Booked the rugby match, birthday treat for hubby and exam treat for my daughter. She is crazy about rugby and got to see Ireland play 27th August . Booked guest house just for 1 night and it was a lovely experience. Having stayed all over Dublin mostly city centre I can say that Ariel House is one of the nicest I have stayed in. Lovely and clean home from home really could not fault it in any way. Close to Dart which we used Sat nite to go in for a meal but think the next time we are down we will eat round this area . I feel Dublin centre, well Temple Bar area has become very trashy over the last few years I know I wont be staying in the centre again ! Going to explore Dublin 4 and beyond now !
Will be booking again shortly !

The service in Ariel House is first-class - attentive, caring front-of-house staff and friendly, responsive breakfast-room staff. Our room was really a mini-suite, with a decent bathroom, comfortable big bed, settee, comfy chairs, table and flat-screen tv. We travelled on public transport, so having the DART almost literally on our doorstep was a great boon. Otherwise, a 5 minute walk takes you to regular bus-stops. Its not too far to consider walking to the city centre and we did indeed walk alongside the nearby river all the way to Docklands. We know that balanced reviews are best but its hard to find the negatives alongside the free wifi, free coffee and biscuits throughout the day, free daily newspapers, and a breakfast that makes getting up really worthwhile. Sorry, but we are just smitten with Ariel House!

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.

I have stayed in many big hotels here and abroad and was hesitant about staying in a boutique like hotel such as this but the personal touch and warm welcome was so refreshing. I have only positive things to say, the dart is right beside hotel so going into town or anywhere along the dart line is made so easy. We were able to walk to Roly's Restaurant in Ballsbridge (10mins away) for a fabulous meal that evening. The breakfast was delicious, everything freshly cooked and a great choice, you will definitely be full for the day. We were tired on arrival and we received a lovely tray of tea and fresh scones to revive us. When I asked how much I was told it was complimentary - nice touch ! Beds very comfortable and bathroom with all the necessities. A good mix of the old with the new without compromising your desired comforts. Cant wait to go again.
