Stayed here for a weekend away without kids!!!! Dublin is a very cosmopolitan city, extremely busy and expensive!! Ashling Hotel is out of the main shopping/bar areas but that didn't bother us as it is very well placed for buses, airportlink, trains, trams and the city tour bus. Dublin's transport system is very good and you never wait long for a bus/tram. City tour is well worth doing only 14 euros per adult and ticket last 24 hours and you hop and off as many times as you like. The tour guides are very funny and make it most entertaining. The hotel was fine for a short break, bed was hugh, room spacious and clean and housekeeping no problem as clean towels, more toiletries, coffee, tea etc left each day. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Guiness lounge has a nice atmosphere, Cobblestone Bistro food was gorgeous but there is no atmosphere, no background music playing etc. We went to the local pub "Ryans" up the road, very welcoming and friendly. Shops are pretty much the same as in any city and lots of them. Temple Bar we went to Fitzsimmons right on the river Liffy with a roof top open bar which was really nice, shame it faced the back and not over looking the river. All in all we had a great weekend and would certainly recommend the Ashling if you do't mind a bus ride out and taxi ride as last tram is 11.30pm.
