A Cathay Pacific Airbus A350-900, registration B-LRX performing flight CX-301 from Hong Kong (China) to Dublin (Ireland), was descending towards Dublin when the crew advised they did have a nose wheel steering problem. Their company had already organized a tug to tow them to the terminal, they would most likely manage to vacate via high speed turn off E6 but might also get stuck on the runway for a while. Approach Control inquired about a possible hydraulic leak, but did not get a reply, only a "standby!". Emergency services deployed to their stand by positions with the information of a hydraulic leak requiring a runway inspection after landing. The crew further advised they were unable to adhere to speed restrictions due to vibrations. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on Dublin's runway 28, vacated the runway and stopped clear of the runway - emergency services taking position behind the aircraft were still blocking the runway. The runway inspection returned the runway to service without finding any anomalies. Emergency services also vacated the runway and traffic resumed on runway 28. The A350 was towed to the apron.

The occurrence aircraft was unable to depart for the return flight and is still on the ground in Dublin about 17 hours after landing.
