Good place but a bit of a walk to city center. There are options to get there but it is an added hassle. Gasworks next door is a great pub. In the end, it really depends on why you ended up at Grand Canal Hotel....More

We recently stayed in this hotel during our trip to Dublin. Unfortunately there was a heatwave during our stay and to our dismay it turned out that the rooms were not air conditioned. We were provided with a fan but it didn't really help much....More

Easy & interesting walk to town which is also most likely the quickest way to get there (depending on traffic). Couple of euro by bus and perhaps €7/8 by taxi. Hope this helps!

Best getting the Luas from Heuston to Connolly and then the Dart to Grand Canal Dock Station: just across the road from the Hotel.
