A boutique hotel situated just south of the Grand Canal, the Dylan has individually styled rooms and well-reputed dining, just a short distance from the main sites of the city. Its 72 rooms are spacious and comfortable, with a tasteful contemporary style. Each is fitted with amenities such as a Nespresso machine, underfloor bathroom heating and a flat-screen HD TV.
The Tavern Restaurant uses seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients in its creative dishes, while the terrace provides an outdoor space in which to relax amid bamboo plants and heated lights.
The property is nestled on a quiet Victorian street, close to some of the city's most popular restaurants and bars. It takes around 20 minutes to walk to St Stephen's Green, around 15 minutes to Merrion Square, and just under half an hour to walk to Trinity College.
Each room at The Dylan has a Victorian-chic design with contemporary features. Large sash windows keep the rooms bright and airy, while memory foam mattresses typify the modern luxuries. All rooms offer free Wi-Fi, manually controlled air conditioning, a flat screen TV, a spacious work desk with international adapters, movies on demand, a fully stocked mini bar, a Nespresso coffee machine and tea-making facilities. Bathrooms are elegant with an Italian marble design.
The Dylan is located just south of the city's heart, off Baggot Street, making it a quiet stay but still with easy access to the city’s main sites. A pleasant 20-minute walk connects you to St Stephen’s Green and the surrounding area.
Food and Drink
All-day dining is served at The Tavern within The Dylan. The seasonal menu changes throughout the year, ensuring fresh ingredients. It typically includes a wide range of options, including soups, salads, seafood and meat. The Dylan Bar offers dining in a more relaxed setting, serving weekend brunch, afternoon tea, and delicious cocktails. The Dylan Bar spills onto an outdoor terrace, to be enjoyed in good weather.
Facilities and Activities
The fitness room is open to guests from 7am to 10pm daily, with cardiovascular equipment containing overhead televisions and iPods. Guests who are looking to stretch their legs with a walk around the city can take part in the Dylan Hotel’s iPod walking tour program. The pre-programmed iPods provide walking tours of Georgian Dublin in addition to a variety of music and playlists. Business butlers are available for those who can’t leave all their work at home, offering services including typing, faxing, printing, and photocopying. Laptop and mobile phone hire is also available.
Although not a central property, we think the Dylan's location makes it feel more restful, which the outdoor terrace and quiet street setting accentuates. Rooms here are at times a bit dark but we think the decor is attractive and the room size spacious.
