Ranked #4 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2012

This is the third time I have stayed at Ariel House. It is such a lovely hotel, very friendly staff and very comfortable room. The breakfast was, as always, wonderful - so much choice. The location of the hotel is also excellent with the DART train so close by which can take you into the city centre or lovely excursions up and down the coast. I cannot wait until I can come back to Dublin and stay at Ariel House, it is like coming home.

Lovely, comfortable hotel in the suburbs, but easily accessible to city centre. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. Great breakfast menu. Had requested a quiet room-which is exactly what we got-room 238-with a lovely view overlooking the garden. Cannot praise this hotel enough-hopefully will get chance to return one day.

We stayed here on the 6th May 2012 and from the moment I walked in the door I was impressed.
I booked a deluxe double room for 89 euro, which for ballsbridge is great value so I wasnt sure what to expect, I had no idea it had won an award til I saw the plaque on the entrance wall.Lovely old building, parking onsite for free.
Tha staff was very friendly. In the drawing room there is coffee ready, you can ask for tea and also gorgeous freshly baked, scones, biscuits and other cakes- this was a lovely touch.
The room was very large with four large sash windows looking out of the front of the building.comfortable bed and a spacious room.
Landsdowne rd dart less than 5 min walk.great location.
Also Had a lovely taster meal in Bella cuba[cuban restaurant] -v small but lovely and intimate.
Breakfast in the morning was lovely, full irish -hot, not greasy just perfect.

I will certainly stay in this b&b again over other places ive stayed in dublin

This is a very nice hotel in the east end of Dublin close to the DART train at Aviva stadium. Staff were very nice. The room was a bit small as expected but very charming.

It's a bit of a walk to central Dublin (about 30-40 mins) but it is in a nice area of town.

The staff here are ambassadors for Ireland - welcoming and helpful. The room was very quiet and we were able to sleep soundly and recover from our travel delay. The breakfast was excellent as well. This hotel is in a good, safe location. After our two night stay, the staff helped us to our taxi and sent us off with some scones from our early train ride to Tralee. A great experience..

Dublin was the first stop on our trip, and we arrived at the Ariel House around 8 in the morning to be greeted with tea and pastries and a very warm Irish welcome! Of course our room was not ready to be checked into yet, but we were informed that it should be ready around noon and that we could leave our bags with the staff while we went out into the city. We came back to the hotel around 1pm, and found our room ready and our bags already in our room.

We stayed in the Herbert Mews part of the Ariel House, and our room faced the front of the hotel (plenty of natural light came into the room). However, and this is my only complaint about the place, the room was under the main entrance, so in the morning it was slightly noisy with people walking around above us. We chose the less expensive room in the Herbert Mews section, because we were on a budget, so I knew that we would be on the ground level. I just may recommend to others if you have a little extra money to stay on the first or second floor.

Everything else about the hotel was marvelous! Extremely helpful staff, who helped us out with directions, bus timetables, recommendations, and even ordered us a taxi for our departure. Breakfast, just like everyone says was amazing. Just to give you an idea of the variety of the menu. We had the potato cakes with smoked salmon, the traditional Irish breakfast, poached eggs with bacon, and poached eggs with smoked salmon. The staff in the breakfast room was also very professional and efficient. The room itself was very large for European standards, and the bathroom was huge with an excellent shower. Also, a very easy commute from the airport: we took the Aircoach bus from the Airport, and it let us off at the Pembroke Road stop, which was less than 2 blocks away from the Ariel House. I know other reviewers have mentioned that this hotel is a bit farther out of the city center, which it true, but definitely only about a 15 minute walk into the center and very easily accessible to bus routes. We took a taxi from Ariel to the Heuston Train Station, and the cost of the ride was about 16 euro, which we thought was very reasonable.

Overall, the stay at the Ariel House was very pleasant, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely and unique experience!

We recently stayed at Ariel House for a week, with our 4th grader. Everything about our stay was perfect. Excellent breakfast, extremely friendly and helpful staff, perfect location and reasonably priced. If (when!) we return to Dublin, we will definitely stay here again.
