I was very happy with my stay at Ariel House. The room was comfortable and spacious, the breakfast was quite good, and the hotel staff had good recommendations for restaurants and pubs in the area. I stayed here overnight before heading to the airport and I had a rental car, so I can't speak to its accessibility from the city...

I arrived a bit early and was immediately escorted to the lounge to sit down while they set about getting my room ready for me, despite the fact I had already told them it was no bother to wait. The room itself was lovely, my only issue was trying to find the main light switches, which were hidden behind the...

We stayed here for 2 nights in Dublin. Great value for price, as breakfast was included. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. All staff were extremely helpful. Rooms were clean and guest-friendly. Walking distance to transportation was very reasonable.

The hotel is charming and the staff very friendly and helpful, including writing down instructions. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The bath was large and plenty of hot water, but the showers were poor. It is possible that this will be part of the refurbishment which was starting after Christmas. The 'award winning' breakfasts were excellent. Just a...

We stayed here for 2 nights upon arriving in Dublin. This is a flat out wonderful place! We were here during the Christmas holidays and their beautiful living room had a warm and inviting tree with tea/coffee and sweet treats always available. The staff is just terrific. We had an episode where on our first night we took a taxi...

This is an older place obviously, which is what I wanted as I wanted a place with charm. I do agree with some reviews about minor details like maintenance, I had a lovely room with a rather odd bathroom that was a bit narrow and there was one creaky spot in my room (which was on the second floor), but...

I read the prior reviews before booking Ariel House and, yes, it is a bit away from downtown Dublin but the staff are such a delight and the tea and breakfast were fabulous. I would not recommend for a family but for a couple looking to relax and reconnect or a woman travelling alone, it's the perfect venue. The staff...

We chose to get a taxi ( thirty euros for the four of us) from the airport into the centre of Dublin as we had an early 0800 flight from Manchester, so we spent a few hours walking around the Temple Bar area and along the city centre shops and bars We arrived around two pm such a beautiful house,...

This place was recommend by a friend of mine. I wasn't disappointed it's really a very good Little hotel near the Aviva stadium. Made welcome at reception, given a room upgrade. Rooms are well appointed for a B&B hotel. TV is a little small but that's not important. Bed clean and comfortable. Breakfast was Barry good and service very attentive....
