We decided to stay in Ariel house for the first night of our 3-day visit to Dublin & surroundings. We had a family room in Ariel house for a very reasonable price; we selected Ariel House based on the reviews from other travellers and on the fact we needed a place to park our car.
We planned to find some B&B's for the other 2 nights, which we didn't book ahead.
After staying one night, we liked our stay so much that we decided to stay in Ariel House all three nights of our stay. What stood out (and made us stay longer) was the service, the breakfast and the lounge (with super comfy sofa/chairs and nibbles+tea galore).
We felt very welcome and comfortable; staff was very attentive but never pushy. Ariel House has won some awards (evident by the plaques and certificates near the entrance) but during our stay they really did live up to expectations!
Our room was a spacious family room, with two king beds and a bathroom, along with a seating area and small desk. The finishing of the room (and bathroom) is really fine, nothing exceptional but it's got everything you need and is clean.
The location is such that it is a 20-min walk into town (which was a great walk as we had fine weather - in the rain it would not be so great). Getting back we normally used a taxi, which were very easy to find in Dublin city centre but also around Ariel House.
We stayed as a family of four with young teenagers. We did not see any other kids during our stay but Ariel House is welcoming for older kids. Set in a historical building, you have to go up&down some stairs to get to the rooms so if you are traveling with either elderly people or prams this may be something you want to check with the staff in advance.
We would certainly recommend staying here and we will certainly book again on our next visit.
