“There's a reason this is number 1 on Tripadvisor - it deserves it.”
Reviewed August 4, 2009

We chose the Dylan based on a friend's recommendation and on its #1 rating on here. It was absolutely lovely - eccentric and luxurious decor, charming and helpful staff, great room, comfortable bed, nice little extras like a chocolate at turn-down and use of hair-straighteners if you need them, and gorgeous toiletries in the bathroom. The breakfasts were great and they even had gluten-free bread on request. The only tiny negative thing I'd say is that there are no tea or coffee-making facilities in the room, which seems unusual when everything else was above and beyond what you'd expect. All in all - an excellent hotel. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for and there was a good '3 nights for 2' deal on ther website.

The Dylan has a great combination of 'hipness', style, comfort and elegence. I've been hesitant to stay here in the past because I was worried about location being too 'far' from center of things. In fact, it's very walkable to St.Stephen's and the immediate area is very nice.
The place just has a really great feel - sort of a small Four Seasons meets The Viceroy. Bed's are AMAZING and all amenities outstanding. Food and bar both excellent, although, as you'd expect, not inexpensive.
In reality, Dublin doesn't really have many true 4/5 star hotel options. Clearly, The Dylan is it hands down.

Just back from yet another great stay in the Dylan. Had decided to try out Number 31 off Leeson Street for a change but when we arrived there late on Friday night the room was less than satisfactory. A swift phone call to the Dylan and they arranged us to view a couple of rooms and we had our pick. What a great place. Expensive yes, but the rooms are second to none and the service excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. The three concierge guys are brilliant, Nuta, Augustin and sorry but can't remember the name of the third guy but he is cute and remined me of Joey from firends-always big smile on his face. Oh to be back in that luxurious bed again........Until the next time!!!!

I usually avoid traveling because I do not like sleeping in hotels, no matter how highly rated they are. I spent four nights at the Dylan in Dublin and it was the most comfortable hotel stay I have ever had! I did not want to leave the Dylan. The decor was beautifully trendy, the rooms were spacious (we stayed in a total of three during our visit, all were fabulous), the beds were amazing, and the hotel restaurant was delicious (great complimentary breakfast spread and a unique dinner menu). However, the greatest part of this hotel is its warm and welcoming staff. Every worker that we came across in the hotel was a true pleasure. The waiters and bartenders were extremely friendly, and the concierges were best of all. The concierge were very approachable and took excellent care of us...they extended themselves to us more than necessary. Without their recommendations we would not have seen the incredible sights in Ireland that we fell in love with. I cannot wait to spend more time in this country, and another stay at the Dylan is a definite.

Stayed here for four nights and would definately return. Staff were very attentive and helpful Coutyard Bar was lovely but in good weather it was difficult to find a seat as it was well frequented by locals. Although a full breakfast appears expensive, you can choose from lots of other options. I like porridge and they made it as I wanted. Nothing was to much trouble. 10 min walk to Grafton Street. Bus fron airport drops you off at Pembroke Road. Hotel is a five minute walk. Bus cost 8 euros. Good restaurant called Chai Yo ( Thai /Chinese )about 5 mins walk , this was recommended by hotel

stayed for one night as we were attending the bruce springsteen gig at the rds - hotel is in a nice location and is really quiet - yes it is decorated beautifully but i can't really see what all the fuss is about - maybe i was just expecting too much - the service we received couldn't be faulted and all members of staff were very pleasant and helpful but there was just something missing - i have stayed in 5 star hotels throughout the world and feel that the dylan just did nothing for me - there seemed to be a lack of atmosphere within the hotel - as though the people who were staying there were trying too hard. while we did have a great time both at the concert and at the hotel - the bed is so comfy!!!! it isn't a hotel i would be rushing back to -just my opinion but i would prefer to spend my cash on staying somewhere with a bit of atmosphere - if you are going i am sure you will enjoy your stay but it just wasn't for me

Stayed at the Dylan recently. The location was nice, sure some things were a taxi ride away but the neighborhood was nice. Loved the room, the bed was indeed comfy, loved the lamps by the bedside, loved the decor. Only thing I did not like was the bathroom, almost an after thought. Combination shower and bathtub, which I really don't get. No light at all and you could not stand in front of the sink if the door was open. And I was staying in what I suppose is a junior suite. Other than that is was lovely. The restaurant was nice, the terrace bar was incredible on a clear, dry, warm and unusual night in Dublin. The service was fine and tried hard. I would always go back to the Dylan when in Dublin. And kudos to all hotels, like the Dylan offering free wi fii. Excellent idea.
