We stayed for a week at the Ashling and were very pleased. The location is very convenient (LUAS & Heuston Station are very close) but not in the heart of downtown so you do have quiet evenings. All of the staff members we interacted with were very courteous and helpful. The full Irish breakfast offered each morning in Chesterfields was superb. It was an absolutely wonderful way to start a sightseeing day. Breakfast officially starts at 6:45 a.m. However, we had a couple of out of town day trips with earlier starts. On those days, Chesterfields did offer a continental breakfast which was much appreciated. With respect to the rooms, we stayed in one of the Classic rooms which was clean and comfortable. It was on the 3rd floor on the Montpelier Hill side and did not appear to be air conditioned. This wasn't an issue in the fall but could be during the summer. About the only downside was the spotty reception of the hotel's wireless signal. You really had to be in or near the lobby area to hold a wireless connection. This is really a "must have" amenity for today's traveler, especially those on business trips. Management is aware of the issue - they were actively soliciting comments from guests on this topic during our stay. Given the level of service exhibited in other areas, I am confident that this issue will be addressed. Overall, we would recommend the Ashling to anyone visiting Dublin. When we return to Dublin, we will without question book again at the Ashling.
