Grand Canal Hotel Dublin's excellent location in Georgian Dublin in the affluent Ballsbridge area makes the hotel the perfect place to discover Dublin. The City centre and Trinity College are accessible on foot in 15 minutes as well as Grafton Street, which offers the very best of international shopping. The DART station ‘Grand Canal Dock’ is across the road, which is ideal for daytrips to the sea side of Dublin (beach, cliff walks, etc.)
