A Day Out in Dublin

Dublin city is full of great things to do, whether you’re interested in art, history, fashion, the great outdoors a culture vulture you’ll find something to do in Dublin!

Many of our guests ask us for recommendations of things to do and places to see while they’re visiting Dublin so we’ve put together a sample itinerary for a full day out in Dublin.


Guests should definitely start their day with our legendary breakfast. Set yourself up for the day ahead and choose from our selection of over 120 breakfast items, from nuts, seeds, donuts, fruit, yogurts, gluten free options, full Irish breakfast, and many different cereals, the variety is endless.

After breakfast, take a walk through the Phoenix Park and take in some fresh air. Make sure you keep an eye out for the Fallow deer who roam the park and were the inspiration behind the Ashling Hotel logo.

After you’ve stretched your legs in the Phoenix Park, check out the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks, it’s just steps away from the Ashling Hotel’s front door.  The museum is ideal for those with an interest in decorative arts and history, and it’s free of charge as well.

The Luas tram stops right outside the museum’s front door, once you’re done hop on for 2 stops and you’re in the city centre.


Dublin city centre is a haven of activity! We recommend that you take a stroll through the city and visit the Wax Museum on Westmorland street where you’ll find all kinds of characters. Next head towards Trinity College and see the world famous Book of Kells. Afterwards, walk along Grafton Street and browse through the stores.


Once you’re finished exploring the city centre, come back to the hotel and grab a bite to eat in our Iveagh Bar. We’ve got a variety of dishes on our menu from chicken wings and burgers to pizzas and salads. Our Food and Beverage team will be happy to give you some tips on drinks and cocktails to have with your meal.

For the complete Irish experience head back into the city centre and visit the Brazen Head pub, it’s one of Ireland’s oldest pubs.

Without a doubt you should definitely visit Temple Bar, Dublin’s cultural quarter and well-known spot for its lively nightlife. You’ll find everything from traditional Irish pubs with live music to busy night clubs! It’s the ultimate tourist hub in Dublin.

If you’re not in the partying mood, you can come back to the hotel, let us look after you, enjoy a quiet night cap in our Iveagh Bar or go back to your bedroom, sit back and order a room service pizza of your choice.
