The Granville Hotel is iconic in Waterford. Situated at the centre of the quay in Waterford City, its bustling shopping district is right behind the hotel and the historic Viking Triangle is just a stone's throw away!

Whether you are visiting to shop Waterford’s beautiful selection of Irish, independent and high-street stores, immerse yourself in the history and culture of Ireland’s oldest city, cycle the award winning Waterford Greenway or explore some of Co. Waterford’s 52 beautiful beaches along the copper coast, the Granville Hotel is a perfect base.

Steeped in warmth and old world charm, each of the bedrooms is uniquely decorated, and the perfect place to rest your head after a fine meal in the award winning Bianconi Restaurant and drinks from the Whiskey & Gin wall in the Thomas Francis Meagher Bar.

The Granville Hotel Porridge Experience is something to savour the next morning, too. And you’ll be spoiled for choice with the options on their award winning breakfast menu.
