Decent accomodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel is a in the Ballsbridge area. It is within walking distance of the centre but it is also just round the corner from a bus stop which is really handy.
The hotel itself was very comfortable and well maintained. The breakfast was good serving cereal, toast, juice, pastries and a cooked breakfast.
The staff were very helpful and also polite.

The hotel bar is also a pub - The Gasworks - which is open to the public and serves good food.
The School House Hotel is just around the corner too so there is no need to go drinking in the city centre if you dont want to.

Directions: From the airport get the aircoach to the School House Hotel. The Grand Canal hotel is behind the School House.

Milk chilling tip

If you have no fridge in your room and you need extra milk 'cos those little complimentary things aren't enough - buy your own and leave it on the window ledge outside! (btw - this only works from Oct-April)

Unique Quality: The window opened just wide enough to slip a small carton of milk through.

Directions: Ballsbridge area

Unfortunately our view wasn't of the Grand Canal itself but of the EU and the Irish flag. One look at those flags in the morning told me if I needed to put on the thermals before venturing outside.

At least it didn't rain!

Directions: Ballsbridge

The Accommodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 17, 2005

It was comfy and clean and warm. We got a special deal on this hotel with Expedia.co.uk but normally this room would be 200Euro per night. Oh and breakfast is not included. There is a very nice restaurant, the *Ulysses*, and breakfast is 8.50Euro for the continental and 12Euro for the full Irish brekky.

Breakfast times are 7am-11am and the restaurant is open 6pm-11pm.

It's about a 15 minute walk to Grafton Street from the hotel.

Unique Quality: The McEniff is a three star hotel which opened in February 2004.

Directions: Ballsbridge

A little walk will be good for us......!

Nice hotel on the Grand Canal (we didn't have a view). It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the centre. The Grand Canal Dock DART station is just across the road. This is the old "docklands" area of Dublin. There's hardly any activity now but there are a lot of trendy apartments and cafes and pubs and office blocks. At the other end is the Landsdowne Road Football Stadium.

Unique Quality: There wasn't anything specifically unique about this place. The room was clean, comfortable, had tea/coffee making facilities and had wireless internet and digital TV.
