I stayed at Ariel House during my very first stay in Dublin, 4 years ago. It was now time to go back, and my stay was amazing, just as expected. The drawing room was lovely decorated for Christmas, we got served hot tea and cakes every evening by the staff and we got treated to the afternoon tea. That was... More

Both the buffet as well as the ordered meals are very tasty. A real good start of the day. Point of attention are the chairs in the room as they look a... More

Booked a standard room. Ok room and a very good breakfast. A bit long to the city centre if you do not like walking. But great with the airport bus right next to the hotel. Tried some nice restaurants in the nearby area.

But once inside you wouldn't notice! So peaceful and friendly, with an outstanding breakfast. Great rooms in a lovely old Victorian house and a large comfortable sitting room for guests. Great for Rugby days, two mins from Stadium, and DART trains. Just a few minutes from anywhere in central Dublin by the train, or car or taxi, and on a... More

This house was recommended by friends who were here in the fall and we are glad they did. We had a wonderful 4 night stay in the lovely and safe area of Ballsbridge and either walked, took the bus, or a taxi to the attractions of Dublin. The neighborhood restaurants were terrific and close by and this house serves the... More

Very quaint and helpful staff My wife, daughter and I visited in early June. The B&B was on a side, right off a main drive. It was about a 30 minute walk to the main action of Dublin. The room was as it was described and very nice. Being warm, and no AC, the staff did bring us a fan... More
