The Ariel House is a gorgeous "Georgian Style" B&B/Hotel located right off of Lansdowne Road. The location is just east of the City Center of Dublin, but is a very short walk to the DART station (200 yards at most). We stayed for two nights over the first of July and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more.
My wife and I, along with six other members of my family (all adults) all stayed at the Ariel House. To say that they made our accommodations perfect, is almost an understatement. From our arrival to check out, the management and staff all made sure that we were all looked out for. I will say, that I also felt they paid equal amount of attention to all of the other guests at the hotel as well.
The Ariel House is probably more of a B&B, but has a bit of a boutique hotel feel, which is very nice. Our three rooms were on the first floor (ground level) and had nice views of the gardens. The rooms were very large, and the bathrooms provided everything you would need and expect in a top end hotel.
Our entire party arrived on the overnight flight, and while check-in was not until around 1 pm, they were more than happy to store our luggage and allow us to eat breakfast in their dining room. The dining room is a beautiful solarium in the back that probably could seat up to 20 guests. The food was excellent (the brown bread was amazing!).
Throughout the day and during tea time they would have coffee/tea/water along with bread/biscuits/etc in their drawing room. It was always nice to come back to after being out, and the room is well appointed with seating and reading material.
The location of the Ariel House is great for the DART station, although maybe a bit too far for walking to the Dublin City Center. In the "Embassy" region, the area has many tree lined roads and is very quiet. We found this to be quite nice though as it provided a bit of an escape from the activity of Dublin. Within walking distance were a few nice pubs and restaurants (perhaps 1/4 mile?) that we ended up going to during our stay.
Overall, we could not say enough about how great the Ariel House nor its staff and management were. All of our expectations were exceeded and we would definitely stay there again when in Dublin.
