This Hotel Is Ideal For A Summer City Break In Dublin

You know what, staycations are underrated. Especially in Dublin.

Sometimes you just want the novelty and luxury that comes with a hotel stay, as well as an ideal base camp to explore Dublin.

This Dublin hotel ticks all those boxes.

Located in the buzzing village of Ranelagh, The Devlin may be just what you’re looking for when staying in Dublin this summer. It’s right next to the Luas line which means it only takes a quick 15 minutes to get into the City Centre, or 5 minutes if you’re driving.

And Ranelagh has an unreal choice of pubs and restaurants if you don’t fancy journeying into the City Centre. It has that real village vibe but there is also a fair bit of exciting hustle and bustle about the place. The village is also super close to Dublin landmarks like St Stephen’s Green Park and the Aviva Stadium.

But if all you’re looking for is a fabulous hotel stay, The Devlin has pretty much everything you could ask for.

For fab food and stunning views of a summer’s day in Dublin, Layla’s Rooftop Restaurant Bar and Terrace should not be missed.

I would definitely recommend including breakfast up here in your booking so you can soak up the unreal views of the Dublin Mountains and watch the sunrise over the rooftops of Dublin before getting out into the city for the day.

Or for tasty classic and slick cocktails, Americana Bar on the ground floor is a shout. The talented bartenders whip up some deliciously stylish cocktails, and the food is just as enjoyable.

One of the most exciting features of this hotel, and perhaps of Ranelagh in general, is the Stella Theatre. This isn’t your everyday movie-viewing experience. This 44-seater cinema with a state-of-the sound system is truly unique.

You can chill in the cocktail lounge before heading into the auditorium for a luxury cinema experience. The Stella Theatre, Ranelagh focus mainly on indie and arthouse style movies, as well as Irish-made movies. This would be an unreal date night!

The Devlin is also home to DIME, which is a fantastic spot for coffee before and after all the excitement a day out in Dublin has to offer.

And the rooms have pretty much everything you need for a relaxed and luxurious stay.

There are four types of rooms: the ModPod, BunkPod, TriPod and SuperPod, each with an individual feel, unique art pieces and clever design touches.

Complete with Dyson hair dryers, power showers, Nespresso machines, Devlin Munchie Boxes, awesome original art, Smeg fridge, Netflix and Marshall amps, these aren’t just any basic hotel rooms. I can definitely see myself kicking my feet up in one of these rooms after a busy summer’s day in the city.
