About Us​

We are very excited to be introducing a new upmarket Hostel in Dublin City. We have reinvigorated the old Dawson Hotel, which we believe will be a great addition to Dublin. Our new Hostel will open at the start of March this year and will provide a great mix or rooms to suit all travellers.

Located in the heart of the city, The Dawson will be suited to all wishing to experience Dublin City , whether it be for an exciting concert, attending one of the many sporting events taking place over the year or just a night away exploring. We will also cater for large groups with ease, as our ensuite rooms range from 2 – 8 beds, so no matter what size group you have for us we can create a package that suits your needs.

Our Rooms

Almost all of our rooms are ensuite with some larger dorms having shared bathroom and showers. Located over 3 floors within the building we can cater for up to 200 people with plans to extend this number in the coming year.

Our bunk beds are each equipped with their own individually controlled light, charging stations and privacy curtain. ( This is a work in progress) We also have some female & male only dorms for our customers. Our ground floor will have a self-catering Kitchen, common room, 24 hour fully staffed reception desk, locker storage and laptop storage available for all guests.


Located on Dawson Street, a short walk from Dublin’s most famous landmarks as well as the key shopping and cultural areas of the city – Stephen’s Green, Temple Bar and all the major Dublin City sights are on your doorstep! And with the Luas tram and major bus routes right outside, The Dawson is only minutes away from all major bus and train stations.

We look forward to welcoming all our guests and kicking off 2024 in Dublin in style at The Dawson.
