Description

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 center 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 color 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.

Accommodation

There are just 44 rooms at the boutique Dylan hotel, each of which has an extremely comfortable memory foam bed, Bang & Olufsen or Bose technology and marble bathrooms with a rainfall shower and Mark Buxton amenities. Some rooms feature balconies.

Deluxe Room

Deluxe Rooms are individually styled, measuring an average of 26 sqm. A selection of these rooms incorporate original Victorian features of the building such as portholes and vaulted ceilings.

Experience Suite

Experience Suites deliver on their name in every way, with their quirky styling, individual design, relaxation lounges and even TVs in the bathroom!

Signature Suite

The Signature Suites at The Dylan offer sumptuous styling and stunning views over the glittering streets of Dublin. The Signature Suites measure an average of 35 sqm, and the bathroom features a rainfall shower and free-standing bathtub.

Facilities

The Tavern restaurant at The Dylan is well worth a visit, serving traditional yet contemporary dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The Dylan Bar is ideally located for pre or post-dinner drinks, with an outdoor terrace which is perfect for relaxing on a summer evening away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Activities

There is plenty on offer around Dublin, and The Dylan is located a mere 10-minute walk from the majority of the city's attractions. Pay a visit to the infamous Guinness Storehouse to learn more about Ireland's national drink, or for a more cultural experience, head to Trinity College's Old Library to see the ancient Book of Kells.

Location & Directions

Dublin, Ireland

Set in the very heart of Dublin city center, the Dylan hotel is a 10-minute walk from most main attractions, including Grafton Street, the Grand Canal and Bord Gais Theatres, Aviva Stadium and many other cultural icons.

When to go

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.
