For some reason we had trouble finding the Grand Canal , even directions from a local cabbie still sent us round in circles. The hotel is in a business district , but as such benefits from a DART station literally across the road - 2 stops to the city centre. Our family room was excellent , clean , spacious , with enough TV channels to keep us all ( wife & 15 year old son) happy. Our package came without breakfast , which did look pricey , but given we were only a 15 min walk to Grafton St , there were plenty of cafes to choose from. One benefit of being in a business area - BT was facing us - the Hotel Bar ( the Gasworks) served great pub lunches , with a queue from 1300 onwards. The bar was a bit inpersonal , but allowed our 15 year old in when most Dublin bars wouldn't - and 5 euro cocktails on a Friday night are always a good idea ! Staff were friendly , handy car park , and overall a very good choice from the myriad of hotels Dublin has to offer.
