 "More than a 3 star"
This is my 5th stay at the GC Dublin, my stay was primarily to get easy access to the aviva stadium to see rihanna so it was perfect and if the weather permits its a 20 min walk to Dublin CC too. I can't praise the staff enough for making every effort to ensure your stay is both comfortable and easy, Catherine the front of desk manager is particularly spectacular to say the least as nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are way more than 3 star and I hope in the next hotel inspection they get the 4th star as they deserve. Thank you guys see you again soon :)

 "just right"
Stayed during November when we went to see a show, the staff were lovely, the rooms were comfortable and we were very pleased with everything! The bed was very comfy, and a good size. The room had plenty of space but was very warm, we turned off the radiator and opened a window. The breakfast the next day was terrific, everything cooked nicely, plenty of choice and the dining room was clean and comfortable.We will definatly stay here again, for the price we paid we got absolute value for money!On site parking made life much eaiser, and the staff were helpful, friendly and made us feel like we were very important! Regardless of price or location good staff make all the difference when choosing a service, and this hotel has staff to be proud of.

 "3 generations of women in Dublin"
Having stayed in several B&Bs across west and south Ireland, the modern, comfortable and conveniently located Grand Canal was wonderful. The staff were helpful and the beds comfortable. Good bathroom and quiet, as compared to much lodging in the city.

 "Very comfortable bed"
Pros: Very comfortable bed.
Cons: The music in bar was far too loud and it was difficult to relax with a drink and relax in foyer area due to terribly loud music coming from bar area. definitely a put-off . relaxed conversation was not an option, even though i wanted to relax after a day's work.i would have reservations about staying there again because of it. no need for blowing off visitor's ears. a little bit of consideration for paying guests needed.

 "Reception staff were very helpful and welcoming"
Pros: Reception staff were very helpful and welcoming.
room and facilities in the room very good.
Cons: Room was not ready when arrived at 2.30pm, waited an hour. booked room for 3 people, website stated double bed plus 2 single beds. room had double plus 1 single bed and was made up for 2 people. as we were 3 mature ladies we preferred our own beds. staff could not change 1st night but arranged triple room 2nd night and apologised saying the website got it wrong. was very cold 2nd night, heating not on. reception said heating on timer will go on at 5pm. was not happy as we were going to a concert and had to get ready in cold but water was hot. was freezing in the night, we had extra blanket put in room.
