Historical Traveler Reviews Ashling Hotel Dublin
Location and room ok, but service rather poor
I stayed for 3 nights at the Ashling and to be honest, I expected a bit more for the price I paid. The location is ok, it's a 15-20 minutes walk to the city center and just opposite the Heuston Railway station. The rooms are rather clean. The minor point was the service of the staff. They were not unfriendly, but that's all. I didn't feel very welcome and felt I was really treated like a number. It was like that at the reception desk and also in the Bistro. The staff of the pub was friendlier.
I wouldn't stay again at the Ashling. It's not bad, but I'm sure that for the price you pay, you can get a better hotel.
Happy With the Ashling
Spent three nights there this March.Staff was friendly & accomodating, especially the night clerk(brought me a pot of coffee in the lobby sitting area when jet lag had me up at 4am).Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Location was as advertised, close enough but not too close to the city center. Restaurants and pubs in the immediate vicinity eliminated the for much galavanting around the city. The Millenium, just a couple of doors away, was our best Pub experience of a 10 day tour of Ireland.
Not the Best West
Just spent a few days at the Ashling, Which is a mile or so from City Centre. No probs getting about by Bus,but plenty of walking to be done in the City... very long streets, multitudes of people milling around, lots of things to see and do. Eating out can be a little more expensive than UK, But is good quality. Lots of building and regeneration going on at moment,ie New 4km Dublin port tunnel, new innner light rail system being installed to cover a lot of the City. local to hotel, GuinnessBrewery across the road, ( St James Gate ) Jamesons Old Distilliary half mile up road at smithfield Village.Crackin pub restuarant called Nancy Hands two hundred yards up road... terrific grub.. treat yourself, its fab. As for Ashling... Clean in some parts of building. food fair but alittle expensive for what they serve up. ie breakfast 10 euros. staff not that helpful, not a thankyou or a goodbye. we had a load of Italian students in the Bistro one night, noise and behaviour was abyssmal. lots of things like conferences going on most of time. But its ok for a base or short Breaks
Home away from home
This hotel is great!! It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet a close enough walk or bus ride. The staff is wonderful! If you get a chance go to the bar and meet Leon the best bartender ever. Hotel is very clean, a must I think. We went during St.
Patty's day 2004. The staff was very helpful and informative. They gave us great "off the beaten path" suggestions. I would go again.
A Pleasant Hotel
I stayed here for two nights in early March '04. It is ideally located in Dublin and is a hotel you will look forward to returning to after a long day out exploring the city.
The staff are friendly and the breakfast is really good. It is well-equipped and spotlessly clean. I'll certainly recommend it to anyone going to Dublin.
Had a great time
Had a marvelous weekend at this hotel. Staff were really friendly & helpful. Wish I knew all their names but in particular Stephen behind the bar and Rafael (who we could practice our awful Spanish on) were lovely. Atmosphere was great and there were as many locals in the bar as tourists which says a lot. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and hopefully will be back one day myself.
This hotel is not bad, but not much more. The renovated rooms are quite pleasant, the unrenovated rooms less so. The restaurant unhelpfully refused to provide any food when we arrived quite late. On the other hand, we went to a fabulous pub/restaurant about 2 minutes walk from the hotel, called Nancy Hands, for dinner instead.
Warm Friendly Stay
My friend & I stayed in the hotel in November 2003 for 2 nights. Its in a great location away from the hustle of the city but with in easy reach of the city, lots of buses running regularly.
What can I say-Well worth the stay!
Each time I go to Dublin I try and get into the Ashling Hotel. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. The food is georgous and have never had a complaint. The rooms are lovely. Its in a great location right across from houston train station and has a bus stop directly outside to bring you into O'Connell Street. Well worth it.

Spent the day tooling around Dublin.... Started with a quick bus tour to see the city... Stopped at Trinity College to see the Book of Kells... Went and did a bit of shopping...

So, we've had a busy couple of days! We spent Wednesday traveling from Lansing to Detroit to Atlanta to Dublin. We arrived in Dublin around 7:30am local time (2:30 am back home).
The customs process was easy peasy, as was getting our bags. The CIE tour agent was waiting for us at the arrivals hall, and a short 20 minutes later, we were …
... by the city street sweeper who had them doing a swift pack up and move back to the footpath. It was quite funny to see this tiny little sweeper cart emerge from the cheers of the crowd. By now it was 8pm local time. Saturday night dinner of steak cooked at your table on a hot stone with the background of Irish music was a fitting start to our stay. The time difference was beginning to catch up with us again. We had nearly mastered Dubai time and now it was another 3 ...
