But breakfast is only the beginning. This small hotel is like a large B and B, very warm and welcoming with tea and coffee flowing in the afternoon hours. I was up very early in the drawing room reading my first morning and someone coming on duty at 6am immediately offered me coffee. We were there our first 3 nights... More

Having stayed here numerous times, I decided after my latest stay that I had to leave a review. I booked here for an anniversary celebration, for one night and afternoon tea. I mentioned when booking that it was a surprise celebration for an anniversary when I arrived, I realised we had been upgraded to an incredible suite. Afternoon tea was... More

I had the pleasure of staying here recently. The Hotel can be reached from Dublin Airport by the Air Coach Service, its a very simple journey costing around 9 Euros per person. We stayed in one of the lower double rooms, everything was spotlessly clean and the welcome was fantastic. Ariel House is actually an old merchants home, it now... More

We stayed at the Ariel House for our last night in Ireland and our only night in Dublin. I really liked that it was old Victorian house, with its big front room, where I think they serve afternoon tea, its winding hallways and stairs, the enormously high ceilings, and the architectural details. That spaceship of a stadium is really just... More

Good location if you don't mind walking. Easy access to transit and hop-on hop-off buses. Nice neighbourhood. The staff is outstanding. Super nice and helpful. Rooms are a little dated, But not a deal breaker, besides this is an old house!

We looked long and hard for the "right" location for our two night stay in Dublin. Ariel House is located in a quite neighborhood in the south of Dublin, 150 meters from a train station or a short 20 minute walk to the downtown area. The building and rooms are charming, the staff extremely helpful, and food excellent. The full... More

It was our first time in Ireland, and we were a bit surprised by all the kindness of the staff. We stayed there for two nights. The staff was very professionnel, always helpful. We got a baby cot as booked. The room was a bit small, but very neat, clean and with a bathtub. Excellent breakfast as well.

Stayed in this gem of a place for one night only, unfortunately, but it was a great find! Friendly, helpful staff, great room with lovely period furniture and four poster bed and to top it off the best breakfast I've had in any Irish hotel, such a choice! Would put a lot of the bigger hotels to shame. Will definitely... More
