OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The Marker is at Grand Canal Dock, a buzzing spot in the South Dublin Docklands with a waterfront, cafés, restaurants and a theatre. It is about 20 minutes' walk to the city centre, ten minutes' walk to the Dart (suburban rail) or less than ten minutes by car to the city centre. The location is ideal for the docklands and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The hotel is away from any main roads so free from traffic noises.

By plane: direct flights to Dublin from Manchester and Birmingham (1 hour), and London (1 hour 15 minutes). It's a 20-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs €28 per day. Book flights to Dublin.
