The hotel is extremely clean, the staff more than welcoming and they truly care about their guests. I was not feeling well the morning after our stay and was surprised to have tea and a croissant delivered to my room, no charge. Upon checkout the deek clerk asked after my health. Stayed here the last night of our trip, will... More

We had a fantastic 3 night stay @Ariel house. We were checked in and out with efficiency with staff on hand to provide tips of where to eat and what to do and call us a taxi. The breakfast is amazing as most other reviews have said-compliments to the chef definitely. The wait staff were also fantastic and worked with... More

We took the AirLink 747 downtown from Dublin Airport. We asked some friendly folks to point out the connection to the Luas. There was a stop across the street from the football stadium and walking distance from Ariel House. The room was lovely with a nice view of the quaint street. Food was excellent. They were very accommodating to my... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Irish hospitality at its best, Cecilia was most warm friendly and welcoming together with the tea coffee freshly made scones and cake offered to us on arrival. Our room was comfortable and clean.... the bed with fresh white linen was just soooo comfortable, warm heaters (even a toasty warm towel heater). You will not... More

We were two adults and two children staying in this hotel for one night. Apparently, there are only a couple of rooms in the hotel for 4 people, and ours was in the basement. The service was very good but the room seemed old, the furniture, the bathroom, the windows, the TV, everything seemed in need of an update. The... More

The Ariel House is really great. The location is really convenient (walking distance to the city center, easy to find, train nearby,…), the staff is helpful and nice, the hotel is clean, comfortable and beautiful. The breakfasts are great. It’s really a good place to stay for a few days and visit Dublin and its surrounding.

Many reviewers have commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of the Ariel House staff - I agree - they go the extra mile to make guests feel relaxed and welcome. The hotel is situated well away from the frenetic centre of Dublin, yet is extremely convenient to a DART station (3 minutes walk) and to many restaurants and pubs. The... More

Fabulous hotel in a great location beside the dart. I love staying here. There's a great welcoming feeling in it. Rooms are spotless and cosy. The breakfast is amazing. Looking forward to my next visit in July.

My sister and I had the delightful privilege of staying at this wonderful, friendly comfortable house in Ballsbridge area of Dublin. The staff are so friendly, helpful, polite, and encouraging. We were kindly assisted by Deirdre, and we were given perfect advice in anything we asked. Each person who worked at the lovely Ariel House went out of their way... More

I have been to Dublin many times and this was the first time staying in the Ballsbridge Area. Ariel House is a lovely Victorian brick house in a beautiful, tree-lined, Dublin neighborhood. It is perfect for the vacationer who does not want the craziness of being in City Center, needs parking and easy access to City Center. The Dart (subway)... More
