OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The Dylan is on a lovely tree-lined road just off Baggot Street in the south city, around 15 minutes' walk to St Stephen's Green and 30 minutes' walk to the city centre. It is very convenient for the Aviva Stadium for rugby matches and concerts, and to the RDS Ballsbridge for other events.

By plane: direct flights to Dublin from Manchester and Birmingham (1 hour), and London (1 hour 15 minutes). It's a 25-minute drive to the hotel. On-site parking (charges apply). Book flights to Dublin.

There are quirky and individual design elements throughout the communal spaces and in bedrooms - for example unusual furniture, light fittings, curtains, mirrors and headboards.
