Dublin's Premier Hostel

Located in the Heart of the City


The Dawson Hostel, Your Key to Dublin.

Located in the heart of Dublin City, this ex-hotel newly turned hostel is delighted to announce our doors are now open for reservations.

We pride ourselves on being able to cater for all travellers, whether you are travelling solo for work, with a few friends for a concert, or even with a large group discovering Dublin for the first time, look no further than the Dawson Hostel – your key to Dublin.

This newly refurbished property offers rooms that range from private triple ensuites up to spacious dormitories for 20 guests; whatever your travel needs, we cater for it.  

Our outstanding location means you’re only steps away from the elegance of Dawson Street via our front door, and to Dublin’s best late-night party scene of St Anne’s Lane at the back of the building. Whether you’re here for a quiet weekend away or are aiming to dance the nights away in Dublin we have you covered, you can make direct requests for specific room allocation based on your needs by emailing info@thedawsonhostel.ie. Please be aware we may not be able to accommodate every request but will do our best to make sure your visit to The Dawson Hostel is as great as it can possibly be.

Staying with the Dawson Hostel offers numerous advantages to all our guests:

– All rooms are ensuite and are equipped with free under bed storage lockers.  We ask guests to please bring their own padlock.
– Our reception is open 24h a day, seven days a week with staff that speak multiple languages and can help you make the most of your time in Dublin.
– Quaint kitchen available for in-house guests.
– Modern common room and TV room available for when you need a little unwinding after your adventures.
– Only a few hundred metres from main Dublin attractions such as Grafton Street, Book of Kells, St Stephen’s Green, National Museum of Ireland, and the Molly Malone statue.
