The hotel was purchased in 1979 by Liam and Ann Cusack and restored to its former gracious grandeur, combining modern comfort with old world charm and elegance.

The Granville provides luxurious and spacious accommodation, designed with your comfort in mind. Stained glass, tapestries, and abundant wood panelling lend to the charm of the Granville.

The Granville Hotel has hosted many historic figures in its history and was the birthplace of Thomas Francis Meagher who first flew the Irish Tricolour in Waterford before joining the 69th Regiment in the American Civil War, forming the Irish Brigade and becoming Brigadier General. Our Bar in the hotel is named in his honour.

Our Bianconi Restaurant is named after Charles Bianconi who set up Ireland’s first public transport system from the Granville Hotel and was known as the ‘King of Irish Roads’.
