This was our first stay here and we were pleasantly surprised by quiet location, old world charm yet modern facilities. Close enough to the city to get in easily, yet quite enough for a good nights sleep! Breakfast is superb and what a choice. The Staff were all very friendly and helpful. They also have complimentary tea, coffee and cake... More

We were warmly greeted after a long flight from the USA with tea, coffee and wonderful scones. The quiet location is in walking distance to the city center or you can take the Dart in. The stop is a half a block away. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast and service were absolutely super. The only recommendation I... More

The Ariel is an excellent place to stay while in Dublin, the best part is the fantastic breakfast, the best we had while in Ireland. The location is perfect, close to the best locations to visit plus an excellent staff!

My husband and I arrived from the west coast of the US exhausted after the long flight. We took the local airbus (and glad we did) to Ariel House, where we were greeted with kind hospitality and offered tea and scones. Both were delicious! Their scones are simply fabulous! We arrived early, considerably before check in time. But Deirdre, our... More

We agree with the positive reviews seen here. Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, quiet neighborhood with good access into center city. Our only negative was the bed was smaller than I expected, which could be my fault for not checking more carefully.

We liked the location of this hotel as it is away from the centre but convenient for the DART train into town (€2). Our room was spacious (255) with a nice seating area overlooking Lansdowne Road, the bed was comfortable, however the pillows weren't very forgiving. Staff were very helpful and offered a good concierge service. Breakfast was excellent.

Ariel House is an absolutely wonderful place to stay while visiting Dublin. The house itself is both quiet and charming, clean and comfortable. It is in a good location for touring Dublin. The staff was amazing! They were friendly, professional, extremely accommodating, and really made us feel welcome. The food was delicious, and we are sorry that we couldn't stay... More

Hospitable & pleasant restful stay. Plenty of tasty food. My hungry adolescent son enjoyed 2 main breakfasts. Walked to central sights - Trinity College, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral, St. Stephen's Green that afternoon. The following morning, we were graciously allowed to leave our car rental as we walked to the National Gallery of Ireland & the National Museum of... More
