Ireland and the US have shared a special relationship for many centuries. Our good relations are based on common ancestral ties and shared values, something many other countries envy. Dublin and Ireland has thousands of visitors from the US every year, usually enjoying a couple of nights in the capital before travelling around the country to explore the best of the Emerald Isle. With so many hotels in Dublin, it can be hard for first-timers to decide which hotel is best for their trip and where they will find the best value for money, At Ashling Hotel, we are lucky to share our hotel with hundreds of guests from the US every year, many of whom return again and again for our hospitality among other reasons. Here are some of the many reasons our 4-star hotel is preferred by visitors from the USA.
If you’re only here for a couple of nights, the last thing you want is to have to commute in and out of the city to enjoy the best of Dublin. Ashling Hotel is based a short walk from the centre of the city, surrounded by restaurants, shops, museums, galleries and the biggest park in Dublin, Phoenix Park. We make it a pleasure to enjoy the best of our city, on our doorstep.
European hotel rooms are notoriously small when compared to US rooms. We have much less space than the vast ground in the USA and there are limits to how high we can build, leading to relatively cosy rooms. Ashling Hotel in Dublin has large guest bedrooms with all of the amenities you would expect from a 4-star hotel in Ireland.
As well as bedroom sizes, bed sizes in Europe are relatively smaller than our US counterparts. We have a range of bed sizes in Ashling Hotel ranging from single beds – what US guests would call cots – to US king-sized beds. Select your preferred bed size when making your booking.
Getting here is easy and onward travel is even easier! From the airport, there are dedicated buses that leave you a 5-minute walk from the hotel, ideal when you’re carting around lots of bags. The Luas practically passes our front door, alongside dozens of bus routes making onward travel easy. We’re a five-minute walk from the main train station in Dublin so you can get to your next stop quickly. Ask any taxi driver in Dublin to take you to the Ashling Hotel – everyone knows where we are!
If you’re travelling around Ireland by car, you’ll likely pick it up in Dublin, a city notoriously expensive for parking. Street parking is limited, and it might mean leaving your car a walk away from the hotel. At Ashling Hotel Dublin, we have secure underground parking available for guests at a reduced cost. Depending on the location for your onward travel, you’ll skip a lot of the city centre traffic and those dreaded one-way systems!
The Luas is Dublin’s light rail system, getting you from one side of Dublin to the other quickly, cheaply and easily. It’s ideal for exploring all sides of Dublin with minimal walking. The closest stop is a couple of minutes from our 4-star hotel in Dublin 8. It will take you to the O Connell Street shopping district, past museums, parks and so much more. Ask our team for directions or instructions for tickets.
While cooling air conditioning is not often needed in Dublin aside from the height of summer, each of our guest rooms in Ashling Hotel has aircon available. It’s more likely you’ll need a heating boost if you’re here outside of summer and each room has a personally controlled system so you can set to your preferred temperature.
Above all else, we are complimented on our warm welcome. You’ll always find a Cead Mile Failte when you stay at Ashling Hotel from our friendly, helpful team and nothing is too much to ask. We’re happy to help with directions, recommendations or just to stop for a chat if you’d like one.
