Gloom conveys a sense of weighty or oppressive emotion. A gloom hung over the street that the sunshine could not lift. Dull is a lack of colour but feels more like boredom. The decore was dull and totally without life as if someone had deliberately tried to remove all light from the room.

Gloom is a noun, gloomy is an adjective as is dull. As stated before gloomy is more depressing.
