Thinking Dublin? Think Dylan…our pick which also just happens to otherwise be known as the city’s hottest boutique hotel according to certain circles and publications (just sayin’). Décor is sophisticated, location is slightly suburban, lending itself to a traditionally Irish green leafy surrounding yet just minutes from all of the city’s most bustling areas. You’re greeted on arrival by their savvy dedicated Welcome Team clad in super swish garb, and it just gets better from there.

No two guests are alike, which is great because no two rooms at the Dylan are alike. They range from modern to mystical, stylish to sensual, wildly colored to softly monotone and everything in between. However, the constants are consistent and comprised of everything from Seventh Heaven memory foam beds, Frette linens, customized pillows from their signature menu, plasma TVs, free WIFI, iPod docking stations, Etro bath amenities and more. http://www.thecollektion.com/dylan1.html

When you get hungry in Dublin, some eats we might recommend (though a bit quirky, but we promise they’re good!) would be:

-Monty’s Of Kathmandu- Yes, because Nepalese food is the first thing you think of when in Ireland….seriously, it’s small, unassuming, majorly award-winning and delicious. - 28 Eustace Road- Temple Bar, Dublin

-Leo Burdock’s Fish & Chips- Proudly serving up the greasy, gorgeous grub since 1913- no inside seating but the outdoor nearby benches work well. - 2 Werburgh St, Dublin

-Queen of Tarts- Finish off either of these meals, or start your day rather with a sweet treat
from this local café. - Cow’s Lane, Dame St, Dublin
