The Dylan is one of Dublin's coolest hotels but as a Dublin, I haven't had the opportunity to stay there, instead I've been there for lunch, brunch, dinner and drinks. The hotel is at its best in the summer. The outdoor areas and simply fantastic, they're even better than the interiors (which are a little too eccentric for my tastest).
Food at the Dylan is a good but by no means great. The a la carte menu is over priced, as are drinks. Brunch is reasonably priced but the menu lacks favorites such as eggs benedict. Pity.
What really lets a hotel like this down is the service. It can be slow and lacklustre. Staff tend to be forgetful and show no initiative.
Moral of the story, go here for breakfast in the sun, a drink in the evening and make sure you're not in a rush.
