Great hotel. Great location. Honestly can't fault it. We got upgraded to a suite which was huge, a lovely bonus. Sam's bar was good too. Didn't hear any excessive noise like some people have, maybe it depends on the room. Would definitely go back.More

The Dawson Hotel ideally located on Dawson Street in the heart of Dublin's city centre, with Trinity College at one end of the street and St. Stephen's Green at the other. Dublin's main shopping district, Grafton Street, is a short stroll around the corner from the hotel. Also onsite, the adjoining Sam's Bar offers a glamorous vibe, fresh cocktails and music from international DJs, with a Victorian garden terrace overlooking Dublin's Mansion House. While we do not have parking onsite, we have an agreement with Setanta Q-Park, located on Molesworth Street, where our guests can benefit from discounted parking with up to 50% off per 24 hour period. Please note, the Hotel is not recommended for those with mobility issues, in particular those who require wheelchair access.Please be aware that rooms listed as Vibrant Weekend rooms are those located directly above Sam’s Bar, and music will be heard until around 02:30 on a Thursday, and 03.30 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Make no mistake, it's a club complete with bouncers. I went to see it one night and witnessed bouncers removing the lock from a toilet door to get to young woman who was carried out unconscious.
