Best time to Visit

Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in Ireland - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but Ireland does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

Description

The Dylan is a contemporary boutique hotel located in one of Dublin's Victorian residential areas, and just a 10-minute walk from the city centre. Packed with character, this unique hotel is the perfect base for exploring all that Dublin has to offer.

The Dylan is a lovely addition to Dublin's hotel scene with a more contemporary offering. Its location in a quiet residential area of the city is perfect for those wanting to dip in to the lively centre of Dublin and come back for a restful night away from the buzz.

The Dylan is set in a Victorian fronted house and is elegantly designed with contemporary classic decor. Pops of colour stand out against a muted palette, and rooms are enhanced with modern furnishings. The dining room and sitting areas have a chic, homely feel that make you instantly relax.

The bedrooms are all individually designed with artistic furniture, eclectic bed heads and unique Victorian architectural features. Rooms have charming views over the surrounding rooftops and some boast balconies.

The main restaurant, The Tavern, serves delicious, classic Irish food with locally-sourced, fresh and healthy ingredients in a relaxed atmosphere. The Dylan Bar has a more intimate atmosphere and serves exceptional cocktails that bring in local crowds as well as hotel guests - so good in fact that they offer a cocktail masterclass with their in-house mixologist! Enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the contemporary bar or, in the summer, head outside to The Dylan's terrace, a comfortable haven hidden away from the busy city.

Cordelia Nicholls (Staff)

The Dylan is a really welcoming boutique hotel with lovely staff and a really nice atmosphere. Great Irish food, not over the top but very tasty. Rooms are good sizes for a city hotel and it's nice to stay somewhere quiet but within easy reach from the city centre.

Milly Walker (Staff)

Ideal hotel if you want to be not right in the thick of it all but still just a short 15 minute walk from the centre. Good sized rooms and really comfortable beds.
