I stayed at the Dylan for a week while in Dublin on business, and I was SO happy with the choice! The staff was very friendly and made the stay very pleasant. Though not located in the main downtown area, it's only a 20 minute or so walk, so I still got plenty of site-seeing in during my trip and still had very restful nights. The breakfast included made-to-order omelets and the smoked salmon option was a delightful treat. Overall, lovely hotel!

Dear Guest,

I am delighted with your comments about our hotel. We do think that we have an ideal location, close enough to the city centre to walk to Grafton Street in 15mins but situated on a quiet, picturesque Victorian residential road.

Thank you for your comments about our tasty breakfast in Dylan Restaurant. We are proud to have both a continental buffet and hot breakfast made to order, as well as more casual bar menu options.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Dylan in the not too distant future.

Yours sincerely,

Gráinne Ross

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for New Years Eve and had a wonderful time, it is one of the nicest hotels in Dublin and we couldn't really find fault with anything (other than not being able to stay longer!)
We arrived by car but the parking is Valet only, it is 20 euro per night but this was included in our stay. We were helped to our room with our luggage and spent time getting acquainted with the beautifully appointed room, we stayed in 303. The room was spacious, spotless and very very modern and comfortable. Lovely touches such as locally sourced confections were very welcome, as was the personalised greeting upon arrival in the room. We ate in our room and can recommend the Dylan Burger, fabulous. Drinks in the bar were great with a huge array of cocktails, spirits and beers. We drank far too many cocktails but they were so wonderful we can't really be blamed!
The hotel is pricey but unike other places, in this regard you do get what you pay for and I would recommend the Dylan to anyone interested, a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you check the location, it can be tricky as it is not signposted.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for placing your recent experience at Dylan on Trip Advisor. I am delighted to read that you had a wonderful stay with us.

There are two parking options for our guests. The first would be on street parking on either Eastmoreland Place or the adjacent St Mary’s Road. Both roads are pay and display with hours operating between 8am and 6.30pm, Monday to Friday on Eastmoreland Place or between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Saturday on St Mary’s Road. The price is €2.90 per hour. However most of our guests take advantage of our valet parking option as there is no meter feeding to worry about and for a full day’s parking, our valet parking service works out financially in their favour.

I am glad that you noticed our “Irish Box of Goodness”; this is full of little treats that are locally sourced from different local artisan suppliers. It has been an extremely popular addition inside our rooms since last summer.

It’s great to hear that you enjoyed our famous Dylan Burger and can vouch for a wide variety of our cocktails in Dylan Bar. All of us here look forward to welcoming you back to Dylan soon.

Yours sincerely,

Gráinne Ross

Nice, clean, spacious room. Employees were very helpful, professional and courteous. Great Irish breakfast. Great location if attending event at aviva stadium-between stadium and St. Stephen's Green. I would stay there again.

The Dylan hotel is just lovely. The rooms are beautiful and more than adequately sized. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food is excellent, especially breakfast. It's a very short walk to local pubs and restaurants and about a 20 min walk to the center of Dublin. I'd highly recommend the Dylan and most definitely will stay there again. And for those of you that smoke, whilst all hotels now don't allow it, the Dylan has a really nice covered and heated outdoor patio area with TV's and comfortable rattan furniture right next to the main bar and restaurant.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful

What a treat this hotel is! Service, room, ambiance... just wonderful. Breakfast and dinner - amazing. If staying in the hotel, you must try the restaurant! While we were there the Irish Masterchef crew were filming in the kitchen, which says a lot.

Our room was tastefully decorated with great little touches. A drink in the bar is also a must. It's classy, while at the same time relaxing. A lovely way to finish off the day.

We've definately found our go-to hotel whenever we're in Dublin again.

From the welcome to departure, the staff were warmly welcoming. At first, I thought you had to be a man to work here, but I did see a lady at the front desk at check out. While staying here, we were attending a theatre in the city and had late supper close by. I was sorry we did not have more time in the hotel as we had no time to eat or drink downstairs. Also, our bedroom was so beautiful. I also loved the bathroom which had a decent sized shower as well as a fine sized bath. There was a TV in the bathroom for those so inclined - I was not. Our room overlooked the front of the hotel which is on a quiet Ballsbridge Road. I heard nothing during the night. Beautiful hotel for a special treat. Customer service is important here.

Room Tip: Ours was over front - no complaint from me. It was upgraded - beautiful and spacious. Did not see...

Stayed here May 2012 for a birthday function. Location was okay - outside the CBD/shopping district but only a 15min Walk away. Room - we had a double room up in the "roof", room was poky and dark (one very small window). But at least it was clean. Considering the price i was very disapointed. The hotel itself was very modern, "designer" touches everywhere. Service from the staff excellent. Breakfsst not included but it was decent enough (tried the full irish breakfast) and well priced.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room first - esp if you would like natural light
