We were on our Honeymoon and had flown overnight. We showed up at 9:30 in the morning. They took our luggage, gave us breakfast and invited us to relax in the beautiful front room with the Morning paper. And by 11:00 we were in our room, getting settled and shortly after snoozing away a sleepy afternoon. The staff were wonderful... More

We had travelled down to watch the rugby. Ariel House is ideally situated beside the Dart rail system and the Aviva Staduim. The rooms are very nice, clean and warm. We had afternoon tea on the day of our arrival. Definitely recommended, From the lovely sandwiches to the range of mouth watering pastries. Breakfast the next morning was gorgeous, some... More

My daughter and I spent 2 nights here in early February and could not find any fault. Excellent service, wonderful food and a very comfortable room full of character. We knew we were a 15 mins walk from the centre but we enjoy walking and it was no hardship. The weather was kind but if needed we could have easily... More

I quite often need to go to Dublin to visit our offices over there - have always stayed in one of the chain hotels - you know what you're going to get so fair enough. My boss recommended Ariel House to me and having stayed there, I can see why. Located in Ballsbridge and a 20 min walk to our... More

We had the great pleasure of staying in this hotel for a weekend in February. On arrival we were greeted as though we had stayed at Ariel House many times before and were now great friends with the staff. We were able to check in to a lovely and spotlessly clean room early. The facilities were lovely and there was... More

We visited Dublin for the first time and this was the best place to stay, it was near the rugby stadium and a train station so that we could get into city centre really quickly, The breakfast was amazing and filled us up for the whole day. The afternoon tea was a real treat and a welcome bonus. The room... More

Yesterday, I visited Ariel House for the third time in a couple of months for their fabulous afternoon tea. I've had afternoon tea in The Merrion, The Shelbourne and a couple of other places around Dublin but this is hands down the best afternoon tea in Dublin! The venue is a gorgeous Victorian house in the Ballsbridge area and afternoon... More

We stayed 2 nights at this wonderful hotel located in the lovely suburb of Ballsbridge. The hotel is situated on a road of very smart Victorian properties literally 2 minutes walk from Landsdown Road DART station. From the moment we arrived we were given a warm welcome from the friendly attentive staff, and even though our room wasn't ready (... More

I opted to stay over in Dublin at the last minute and I was delighted to get a booking at Ariel House. Even more delighted when I stayed. I love this location, in the shadow of the Aviva stadium, a really pleasant part of Dublin to take a walkabout and soak up the atmospheric and historic area. The place itself,... More
