It was a great pleasure to stay at Ariel House. The room (a twin room) was excellent, clean, nothing out of place. The entire breakfast experience was excellent, the staff were super friendly and the breakfast itself was delicious. We initially stayed for the breakfast (award-winning, had to check it out) but I will be returning for the warm and... More

I stayed a week at Ariel House in late June/early July and it was one of the best holidays I have ever had. I was there on the occasion of successfully taking my finals in Austria and I was accompanied by 3 friends of mine. Ariel House is a very beautiful house that dates back into the Victorian era and...

My husband and I spent the first two nights of our Ireland honeymoon at the Ariel House in Dublin. My father (who has spent a considerable amount of time in the city over the years) had recommended the upscale, quiet Ballsbridge part of town where Ariel House is located. The hotel is just a few stops to city centre via... More

I had the distinct pleasure of staying at this guesthouse on 2 occasions this past month. The service by both the front desk folks and the dining room staff was exemplary. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Yes the building is showing it's age and the pipes rattle and the floors are uneven but the great staff more than makes... More

We stayed in room 230 for one night. My hubbie and son headed off to a GAA match so I went ahead and checked in on my own. Deirdre was extremely warm and welcoming. The room was huge with 1 double and a single. It overlooked a lovely garden. We all slept wonderfully but I have to say the highlight... More

Set in a quiet area of Dublin but two minutes walk to the DART station with frequent trains into the city centre, Ariel House is a wonderful hotel, old-fashioned in the best sense of the word: elegant, comfortable and with friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast alone was worth a third of the price of the room!

We spent 3 weeks in Ireland, we started and finished our holiday our vacation by staying here. This guest home is located 20 minute walk from the downtown centre. The rooms were a good sized and outfitted with antique furniture. Their breakfast had the best selection and quality during our stay, they had over 6 choices on the hot menu... More

As an afternoon tea lover, I have tried most places in Dublin and the surrounding areas and have had varying experiences, most of them very nice. However, all have now been entirely eclipsed by the Ariel House! I organized afternoon tea there 2 weeks ago for myself and 5 friends. I can honestly say on behalf of all of us... More

We stayed in the family room downstairs. Although clean, it was fairly dark and in need of some renovations. Our toilet did not flush on the first try (you had to flush repeatedly). On the upside, the breakfast was among the best we had during our stay. What a lovely breakfast room and excellent service. We would stay again, just... More

Stayed here for two nights. On arrival was met by the lovely Deirdre who informed us the room would be ready in a few minutes. We where offered coffee and tray bakes while we waited and our luggage was taken to our room while we waited. The wait was less than five minutes which was fabulous! The room was amazing,... More
