Grand Canal Vacation Packages
If you are staying in Grand Canal, why not spend a day exploring nearby areas, like Temple Bar, Dublin and Sandymount.
Grand Canal has plenty of cultural attractions within easy reach that make great places to visit. Spend a while viewing the exhibits at the National Museum of Natural History, the Book of Kells and Button Factory. Book in for a lively show at the Abbey Theatre, the Gaiety Theatre and Vicar Street. If you enjoy art, browse the collections at the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery of Modern Art, the Chester Beatty Library and Gallery of Oriental Art and the National Gallery of Ireland at Merrion Square.
When it’s time escape the city, plan a trip to the nearby outdoor areas. Breathe in the fresh air, skim rocks in the shallows and catch some sunshine at nearby Sandymount Beach. When you need a little time out, visit Herbert Park, Ringsend Park and the Sean Moore Park, one of the places where families can enjoy some time outdoors.
While you are here, stop at the nearby local attractions such as The Spire, the Iveagh Gardens and the Garden of Remembrance. These spots are a magnet for travellers from all over the world. For those who enjoy history, the region’s past has been beautifully preserved at Dublin Castle and Clontarf Castle. Visitors with a passion for religious history will appreciate the hallowed atmosphere at the St. Michan's Church, the St. Audeon's Church and the John's Lane Augustinian Church.
Hunt down a bargain, stock up on food or just window shop at nearby shopping hotspots such as Powerscourt Townhouse, the Jervis Shopping Center and the Brown Thomas Flagship Store.
Those looking for sporting action can cheer on local heroes the Ireland national rugby union team rugby union team and the Republic of Ireland national football team soccer team at Aviva Stadium, the sporting heart and soul of the city. After the game, follow local sports fans to the nearby pubs to either celebrate, or commiserate, depending on the score.
At the end of a busy day taking in the sights around Grand Canal, stay the night at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. The Best Western Plus Academy Plaza Hotel, the Croke Park Hotel and the Gresham Hotel are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
