The day we landed in Dublin there had been a freak blizzard which paralyzed everything. Our cabbie said the day before it was taking 4 hours to drive the 45 minute drive in from the airport! But any worries died away when we got to Ariel House. I had pretty high expectations, but the actuality was even better. It is a stunning, historical home, filled with gorgeous antiques and velvet curtains/sofas. We were in the William Butler Yeats room, which was the size of a suite, and contained a tall antique armoire, marble fireplace, window alcove with tall draped windows, and wingback armchairs , and finally a plush canopied bed. The bathroom was also roomy, modern and spotless. Amazing. On further exploration, we saw that the sitting room was similarly elegant. The piece de resistance was the breakfast room which was gorgeous. Gracious waitresses served us from a full breakfast menu, and the breakfasts came with the room! Because of the snow situation, I had to call from London and say that if the planes flew we'd be there, but if not, I would be unable to give them the required 24 hour concellation notice. The were so understanding and said do not worry about a thing. They continued to be that gracious throughout our two night stay. I cannot give enough stars to this establishment.
