We received a warm Irish welcome at The Dylan. We had a fabulous spacious room with a very comfortable bed. The staff were all friendly and determined to ensure guests had a happy stay. The restaurant served us a great breakfast too. Special thanks to Colin for the chocolate cup cakes - the perfect treat...

Room Tip: Rooms all individual. Upgrade if you can for even more space and luxuries...

This hotel is on a quiet side street in the Dublin 4 area. The decor is very modern/artsy. The rooms are surprisingly large by European standards. They have a well known chef and a nice menu in the restaurant. You can walk to most popular areas, although a bit of a hike at times. Twice our taxi drivers had a little trouble finding it so provide them with nearby cross streets. Loved the neighborhood.

Room Tip: We booked a Style King room and were very happy with it.

We stayed at the Dylan for a weekend in March and had a really nice time. Unfortunately, there were a couple of problems that marred things a little but first the good points. The Dylan is a nicely converted Victorian building in a nice part of Dublin – a pleasant walk from the centre with plenty of interesting pubs and restaurants on the way. It is very much a designer hotel with individually styled chic bedrooms and very modish public areas. The bar and restaurant areas are both stylish and inviting. In fact, despite being very close to some of Dublin’s very interesting pubs, the bar was actually a place you could easily find yourself wanting to spend time in – in contrast to many hotel bars that we have come across. We did not have dinner at the hotel but the breakfast was amongst the best that I have ever had anywhere.
With so many good points, I almost feel churlish mentioning the bad ones but there were two to mention. First of all, the areas just outside the door to the room had a really bad damp smell that penetrated into the entrance to the room. We told the management straight away but they were unable to do anything about it. We were offered another room but we opted to stay in the original one as it was a bit bigger and we liked the decor. Being an old building, I suspect that there was a problem with the guttering. Whatever it was, it needs sorting out. Second, we were woken up early on the Sunday morning by very (and I mean very) loud music from the next room. We phoned reception and they managed to stop it but our sleep had been disturbed by then.
So there you are. It is very stylish. We had a nice stay but it could have been nicer. That said, the management reacted when we complained but we would rather not have had to complain in the first place and the smell problem was so bad that it could not have just been a recent occurrence.

We stayed recently in this gorgeous hotel as a treat for myself and my husband, our first child free break in years..!!everything was exceptional from the warm welcome to the beautiful room and food in their restaurant was sublime. A bit pricey but worth every penny because it was top class.

The Dylan hotel is a little gem of a hotel. Wonderful location.Walking distance to the core of Dublin but in a real neighbourhood,it Allows the visitor to feel they are living in Dublin. The staff are friendly and helpful,lovely breakfasts too.
It is also close to shops and other eating establishments. Would definitely choose to stay at the Dylan on my next visit to Dublin

I was in Dublin on business 2 weeks ago and decided to treat myself to a stay in The 5 star Dylan hotel. I had been to the hotel before but not for dinner or overnight. I asked for an early check in & my room was ready when I arrived. Valet parking not bad value at €20 for 24 hours.
Small bedroom but very stylish and beautifully decorated. Very comfy bed but the bathroom was a little on the small side! Had a really beautiful dinner that evening, an absolute feast for the eyes & the palate, and a fabulous wine list too.
It was expensive but it was worth it. The bar, ante rooms & outdoor terraces are so plush, relaxing & really romantic. I can't wait to stay at the Dylan hotel again soon!

A stunning, stylish and elegant gem tucked away in a lovely location.
The service was nothing less than excellent from all the hotel staff.
Breakfast was perfect ( a glass of bubbles added the perfect touch).
The evening meal was delicious with very attentive staff who recommended the perfect wine to accompany our meal.
The only thing thats needed is maybe some live music in the bar area at night.
I think this would be a very romantic retreat for a loved up couple :-)

Room Tip: Balcony from the higher rooms are much better
