Fodor's Expert Review The Devlin

119 Ranelagh Rd., Dublin, Co. Dublin, Dublin 6, Ireland Fodor's Choice

Located in trendy Ranelagh village, just outside the city center, this boutique property refers to its compact rooms as "pods," and offers a rooftop restaurant and terrace, ground-floor bar and coffee shop, and subterranean 42-seat cinema and bar, making it one of the coolest places to stay in Dublin right now. The rooms are definitely not big, but the smart design, minimalist style, herringbone-pattern wood floors, and great big windows keep them light and airy. "Bunkpod" rooms stack a single bed on top of a double, making it a good option for small families. An impressive collection of contemporary Irish art adorns the walls, and Layla's restaurant on the top floor has 180-degree views of the Dublin skyline. The in-house cinema has two shows daily.
