Reviewed June 13, 2014

Stayed last weekend & had a lovely stay.
Location excellent due to close proximity to Dart.
Hotel is epitome of relaxation. Friendly welcome, tea coffee & cake in lounge for your pleasure. Lovely touch.
Our room was at front of hotel overlooking Lansdowne Road & therefore in the Victorian part of the building. Very comfortable.
The breakfast choice is excellent & served by very pleasant staff.
Overall a wonderful stay.
We would normally stay in the Herbert Park hotel when in Dublin but not anymore.

Had 4 nights here early June to kick off our road trip of Ireland. Exceptional service throughout and quality breakfast. Our room was large and the bed comfortable, furnishings dark and in keeping with the victorian feel to the house. Free car parking was tight but well managed ( and worth it - Dublin not cheap to park!). We like walking so the 20 minute walk to town centre was no problem but easier options readily available. Minor quibble - no shelving in the bathroom. Will be staying here again.

This was a lovely hotel for two jet-lagged Australians. We stayed in one of the enormous four-poster beds in a downstairs front room which was very quiet. We loved the space in our room, and the breakfast was delicious. The service was also excellent. The only thing that stopped me ranking it as five stars was the decor: some of the furniture and furnishings, carpet etc went beyond charming and homely and towards needing replacement or repair, but it didn't affect our enjoyment of our stay. We found central Dublin an easy, level walk of a few miles, but for less able travellers some transport would be needed.

We were off to a rough start when the room we were given was below the kitchen. The noise did not stop all night and I was sleep deprived as a result. In telling management the next morning, we were given a better room with many apologies along the way. The next room was very nice and it was very quiet the next night. First class service and a good place to stay, but make sure your room is not under the kitchen.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not under the kitchen

Stayed one night in Ariel house - catch the train from Connolly station to Landstowne road, dont make the mistake we did and got off the stop before - Grand Canal street! We stayed in the main house first floor overlooking the mainstreet - the room was lovely - I think it was 224 - however it does need a new toilet seat. The room was clean and comfortable. when we arrived we got checked in quickly even though we were early around 12.30 ish - had a lovely coffee and fresh scones in the drawing room after we dropped our bags to our room (free of charge which is a great touch).
Well the breakfast room and the food is just stunning - I had the smoked salmon and poached egg and my husband had the full irish - both amazing! service great - overall would I stay here again!! Oh yes - just llooking for an excuse to take my next trip to Dublin so we can stay here again. thanks Ariel House for a memorable first stay.

Here's the quick hit, 10 being the best: cleanliness & comfort=7, location=6, staff friendliness=8, local knowledge=9.5, overall value=7. During our independent month long, 7 country trip, the Ariel had the best breakfast--and we ate some good ones. (Try the smoked salmon and poached eggs with their freshly made brown bread) While the Ariel is a 15-20 minute walk into the center of town, there are trams and busses nearby if you're not up to the walk. Cecilia at the front deksk was awesome. There was no question she couldn't answer, no tourist problem she couldn't solve. Local knowledge is the mother's milk of travelers, and the Ariel's staff helped make our stay in Dublin thoroughly enjoyable.

You don't often get a good experience from an old building converted into a hotel in a big City, but the Ariel Hotel is wonderful. The only criticism is the parking. The staff are great and that Irish hospitality is very refreshing, particularly after London! Everything is quality and you get the impression that they really care - it's not all done to a corporate manual. This is going to be 'my' hotel for all future visits to Dublin. I'm trying not to big it up too much so I can still get a booking...
