Everything was first class: beautiful rooms, fantastic staff, and quiet location. You can tell a lot about a hotel by how the staff deals with an emergency and when one came up for us, the staff did a great job. We ordered a cab for the airport the day before our departure. When the cab didn't show, the staff went... More

A very nice B&B within walking distance of Hop-On Hop-Off bus to tour Dublin and walkable into Dublin as well. The breakfast was superb and the accommodations were lovely. It is a bit of an upscale place to stay and the prices reflect this.

I stayed in Ariel House for 4 nights in November 2015 when I was in Dublin for my visit to The Web Summit, so this is a long overdue review.

Ariel house is a great choice somewhat outside of the center of Dublin but still walkable to the center (or train service adjacent). We had a spacious room, with delicious breakfast, and complimentary afternoon tea in the parlor. Overall it is more like staying with a (wealthy) great Aunt than a hotel. A highlight of our trip to Ireland.
