The Grand Canal Hotel in Dublin is a very comfortable hotel in which you can stay perfect for a reasonable price. We have stayed here for a citytrip to Dublin and it was very nice. The employees of the hotel are very nice and are willing to help you with everything! The rooms in the hotel are big and you have enough space to sleep, live and just relax. The bathroom is simple but just what you need for a citytrip.
The Grand Canal Hotel has also a restaurant but that isn't that great as we thought. You can drink a bear and watch sports but for the food you have to wait long and it's is not of a culinairy highstandard as we are used to in restaurants in Holland.
The Grand Canal Hotel also has breakfast in the morning. The breakfast is perfect and just what you need in the morning. You just pay € 9,95 per person.
To discover the city you can take a taxi which are most of the day waiting in front of the hotel, but you can also let the hotel staff call a taxi. If you want to walk it is at least a 15 minute walk, with 15 minutes you are at the beginning of the city centre, do you want further into the city centre it is more than a 15 minute walk.
When you arrive at Dublin Airport you see the airport coaches everywhere which take you into the city. Those cost you 7 euro's per person. We chose to take the bus which stops at the fron of the hotel and only cost you 4 euro's per person. If you walk further more you can find this green busses. If you choose to go with the more expensive aircoach, please check if it goes to School House hotel (this is the hotel at the other street and where you have to hop off to walk to the Grand Canal Hotel). We had the wrong bus (both of the busses go to the city centre and neither of them say what the difference is). When stepping out of the bus you go like a 50 meters to the canal and then to the right and than a 100 meter walk and to te right and than like another 50 minutes and you're standing in front of the Grand Canal hotel.
