Description: The Grand Central is a former bank renovated to classic proportions. The Grand Central features four central columns set around the central dome of beautifully restored 1920 architecture. It still houses the original safes that were still being used up until recently in it's former role as a bank. Here you find a great atmosphere, lovely cocktails, amazing food & super service.

Enjoy the great beer, didn't eat food looked and smelt good, staff very friendly. Amazing building. A must visit bar on O'Connell Street just before the Spire.

It was a good bar, we only went on a flying visit on a quiet Thursday evening. Drinks prices were average for the area and inside was nicely decorated. Would liked to have seen it on a busy weekend night!

The Grand Central serves an excellent full Irish Breakfast and a fine pint of Guinness. The staff are trained to a very high standard leaving you wanting for nothing but remaining discrete.

Have been here a number of times mainly because of its central location.
The decor is fantastic and it is worth just popping in to see that.
The food is just pub food, because it is cooked at the back of the pub, the smell is everywere, especially at the back.
The toilets are very far down steep stairs and because no one else is around can be a bit scary.

Stopped by for a dinner after a long day. The food was ok, but not anywhere near the best meal we had in Dublin. The decor was lovely and the staff was standard. All in all, nothing really made this place stand out.
