only problem was over breakfast. We didn't pre-book it because the price on lastminute was much cheaper than the price on the hotel's... More

This is a nice hotel in a nice location. 15-20 minute walk to Temple Bar. The hotel is clean and safe. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Made us feel welcome. The restaurant and bar is convenient with a nice menu. This is a no frills hotel; nothing fancy. We would stay here again.

I frequently stay at the Burlington/Hilton & The Mespil Hotel further along the canal, The Grand Hotel would not be as highly regarded/rated as these hotels, however, I found everything about the hotel to be perfect and every bit as good as the others I mentioned,...

I was at a function in the hotel recently and ordered two cokes from the bar. I was given two 200ml bottles of coke and charged €5. I feel this is very poor value for the size considering a can is 330ml.
