I have been meaning to write this review for weeks and finally made the time. We stayed in Ariel House on a Friday night a few months back and had such a wonderful experience from the one we arrived until the moment we left. We were greeted warmly on arrival and the young man at reception checked us in promptly... More

I’d thoroughly recommend this guest house. It takes 30 minutes to reach via the airport coach, with the coach stop (Ballsbridge Hotel) only a 3 minute walk to Ariel House. It takes roughly 20 to 25 minutes to walk to the city centre, or a 10 Euro taxi if you prefer. Lansdowne Road train station is a 1 minute walk... More

We've just spent 3 nights in Ariel House and I have to say it was great overall. The service was excellent with a great breakfast in the conservatory and the staff were very helpful and charming and willing to do anything they could to make our stay as good as it could be. The rooms could do with a little... More

Booked a twin room for three nights. We had room 235 on the front ground floor over looking the garden. The room was spacious and warm. The bed was a little hard for my liking but ok for a short trip, you can as others have said hear the floor boards above you but just take ear plugs! It's a... More

We stayed here for a few days while visiting Dublin, the location was just about okay and although we had a bit of a walk, the room we stayed in made up for it. The room we stayed in was gorgeous, there's a small reception area with tea and biscuits and the breakfast was top notch. Thanks you for having... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Ariel House for two nights in early April 2014. The staff were absolutely wonderful and all the nicest people! They were generous and spot on with recommendations and advice. We were even upgraded to two rooms from a large single room for our family of four because they had some extra space that... More

We stayed 3 nights in a Standard Twin Room at Ariel Hotel. Unfortunately, we were not very lucky with the room we got. The wifi was not working there and therefore we had to go to the Drawing room to use our Smartphones. According to the Hotel they will get a better Wifi soon. Several things were not working in...

We took the airport bus to a stop nearby and walked to Ariel House. We arrived exhausted after flying in. Deirdre observed our arrival and helped us in, welcomed us, and gave us a place to rest as we waited for the room to be ready. Our bags were carried for us and delicious refreshments were delivered to us. How... More

Our family of 6 stayed at the Ariel House during the St Patrick’s Day Weekend, what a fantastic B&B in Dublin. Deirdre and the rest of staff are amazing, extremely nice and helpful. Outstanding service. We arrived early in the morning and they were very accommodating and offered us coffee and tea as we waited for the room keys (loved... More

Hotel was nice - could use a few updates (bathroom in room 222). Staff was friendly and helpful. I don't base my stays on WIFI availability BUT the 'complimentary WIFI' was basically non-existent in the rooms. Even in the downstairs Drawing Room - the network was hit or miss. We were told there had been a recent upgrade but apparently... More
