Yes, we are approaching that festive time of year – at the time of writing there are 131 days, 12 hours 1 minute and 8 seconds to go to the big day! Wow! Dylan Hotel in Dublin are already in the throes of planning the perfect Dylan Christmas. And what a special place to stay over the festive holiday season.

Dylan aims to provide the perfect stress free Christmas for all it’s guest, marking the first time it will stay open throughout the Christmas season. This boutique hotel is family run, so you can expect a warm Irish welcome on your arrival. Arrival and check in on Christmas Eve is followed by mulled wine and music in the Library. Christmas day begins with breakfast, and maybe a stroll by the canal before returning to the hotel for a traditional Christmas lunch in Tavern Restaurant. Follow lunch with a snooze in your individuallly designed room, a board game in the lounge, or a movie on the heated Japanese Terrace. Nibble on some festive snacks in the Library if you feel peckish. Take it easy and enjoy the peace and quiet of  this charming hotel set on the borders of residential Ballsbridge. Christmas Day is probably the only time Ireland’s capital city falls as close to silent as it ever gets!  After breakfast on St.Stephen’s Day, depart for home, but probably not before checking the shops for after Christmas sales bargains!
