Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, Dublin
Dublin has a lot to offer travlers: world class museums, beautiful gardens, a rich literary history, and (of course) pints upon pints of Guinness. For these and many more reasons, the Irish capital attracts a varied set of visitors each year -- and many of them want to experience all Dublin has to offer and still come home to luxe digs. And from charming boutiques to historic hideaways, we've found some of the best luxury stays in Dublin: The Dylan Hotel is a stylish 44-room boutique with a quiet and safe location in Dublin 4, an upscale neighborhood a short walk from the city center. Each room has been individually styled with a mix of whimsical decor -- artistic headboards, intricate mirrors, and statement chairs -- and classic pieces. Amenities are fantastic for such a small property. In the rooms, there are flat-screen TVs, iPod docks (with iPods loaded with historical Dublin walking tours), stocked minibars, and bathrooms with underfloor heating. Some bathrooms also have big, luxurious soaking tubs with small flat-screen TVs. Amenities in the hotel include a fitness room, cozy bar, heated outdoor terrace, solid restaurant, and 24-hour room service.
