Bottom Line

The Dawson Hotel & Spa is a 28-room boutique option in the center of Dublin. Eastern and Moroccan themes dominate the decor, and rooms have comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs, and stocked minibars. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and some have luxurious soaking tubs. The on-site Dawson Spa offers a long list of treatments, along with cozy seating. Restaurants and bars are a draw at this hotel, including the upscale Pink Supper Club and Sam Sara, home to a great late-night scene. The location on Dawson Street is easy walking distance from shopping on Grafton Street and St. Stephen's Green, but the hotel is on the pricey side.

A half a block north of St. Stephen's Green in the heart of Dublin

Map of The Dawson Hotel & Spa

The The Dawson Hotel & Spa is located a half a block north of St. Stephen's Green in the heart of Dublin. The main pedestrian shopping street, Grafton Street, is a short stroll away. Many of Dublin's top museums, including the Natural History Museum and the National Gallery are also close by. This boutique hotel has one of the most central locations in all of Dublin, offering great access to restaurants, sights, and shopping.

Dublin has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. First there was the boom of the Celtic Tiger that brought great development and growth to the city. As a result of this wave of wealth, the city now has a cosmopolitan feel that it never had before. Since the economic bust, restaurants and hotels have generally retained the same quality, but the city is less expensive. Dublin has beautiful gardens, museums, and theaters, but it is the everyday things in the Irish capital -- like sitting in a local pub and having a pint -- that are a high point for many visitors.
