Nice hotel, bit out of town

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: Very spacious room
Cons: Signage for drivers, very easy to miss the turn and end up stuck in the one way system
Location: Christ Church cathedral, Trinity college library, museums
We had a family room which turned out to be huge, I don't know if they are all like that or if we were just lucky. A double bed and two proper singles (not camp beds), dresser, table, sofa & still plenty of room to move around. Breakfast was a very nice buffet. The hotel is quite a way from the main tourist areas if walking (maybe 20 minutes to Christ Church cathedral, 40 minutes to Trinity) but only a few minutes and @ 11 euros by taxi.

Access to public transportation.

The hotel and staff were flawless. The dining was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. We traveled on Luas, off and on bus tours of Dublin, and several times on the train and the location suited our needs perfectly.

Comfort old-fashioned hotel + convenient location

Posted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: Location is very convenient. Pleasant staffs. Good breakfast.
Location: Next to Luas tram and train station. So very convenient to transport in and out of the city. Dublin Zoo is 10-15 minutes walk.
Short stay but quite impressive with this cozy old-fashioned hotel. It has clean & spacious room at a very convenient location.

Great find

Great hotel with train/tram/bus stops right outside to take direct into city centre or airport. Lovely hotel, helpful friendly staff and good breakfast. Only downside was room quite noisy as on main street/tram line. Ask for room at back of hotel for better nights sleep!

Irish hospitality at its best

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Pros: Staff and food
Cons: Not paying to use internet to print boarding passes
Location: Just out with the main through fare but close enough for everything
Experience was perfect hotel ticked all the boxes for me. The pluses of this hotel has to be staff, food and location. My only negative and it was only one was you had to pay for internet access to print boarding passes. I have an intolerance to wheat and gluten free porridge was available on request which was the best ever came with honey and cream on the side and a generous portion too. They also had a section of gluten free bread, scones, cereal etc available at the breakfast buffet as this is such a common allergy now I was so chuffed to see a selection on display top marks Ashling. Dublin was such a friendly place to visit, hospitality at its best. Tram and hop on hop off buses right at hotel door and attractions close by would certainly recommend to friends and family and will be paying the Ashling a return visit in future:)

First trip to Dublin

Posted Oct 23, 2014
I spent maybe 3 weeks researching hotels in the Dublin area to make sure we got the best price for a hotel. And I was a indecisive. ;). Found this gem and felt it was a great hotel for the price. The hotel staff was nice as well as the hotel itself. Right next to Heuston station and bus 747 drops off from the airport at the station so we didn't have to walk far. The Luas picks up right in front of Heuston station as well. The only negative I have is 100% our fault. I chose to walk everywhere and cut cost for transportation. The hotel is roughly a 1.5 mile walk to temple bar/Suffolk st where our Tours departed, Which equivalates to a 30min or so walk. But I don't count the hotel off for our mistake. Would go back again, this time with transportation :)

good hotel let down by patchy service

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: Comfortable ,easy to get around and value for money
Cons: Bar food service is awful .6 people in our party were served food 2 at a time meaning the first 2 were finished before last 2 were even served !!!!!!
Location: Ideal for Guiness storehouse ,Kilmainham jail, trams at the door, tour bus stop ,taxi rank etc
We stayed here once before it`s refurb and this return visit showed it`s much improved with pleasing reception and public areas.After a quick check in we were given a 3rd floor room which was a good size with a double and a single bed .It was reasonably clean but staff could pay more attention to areas around radiator valves ,corners etc. Shower was excellent- it just about knocked you over! with well stocked toiletries and a decent selection of towels.Breakfast was not included in our rate but we opted for the full Irish for the 3 mornings of our stay which at 12 euros per person we felt was well cooked with plenty options and good quality. The room was quiet - we were at the rear of the hotel and a comfortable temperature. One thing is the mattresses could do with upgrading, any movement from my wife meant the bed bounced waking me up. Pocket spring mattresses would help ! Over staff were friendly but with some "grumps " at breakfast. Good value for money at the rate we got.

Comfortable and convenient.

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: Nothing to recommend.
Location: All the sites and shopping venues are a short ride on the Tram, which stops across the street from the hotel.
We were very happy with our four night stay at the Ashling. The room was clean and comfortable. All staff were courteous and quite willing to provide information regarding transportation and Dublin city sites. I've were also impressed with variety and quality of the offerings in the hotel restaurants. Though a little on the expensive side, food prices were in line with other restaurants in Dublin (certainly not an inexpensive city to visit). The Ashling was very convenient to the city Tram system stop, as well as the airport shuttle. Lastly, the Ashling is out of the main hullabaloo areas, so we had no noise issues.

Lovely hotel with friendly staff

Posted Oct 17, 2014
Spent 3 nights at the Ashling and what a lovely time we had!! Very clean hotel, excellent food (breakfast was wonderful!!) and staff very helpful. The tram and buses stop practically outside the hotel and will get you into town easily. We would stay again and recommend for a stay in Dublin
