The hotel itself is just over a mile away from the town Asbourne which is also where the nearest bus stop is to get into Dublin. There is a marked bus stop just outside the hotel but at the moment the bus does not pass it and therefore you either have to walk into Ashbourne or get a taxi. The walk is quite pleasant however, and is all flat!
The hotel itself is quite new and the rooms were great. Very clean and well appointed and as always, the beds are soooo comfortable in the Marriotts! The baths are huge and loads of steaming hot water.
The gym is free is guests and has all the latest equipment and there are also various gym classes ie. pilates, aerobics etc.
If the location was slightly better, this really would be an all round 1st class place to stay for to itself tourists but I do think it is more geared to business people.
One last thing - Dublin was VERY expensive and I'm not sure its all to with the shocking exchange rate!
