History of the Dylan Hotel
The contemporary landmark building of the Dylan Hotel was once the nurses’ home for the Royal City of Dublin Hospital. The five-star boutique hotel, located in a peaceful area near bustling Baggot Street, is in the exclusive Victorian neighborhood of Dublin 4. Opened in 2006, the hotel also built a large building next to the 100-year-old nurses’ home. The boutique hotel opened with just 44 deluxe rooms.

The Dylan Hotel is located just south of the Grand Canal in Dublin. This southern part of the city center is within walking distance to the famous Grafton Street shopping and restaurant area and St. Stephen’s Green.

A short leisurely stroll will bring you to Aviva Stadium and RDS Arena where concerts, conferences, and sporting events take place.
