Overlooking the 18th-century Grand Canal—a major part of Dublin’s industrial heritage, long since abandoned as anything but a picturesque waterway—this large hotel is a strikingly modern place. As with many hotels in this neighborhood, you can’t escape the looming glass swirl of the Aviva Stadium; the Grand Canal is a particular favorite of sports fans in town for a game, but it’s also a haven for business travelers and tourists looking for a pleasant no-frills place to stay. It wins no awards for style, but it’s cheerful and spotlessly clean, and rooms are large by Dublin standards. Downstairs, the Gasworks bar serves a good pint and is popular with sports fans. The city center is a short journey away by bus or DART. You could even walk if you wanted to work off one of the hearty hotel breakfasts—Trinity College is about 25 minutes away on foot.
