The first time I stayed at the Ashling it was with a tour. We enjoyed the comfort of the hotel and the location. This time I was traveling alone with my daughter and booked the room independently. I really didn't like the room I was given in the old part of the hotel. It smelled old, was rather dismal, a desk fan, no air conditioning and noisy. The desk said it had a "deluxe" room for an extra 30€. It was completely worth it. Roomy, modern, comfortable. Perfect for us. Breakfasts are amazing. Short walk to train station, trams by front door. We took hop on hop off bus to get our bearings and then walked everywhere. Actually walked rather incredible amounts. Also took the hop on hop off Dart train to Bray. We really enjoyed that getting off in a few different villages. Bray was very fun with tents and vendors in the park by the sea. Had lunch outdoors in a nice restaurant but can't remember name. Didn't see many non Irish tourists which was fun for us.
Sometimes we ate dinner in hotel and food and service were very good. Staff busy but helpful and friendly. Very happy with hotel.
