“Dublin’s funkiest hotel. Bold colours of scarlet red and lime green are exaggerated by contemporary Baroque flourishes - extravagant patterns and oversized furniture. Sleek, more neutral bedrooms with all the high-techery and sophisticated meeting rooms - a lavish spot for business or pleasure. ”

Hotel Review

If you like funky design, and you dig colour – scarlet red, lime green and so on, plus baroque flourishes and oversize furniture ­– then you’ll love Dylan. More critical, anyone who prefers a design hotel to a traditional one will find a much warmer welcome here, in our experience, than at the city’s other new wave establishments. Bedrooms are calmer than public rooms (with the exception of the restaurant, which is all white) with plenty of extra touches, including i-pods.
