A Very nice greathouse. The Staff and atmosphere are very friendly. My Room was very tidy and warm. The Food is delicious. My Only complaint was the broken shower in my room which had no hot water. Other than that it was a really nice experience

Friendly staff but not really our cup of tea - beds small and shower in the bath is a nightmare unless you are a contortionist. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. We had booked a night on our way into Ireland and another on our way home but cancelled the second night. I think you can do better for your... More

Stayed for two nights. Room: The room was a good size with extremely high Victorian ceilings. The bed was very comfortable. The floor tiles in the doorway of the bathroom were completely cracked/broken and moved when stood on. To me there were dangerous and could hurt your foot (easily fixable). Staff: Extremely friendly and helpful. Parking: I booked through booking.com... More

You're welcomed with genuine warm,kind, and caring staff. Elisa is an absolute dream, Luiz and Eoin are happy to help. Breakfast is fantastic, plenty to choose from and can't say enough of the cleanliness. If you're looking for an experience and sample the Irish welcome, this is the place to be!

My husband and I travelled with our best friends to Ireland in Nov. We wanted a place to stay in Dublin since we were flying out early the next morning. Upon reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I knew we couldn't pass up The Ariel House! It proved to be worth its ratings! The staff were so helpful, and accommodating. The... More

The location was great, about 25 - 30 minute walk to town or the train is about 100 yards down the road. The staff was very welcoming, we needed to leave early on our last day for the airport and they offered to serve breakfast outside of their normal times to accomodate our schedule

I would recommend Ariel House to anyone ... The rooms were cozy, clean, and the bathroom was enormous. Quiet at night time. Friendly staff. Breakfast was FANTASTIC! During our stay I was four months pregnant so food was important! The food was high quality and fresh AND look exactly like the photos ... Yummy! Note - Ariel House is not... More

We arrived on an overnight flight from the US and were desperate for a good breakfast and a little nap. The Ariel House greeted us warmly, provided an outstanding breakfast and worked to get our family of 5 into a room as quickly as possible to get a little rest before we started exploring Dublin. The rooms were roomy, the... More
