“Very convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

We stayed at the Ashling and found it to be a great location. Our room was fine. The staff very pleasant and helpful. The hotel had all the amenities one would need as a traveller. The location is close to the bus, luas, train station and we even walked to Temple bar area.

rated 4 star but rooms are 3 star. the location is 5 star. 2 min walk from heuston station, where one can get the bus and the trains and the trams.
getting to the hotel from airport is a breeze, the shuttle runs every 20 min and its a thirty min ride.
hotel was very accommodating, we reached 9 am and we were allowed to check in early free. the restaurant is good. downtown is 20min walk or catch the bus or tram right in front of the hotel.
I wouldn't mind staying again for the reason above

The Ashling is a very modern and top quality hotel. I would rate it at the high end of business class; probably four stars. Very clean and very well appointed. Its location is great; just across from the Hueston train station which makes it great for convenient and inexpensive bus transport to/from airport. The LUAS (Light rail/street car) runs right in front of hotel with stop about 200 meters up the street. It covers all of the city north of the Liffey; just get on the rail and get off and walk across a bridge to the get to the more active area on the south side. Very convenient to the wonderful park and zoo. The breakfast buffet was superb; everything you could imagine, but if you wanted something else I suspect they would have rounded it up. The front desk staff had good suggestions about pubs and dining. We arrived in mid-morning, checked in administratively and stored our bags, then toured for the day. When we returned they gave us our key. There are a couple of good pubs a block away. A first class hotel in a quiet area that is convenient for getting everywhere in Dublin. Sounds like a winner to me.

This is a luxury hotel. Nice clean room, the best breakfast we had anywhere in Ireland. A bit far from the center, but the tram is outside. We had booked an ugraded room to get a view of the Liffey. The room was perfect and it was heaven staying inside staring out on a rainy cold and windy Dublin with Guiness on the other side of the river.
Why poor: The upgrading was payed twice for the same room the same day! When by mail asking for an explanation we had no reaction after 2 attempts in 2 weeks. Service when booking was quick and polite, but not later on. Their negligence to reply leaves me with a bad taste and explains the bad rating of an otherwise great hotel.

Stayed here first weekend in June , luas red line just up road very convenient for city.

Staff very helpful upgraded my mother so she would be on same floor as she would be nervous on her own.
Excellent breakfast and lovely big bar with nice food.

Met some nice people in bar so very friendly too.

Very central to heuston stn across road.
We had lovely meal friday night in 'Juno's ' just down road very friendly and lovely wine , He made my little girl special meal and was lovely to her.
Booked FX Grill at Ryans and staff were appallingly rude , I was embarassed my daughter could experience a snooty maitre d putting people in their place and made us feel very uncomfortable . Food lovely but whole experience not worth it .
Highly recommend Ashling hotel for families etc.
