Ariel House
Ranked #4 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Convinced by my wife, I didn't repent of my trip in Dublin.
Ariel hotel is very pretty and quaint. Decorated in classic style, with many elegant fabrics and fine materials. The room is spacious and well maintained, I didn't like the windows overlooking the garden which left little privacy.
A very positive evaluation to breakfast, full of sophisticated products (great cakes).
A downside is the location because the hotel is decentralized.

We were looking forward to staying at Ariel House since we saw the other positive reviews and we were not disappointed. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were very quaint. The location was incredibly close to the Dart - like a 50 second walk close. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made trying to figure out where to go and how to get there a breeze.

The Ariel House was just as us Aussies remembered it from our last trip overseas in 2012 to the Emerald Isle - great location, excellent breakfast, free car parking, wi fi, easy access to public transport and restaurants, quiet, pretty spacious room compared to other B&Bs, complementary tea and refreshments for the weary traveller, and a sense of old world charm. Overall we have stayed at the Ariel for seven nights and would recommend it to anyone wanting a top quality B&B in busy Dublin. It does have a lot of stairs due to its architectural style, so if you want to be closer to the ground make sure you book one of these rooms. If ever we are back in Ireland we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have quite a few steps and if u are like us and have way too much luggage or are a tad...

What a wonderful place to stay. My wife and I had just been through one of our worst travel experiences ever. It took us two days to get from New York to Dublin. What a difference the hospitality at Ariel House made. The staff were fantastic and could not have done anything more to make us feel so at home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We'll be back.

Wonderful room, great reception, easy parking, ok wifi, marvellous complimentary afternoon tea, filter coffee avail all day, kettle tea coffee in room, good heating, quiet room.
Highly recommend. Decor was very nice.
We stayed in junior suite, they carried in a proper bed for our daughter so we could sleep three. The view from window was stunning garden. The beds were all good. Bathroom was superb.

I stayed with family for three nights in September 2012. Large, clean rooms. Free wifi. Friendly, helpful staff. They went out of their way to find a park for our over-sized rented van. Great breakfasts with fabulous, fresh scones. Nice, suburban area. A short walk to a number of restaurants.

Great place, very clean, with great service and absolutely delicious breakfast, the breads are super tasty. The rooms are decent in size, and there's parking on premises. It's a little far from the city centre if you're walking (25 mins or so) but great location anyway. Just 5 minute walk from a great pub called Slattery's (very friendly staff) and next to the pub is a restaurant called Juniors, where the food is absolutely delicious.

Room Tip: The Garden rooms are on the lower floor so they are very quiet.
