The Dylan Completes Bedroom Redesign Project

The Dylan Hotel has announced completion of a comprehensive refurbishment, which includes the original bedrooms and suites along with all guest corridors.

The owners of the hotel said the new design combines historical elements with classic influences and a contemporary, colour-forward style.

Newly Renovated Bedrooms

The new refurbishment aims to integrate the same design and style, found in the hotel's public areas and the 28-bedroom wing added in 2017, into the newly renovated bedrooms.

Caroline Campbell from design firm Tonik led the project ensuring sustainability played a role with refurbishing and repurposing existing artwork and furniture.

Original Artworks

The Dylan Hotel also partnered with art director Catherine O'Riordan of So Fine Art Editions Gallery to create a curated portfolio of original artworks and prints that adorn the newly renovated bedrooms.


Notable contributions include art and ceramics by Emma O'Hara and an all-Irish line-up featuring Shane O'Driscoll, Colm Toolan, Mary O'Connor, and Alice Fitzgerald.

Irish Craftsmanship

The Dylan Hotel also collaborated with Gem Joinery, based in County Longford, to craft bespoke walnut joinery for each guest room.

The joinery features intricate inlays of natural stone, solid walnut fluting panels, and accents of brass, showcasing Irish craftsmanship.

'Elegant Victorian Architecture'

"The completion of the re-design of the bedrooms brings a balance to the hotel, as this deep refurbishment of the original bedrooms and all guest corridors finalises the entire refurbishment of the hotel, since its opening in 2006," said Conor Dillon, general manager at Dylan Hotel.

"With subtle nods to the elegant Victorian architecture woven throughout the design, we are excited to provide our guests with an enhanced experience that beautifully marries our rich history with modern comfort."
