Our meeting spaces are quite different.
All 700 m² of our meeting space is contained conveniently on the ground floor, adjacent to our main reception area and with private street access. We have nine meeting rooms with capacities ranging from 10 to 250, all our rooms are kitted out to the highest specifications, so that you can work faster and smarter. We have everything you’d expect, from video conferencing to LCD drop-down screens and projectors. All our technology is managed discreetly to ensure minimum intrusion.
Our largest function space, The Marker Suite, mirrors the Marker’s unique architectural features. It has a striking ceiling which floats freely, with no columns to obstruct the natural flow of the room.
Most of our breakout rooms boast natural daylight, looking out onto Chimney Park, an iconic landmark and a surprising hidden treasure, tucked into the contrasting urban landscape. Three of our rooms have direct own-door access to Chimney Park, giving you more flexibility and scope regarding your event mechanics.
Our Business Centre is your business ‘home from home’ with fax, photocopying and internet facilities.
Complimentary Wi-Fi (500mb uncontended) throughout the meeting space. For more information on our wi-fi facilities please click here.
The rich history of the Grand Canal is celebrated in the names of our meeting rooms, click on the links below to find out more information about each of our spaces:
- The Marker Suite: Named after the final cast iron marker which denoted the end of the journey for the weary traveller.
- The Carnac: One of the Grand Canal’s many bridges
- The Hamilton: In memory of Sir William Rowan Hamilton who realised the formula for quaternions while taking a stroll along the Royal Canal with his wife.
- The Omer: Named after Thomas Omer, who was pivotal in the planning and construction of the Grand Canal.
- The Broadstone: A nod to one of the most well-known areas of Dublin. Very few people even know where it is today, but this area was home to one of the major transport hubs in 19th century Dublin.
- The Hibernia: The SS Hibernia carried passengers and freight each night from Holyhead in Wales, to Dublin’s North Wall, and each day to Kingstown on behalf of the London & North Western Railway Company.
- The Aqueduct: Named after Foster’s Aqueduct, where the canal crossed Constitution Hill via an aqueduct.
- The Shannon: The River Shannon was seen as the Gateway to the West. It was almost too much to contemplate that this should be linked to Dublin. Yet The Grand Canal Company did just that. Starting in 1790, construction was finally completed in 1817. The Grand Canal starts at the River Liffey in the Grand Canal Dock and finishes 131 kilometres away, at Shannon Harbour in County Offaly.
