Ashling House was built in the 1930s and boasts a wonderful location in the leafy suburb of Drumcondra, which has plenty of public transport connections to the Dublin city centre and Croke Park (the National Gaelic Football stadium). Ashling House B&B offers guests accommodation on a par with that of a highly rated hotel or guest house as well as full use of its recently landscaped Private Garden to the rear of the house. Buses to the city centre run frequently and the trip only takes about 15 minutes, at which point you’ll be able to walk around the relatively small area which encompasses Trinity College, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, O’Connell Street, The Ha’penny Bridge and St. Stephen’s Green. Ashling House is a truly relaxing get-away yet is still located within short reach of all the attractions Dublin has to offer!
The beautiful home was built in the 1930’s and has a several room options available to choose from; single, twin, double, triple and quad. Two of the rooms are large enough to be 3 or 4 person family rooms.

On the Map: Dublin, Ireland’s Capital City is located on the east coast of the country, and is well served by infrastructure linking it to all parts of the Emerald Isle.
Dublin is a lively cosmopolitan city brimming with culture. You could spend your time strolling the streets soaking up the atmosphere, relaxing in its cafes and bars or you could check out its myriad historical, literary and cultural delights. The 8th century illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells, must be viewed. It is on display at the impressive Trinity College, Ireland’s first university (founded 1592) in the heart of Dublin. For the rest of your time, it is up to you how much you want to pack in. Phoenix Park (twice the size of New York City’s Central Park), Georgian Dublin around Stephen’s Green, Dublin Castle, the National Botanical Gardens, National Museum, Kilmainham Gaol and the Hugh Lane Municipal Art Gallery are all highly recommended stops on your tour. Then there’s the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery. A visit to Dublin’s Temple Bar to experience the lively Dublin pub culture is a must, though many of Dublin’s best bars can be found outside this area in the streets and laneways around Grafton Street, the shopper’s street of choice. Purchasing a ‘hop-on, hop-off’ Dublin Bus Tour ticket is a great way to get around and see all the major sites at a very reasonable cost.
