Great staff and welcome on arrival. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with a very substantial breakfast in the morning. Very handy to where my meeting was and parking rates are very reasonable. Thanks I will be back again soon.

Our stay at The Grand Canal hotel was without any problems. We used it for a business stay due to a meeting in the area the following morning. Our meeting ran over but staff had no issue in validating our parking. Nice hotel. Will definitely stay here again

Terrific hotel and good value. Rooms were very clean and beds were very comfortable. This hotel is a bit of a walk or cab ride to city central. Beautiful reception area and rooms were well appointed. We only stayed one night passing through Dublin so we weren't there very long to check out the amenities. Lovely hotel and friendly staff.

I stayed at the Grand Canal for 2 nights again this year for business meetings at a nearby office (not Google!) and once again had a very nice stay. Rooms are large and clean, buffet breakfast is excellent, adjoining pub is fun too, but certainly didn't hear any noise from it at night, it's a very quiet area. All the... More

Perfect if you are going to visit one of the big companies that is just across the road and also if you are going to the 3arena. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff Does provide a shuttle bus to/from the airport Connected to the bar/restaurant with delicious fish and chips

I don't know who else would use this hotel apart from the people doing business with Google (whose office is right across the road), but for those people it's a clean and quiet place to get some rest overnight.

The perfect hotel to stay in if you're going to a concert at the 3arena , or a match at the aviva. The staff were wonderfully helpful, and provided us with taxis, extras for our room, a shuttle us service was available for the concert. I found the young American receptionist particularly friendly and helpful, and was delighted with the... More

I stayed for 1 night with booking in couple days before. Price jumped from ~90 EUR (book in advance) to ~200 EUR, what makes value for money low. However it's good 3* hotel with a quiet room facing backyard. I heard no noise, sleep quality - very good.
