'The Power', who claimed his tenth title by beating the Northern Irishman 6-3, had to battle a chorus of boos from the crowd, who were rooting for underdog Dolan.
"I think every emotion went through my body there," Taylor told Sky Sports News.
"Halfway through the game I was giving up and then I was pushing - the crowd got to me, I'll be honest with you.
"The booing every time you're throwing for a double does get to you, it's very, very off-putting but I knew what was going to happen and I just had to keep focusing."
Taylor picked up a cheque for £100,000 for the win.
