We stumbled upon this hotel when doing an online search many years ago. We have stayed on several occasions and would highly recommend it.

It is situated in a lovely residential area in Ballsbridge, within walking distance of the centre of Dublin and only 5 min walk to the Aviva Stadium - so excellent location for when attending concerts. The hotel also has private parking facilities.

We have had several rooms at the far end of the hotel and even a room with a four poster bed – all with top of the range en-suite.

The breakfast served is excellent, with a wide variety of continental items to choose from and very helpful staff to take your order.

Altogether a lovely chic hotel which I would def recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Dublin.

We loved the location of this hotel since it is close to the city centre, but not right in the city. It was easy to get on the Dart and be in the city within minutes. Breakfast was great each morning as well. Our check in was a bit rushed and I had to ask about how to access wi fi. There was also some confusion by the staff as to what was open or closed on Good Friday. We were told that most restaurants would be closed...we took a chance and found that the majority of restaurants in the city were open. I would think a local hotel should know this. Otherwise, we had a very nice stay. I also really liked the coffee and treats available in the afternoons.

We recently stayed at this property for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is located on Lansdowne in the Ballsbridge area, just near the rugby stadium, many posh restaurants and the majority of embassies in Dublin. It is a terrific walking area and very safe. The hotel is staffed 24 hours, so checking in and out is a breeze. Everyone was super helpful and friendly. They have a wonderful breakfast room, with selections off a menu (the smoked salmon Eggs Benedict was awesome!) as well as a huge spread of scones, breads, cheeses, cereals and juices. We also loved the complimentary morning newspaper. In addition, they have afternoon tea/coffee and sweets out every day in their beautiful front parlor. Our room – called the George Bernard Shaw suite (room 222) – was very large by European standards. Including the bathroom! And the price is very competitive. Our observations regarding improvements would be small things - the furnishings are a bit aged and could use an update, the water pressure was bad (but that is not too uncommon in Ireland), the TV had to be turned on manually, and, most annoying, that the WiFi is very inconsistent and the signal poor in the rooms. Despite these items, however, we will certainly stay here again on our future visits.

We had trouble getting to Ariel House because there was a football match at the Aviva Stadium that night, and the police blockade the access roads. After driving round in circles a few times, one of the police finally let us drive down Lansdowne Road to a great B&B. There's off street parking and an elegant lounge with piano, sofas, complimentary cakes, and tea and coffee. Very atmospheric for an after dinner wind down before bed. The room we had was spacious and comfortable, immaculate, and good breakfast. Located a few minutes from the station, and a short train ride into central Dublin.

A lovely quiet place to stay. Excellent wi-fi, beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast. The reception is open 24 hours. Not sure how far public transport is, but with a car we found the location to be very convenient.
