We don’t often shout about our achievements, but our team and hotel have really outdone themselves this year. At Ashling Hotel, we continuously strive to adapt and change to accommodate our guest’s needs and offer a truly superior standard of hotel in Dublin. We have been nominated for no less than 10 separate accolades in 2022 and three of our team members have seen great success at the Gold Medal Awards, each well-deserved. Many of our nominations were in the Irish Hotel Awards, an organisation celebrating the commitment and dedication of the hospitality industry in Ireland. We’re delighted to have a team who go above and beyond to provide outstanding guest experiences to our guests.

Marketing Manager of the Year 2022
Our Dublin hotel would be nothing without its team working hard in the background, making it look easy.
