First of all, let me open my review by saying that my father and I were basically nightmare customers. We did not make anything easy for the poor people here at the Ariel House, so it would have been perfectly reasonable should any one of our many whims and requests not be accommodated... and yet every single thing we asked...

The title says it all really. This is a lovely Victorian house 30 seconds walk from the Dart rail line. Rooms are spacious enough with comfy bed, tv and tea making facilities. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and staff were very friendly.

Hotel was nice - clearly it is in an old house, so rooms are smallish and not great soundproofing. But, OMG the breakfast is amazing!!! Best breakfast of our whole trip. Eat a scone with the raspberry jam - you won't regret it! Neighborhood is quiet, so if you want to be in the middle of the "party zone" this... More

We enjoyed our two-night stay at the Ariel House in Dublin. Staff were eager to be of service, very good breakfast, very close to the Lansdowne stop on the DART, only 3 (?) stops from Temple Bar. The Aircoach bus (8 euros) from the airport will drop you at Ballsbridge Hotel,only a couple blocks away.

Stayed at Ariel house both last year and this year for the Dublin Horse Show.. I CANNOT stress how friendly and helpful the staff are here. I had a 3 week old baby this year and they could not do enough for me. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, the breakfast is second to none - Top Class - will Never... More

We had a huge room and bathroom. So nice to have a room with space to move around in.Also a four poster bed which was an added surprise. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. Would always stay here when visiting Dublin as easy access to the city on the Dart. Station only a few minutes... More

So perfect! exactly what we needed after our flight from the US. Friendly, competent staff and very comfortable room. Great location in the Ballabridge section of Dublin. Delicious breakfast served in a lovely open room.

If It was not late (11pm) i would have checked out. I even re-read the tripadvosor reviews to make sure i was in the... More

I have reviewed Ariel House before and it's time to do it again. I have been staying at Ariel House since 2009 and come at least once a year. It has become my “home-away-from-home”. My accommodations have always been excellent. Breakfast can’t be beaten, I will take breakfast at Ariel House over any large hotel’s breakfast any day. The most... More

We loved the Ariel House. From the minute we arrived (very early), Cecilia, Deirdre and company were super nice and went to great lengths to accommodate us. We came very tired after flying overnight from Boston and San Francisco and the whole team jumped into action to get us rooms to nap as soon as they could. We soon settled... More
