A day in Dublin

A travel blog entry by amyc94 on Aug 11, 2014

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... Had lunch on a patio at the Trinity Bar restaurant... Went to St Patricks Cathedral.... Then headed to Guinness for a tour and free pint... Mom didn't drink hers (I know, …

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 …

Random thoughts on Dublin

A travel blog entry by krackercpg on Sep 03, 2013

-It doesn't matter if you have a map and can read it, there aren't street signs so good luck finding anything -You think gas is cheap here when you see the price (1.51) but when you convert it from euros to dollars and pints to gallons, it's over $8/gallon! -The world is truly a small place. We ran into one of Andy's law school classmates twice in …

... meant to mention that we saw five hairdressers in a row, must be a thriving business over here.
it is so light here, doesn't get dark until about 9.30pm. Very proud of myself, after dinner at O'Neils last night the others were kicking on so got myself back on the train, is a brilliant light rail system, lots of people around, in fact thousands, they were starting a marathon last night at 9.30pm, on a Sunday!! Only in Ireland...have had free time this afternoon ...

Down with Dublin

... around 1:30pm for our flight at 3:30pm. We were flying Ryanair this time, so the rules were a little different. We tried to go through security right away, but we had to go all the way back down to the office desk and get a stamp. By the time I am leaving Barcelona, I will be able to walk the airport with my eyes closed. It's actually already very easy for me to figure out. Anyway, Ryanair's colors are bright yellow and purple... so that's all ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ashling Hotel Dublin

    Location and room ok, but service rather poor

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    OK hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.
