Stayed here for a weekend break, from 24th-26th April for our wedding anniversary. From the time we arrived, we were extremely well looked after. Cecilia (guest relations manager) made us feel very welcome, and introduced us to Deirdre (G.M.) who also welcomed us warmly. Cecilia showed us to our room, which was a large double room looking out onto beautiful... More

My wife and I spent six nights at the Ariel House in mid-April during our first visit to Ireland. It's a pleasant 20 minute or so stroll into the city centre but the DART is right there is you prefer not to walk, The staff was uniformly excellent starting before the trip advising about getting to the hotel from the...

Recently stayed here for a short trip to Dublin. The hotel is situated about 3 minutes walk away from the DART station. You can look out of the window an see the AVIVA Stadium shining down over you. The property is a Victorian house with all modern amenities, the plumbing is sometimes a little noisy however this is expected from... More

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
