We have just returned from a weekend break at this lovely hotel. The situation was perfect with easy access to the centre of Dublin just across the street via the Dart. Our room was quiet and comfortable. Every member of staff was welcoming and helpful. Delicious cakes freely available in the lounge, a superb breakfast and late night snacks! We... More

I had seen this place advertised as a B&B but it is so much more, we stayed one night on our way to Galway and it was easy to find due to its location near the stadium on Landsdown rd. We arrived a bit bedraggled due to the weather and Cecelia organised tea and scones while we sorted out the... More

The hype on this place is absolutely justified. Took a bus from the airport and walked a couple blocks from the drop off point. An email from Ariel House suggested that rather than a taxi. The room was comfortable and spacious. We were on the second floor in the older section of the building which was perfect. A quiet street... More

We stayed 1 week. Nice room, outstanding staff, tram station 1 short block away - 10 min ride to city center. Great selections at breakfast including a buffet table with lighter choices. And, the bill at the end of the week was exactly what was quoted to me by email - NO SURPRISE CHARGES. A few small improvements would give... More

Absolutely wonderful boutique hotel. Huge rooms, huge bathrooms (separate bath tubs and showers) with towel warmers, excellent staff, and tucked away in a quiet and beautiful Dublin neighborhood. Downtown and other attractions are easily accessible via DART tram or bus. Loved staying here, hope to come back again.

We stayed in the James Joyce room which was extremely large and worth the extra cost. The regular rooms are good value, but nothing special. Very nice free coffee and cake option in the lounge, good breakfast options, and very friendly staff who went out of their way to offer excellent service. A cut above the average B&B

We stayed at Arial house for 2 nights. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are amazing and plentiful. Parking is tight but the hotels provides a free off site option. We had to move rooms twice for noise which the staff happily arranged. The street noise on the weekend can be high so you may want... More

The Ariel House was our first destination in Ireland, and we could not have received a more hospitable welcome. Upon arriving, we were not sure about parking, but were put at ease when the proprietor immediately went down to the street and paid our meter. Later they would move the car into the parking area for us. Tired after getting... More

It was a great pleasure to stay at Ariel House. The room (a twin room) was excellent, clean, nothing out of place. The entire breakfast experience was excellent, the staff were super friendly and the breakfast itself was delicious. We initially stayed for the breakfast (award-winning, had to check it out) but I will be returning for the warm and... More

I stayed a week at Ariel House in late June/early July and it was one of the best holidays I have ever had. I was there on the occasion of successfully taking my finals in Austria and I was accompanied by 3 friends of mine. Ariel House is a very beautiful house that dates back into the Victorian era and...
