Ashbourne, in County Meath, is just a short hop from Dublin so super convenient for anyone looking for a two star hotel out of the city but within easy striking distance from it. The accommodation on offer is particularly useful if you plan to fly out of Dublin Airport, which is a short distance away — no need to get up at crazy hours if you have an early flight.
The Ashbourne area is also a great base for exploring many heritage sites, as well as Dublin City with all its delights. It has easy access to the coast with its beautiful beaches and is close to countless golf courses, if that’s your sport. For two star accommodation, whatever your requirements, Ashbourne is a versatile choice.
Good Value Hotel Accommodation
In Ashbourne itself you can find a hotel with every amenity you are likely to need, at reasonable cost, benefiting from a central position, yet only a few minutes from the countryside, golf clubs and the Fairyhouse Racecourse. For business purposes, there are meeting rooms and free Wi-Fi. For a celebration, make the most of the nightclub, bar and lounge. Coffee-makers and cable TV come as standard in every room. You can eat in at some hotels but there is a variety of restaurants, cafés, pubs and takeaways in the town if you would like to eat out.
Out of Town Guesthouses
If you prefer a more tranquil setting, then the Ashbourne area is well stocked with two star guesthouses, close to the town, but still enjoying rural views and peace. The facilities to be found are exceptional, whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, with your family or a large group. You can find single, double, twin, family and quadruple rooms and apartments, some self-catering if you wish, and some extra special gems with a jacuzzi tub.
The bed and breakfast accommodation provided is ideal for those wishing to tour around the area, using the guesthouse as a comfortable base, even offering 24-hour continental breakfast if you want to set out very early for whatever reason.
2 Star Convenience
Staying in the Ashbourne area in your two star guesthouse or hotel gives you easy access to theme parks such as Tayto Park, which is only 10 minutes away from the town, heritage sites, equestrian events, rugby — Croke Park is nearby — and other entertainment such as paintballing and go-karting. Ashbourne is a perfect base to explore the Republic of Ireland, perfect for any budget.
