Best way of getting here from the airport that can be used with the Dublin leap card?
With leap card u can use just airlink 747 and get off at the Convention cetre then is about 20 minutes walk to the hotel. If u don't use leap card use a Aircoach 703 or 702 running every 15 minutes from Airport it is around 8 € 1 way and get off at the Schoolhouse hotel from there is a short walk (5minues) to the Grand Canal hotel. 😊

I think NYE is at Custom House? If so, I would try Il Vicoletto Italian in Temple Bar - it's very small so you will have to book but it's fantastic. Before your meal, go to the Vintage Cocktail Club the next street over - again you'll have to book a table but totally worth the effort!!
