“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I stayed with family for three nights in September 2012. Large, clean rooms. Free wifi. Friendly, helpful staff. They went out of their way to find a park for our over-sized rented van. Great breakfasts with fabulous, fresh scones. Nice, suburban area. A short walk to a number of restaurants.

Great place, very clean, with great service and absolutely delicious breakfast, the breads are super tasty. The rooms are decent in size, and there's parking on premises. It's a little far from the city centre if you're walking (25 mins or so) but great location anyway. Just 5 minute walk from a great pub called Slattery's (very friendly staff) and next to the pub is a restaurant called Juniors, where the food is absolutely delicious.

Room Tip: The Garden rooms are on the lower floor so they are very quiet.

Great hotel in a good location near the Stadium and restaurants/bars, A very cozy hotel with great service in a quiet area (not game-day). Breakfast was good and the staff were phenominal. I would highly reccomend. A great value. Only drawback was parking is tight.

After a mix up in rooms the first night and a not so pleasant response from me, the staff at Ariel House were super kind, caring and pleasant. Deirdre and Agla were patient and understanding. BreaKfast (and espcially the porridge & brown bread) is fantastic. They even packed us a "to-go" bag since we had to leave for the sirport so early. Request rooms on the upper floors....the WB Yeats suits is lovely....tea and snacks always welcoming in the sitting room...why would anyone stay anywhere else? Porter available to help with bags, etc was most helpful. It's like visiting Irish cousins.

1 Block from metro stop, tons of restaurants 2 blocks away including Roly's, Criowes' Tavern (great fries) Free parking. No air conditioning but [plenty of fans.

I have stayed in Ariel House on a number of occasions over the years, mostly when in Dublin for work. I have never ever been disappointed and if I have to spend a night in Dublin now, my first port of call is always this beautiful guest house. Even when given the last room they have, I feel like I am being treated to something special. Every room I have stayed in is spacious, comfortable and warm with luxurious bathrooms. Every room is different too, so it's always a lovely surprise to see where I end up. Breakfast is possibly one of the best I have had in any guesthouse (and I am fussy) and the staff and management are charming and helpful. The guesthouse gets a lot of tourists, but also caters well to business travellers and couples. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: They're all gorgeous!

The Ariel House is in a lovely, quieter area of Dublin. That means it's a little distance to shops and restaurants, but we walked and it is no more than about 15 or 20 minutes. Service was very good. The room was clean and comfortable, and had a front view. The bathroom had a blow dryer, a bath/shower, and a towel heater. The shower could have had better pressure. The breakfast may be the best feature--definitely a must-try! And home-baked pastries are set out in the drawing room (lobby) every afternoon, as well as tea and coffee. The price of 85 euros per night was an incredible deal. One drawback for some would be climbing the stairs with your suitcase--both in the front of the building and up to your room. No elevator.
