We stayed at the Ariel House for four nights and were very pleased, would definitely stay here again. All of the rooms are different, but are furnished Victorian style. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean and modern. It's located in Ballsbridge, a nice residential area in the Dublin suburbs. There are several restaurants within walking distance. You could walk to City Center (probably 15 minutes), but it's a really quick trip on the DART. The DART station is very convenient, located just a block from Ariel House.
What sets this place apart is the outstanding service. We arrived early in the morning from the U.S., and were served tea, coffee, and scones while our room was being prepared. The staff helped us with dinner recommendations and reservations, made tour reservations for us, and advised us on traveling the DART. One day we took an all day tour to Wicklow, and it was cold, wet, and windy the entire time. When we returned to the hotel, we did not feel like going back out for dinner. Yanna helped us order pizza for delivery, and then set up a table in the dining room so we could enjoy our meal. There aren't many places that offer this level of attention! The entire staff is warm and welcoming.
The breakfasts are wonderful, fresh and something for everyone. There's also a pleasant old fashioned drawing room, with newspapers and an honesty bar in the evenings. Stay here--you will be comfortable!!
Also, it's a fun day trip to take the DART to Dun Laoghaire and several of the towns south of Dublin. We did this one day when the weather was spectacular, and really enjoyed the scenery and just walking around the towns.
