Fantastic location, near the train (but you don't hear it). Amazing breakfasts! Very welcoming, nice place to loiter in the study to wait for your room, with coffee, tea, pastries, couches and a piano. Staff was very attentive and rooms were clean and well appointed. Only issue was the water pressure was not very good. That being said, I wouldn't... More

Our flight landed at 8AM Ireland time, but 3AM Boston time. We arrived at Ariel House at 9:30 very tired. The staff could not have been more gracious. They stored our luggage and offered coffee. We were directed to the sitting area and coffee was brought to us. Upon our return later in the day we found that our luggage... More

The staff went above and beyond with everything that they did! Breakfasts were fantastic! Convenient to the Dart station and within walking distance from some pubs and restaurants! I would recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone! We will be returning for sure!

We have stayed at the Shelbourne and Merrion Hotels, which are wonderful. However, the Ariel House is always our choice now, a comfortable guest house with a super staff including Deirdre, Cecelia, and the breakfast group. Everything is spotless and welcoming, with crisp, white linens. Location is very convenient, with the DART, bus or just a short walk. Restaurants and... More

I stayed with my family for ONE night although we were booked for three. I could not stay another night longer after the first. As like the other poor reviews we were placed in the basement. The hallway leading up to the room was dirty and dark. The room was dingy. The only window was in the bathroom and you... More

We stayed at Ariel House for a three day short visit to Dublin with our elderly (90yrs) parents. Ariel House is deserving of its high status on Tripadvisor both for the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the guest experience. The “can do” attitude is very refreshing and worthy of the very best Dublin has to offer. The... More

Great location for Dublin. Easy to get to from the airport - a 2 block walk from where the air coach lets you off on Landsdowne road. Easy to get around - About 1/2 mile+ to a stop for the hop on/hop off bus for a city tour, or the DART Train It's also walking distance to the best Irish... More

Ariel House is located in a pretty part of Dublin with a quiet, suburban feel but is very close to the city and it's attractions. It is within walking distance but also a short train ride away from the station close by. Our room was very large with a comfortable four poster bed and beautifully decorated with period furniture.

This is a lovely B&B, close by the Dart train and convenient to attractions (buses nearby, but we were happy to do the half hour walk to Trinity College). Staff members are very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast is absolutely wonderful: warm scones, granola and yogurt, delicious brown bread, and many other items from the buffet, along with cooked to... More
