Reviewed 18 August 2013

The staff was gracious and evtremely accomidating, no matter the hour, night or day, the food was amazing (be brave and try the Irish breakfast, the black pudding is quite good if you mix it with your eggs), the rooms were lovely and their tee time was so much fun. Even more fun coming back to the hotel late after an evening of sampling how delish guinness is in Dublin, and chowing down on the left over tea cakes. I't's a few doors away from the Dart, so downtown is minutes away. I honestly can't reco this place high enough.

Lovely stay at Ariel house, as others have said the breakfasts are AMAZING - worth the price alone. Summer berry crunch followed by Smoked Salmon and Poached egg on Breakfast muffin was my favourite, along with the lovely cheeses.
Rosie, Deirdre and the rest of the team were so welcoming and helpful in booking tickets, restaurants and general advice. It was just so refreshing and welcoming.
The tea and cakes that are served in the afternoon are lovely (look out for the chocolate squares - they disappear particularly quickly!)
The hotel is located in Ballsbridge which is a very nice (if expensive) area of Dublin - there are numerous good restaurants around and these were busy even on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings when you would expect places to be quiet. Much better than the city centre restaurants.
Decent 20min walk into the centre, DART very close but we didn't use as the weather was OK.
Thoroughly recommend this hotel/guest house - at the risk of finding it fully booked when we want to return!!!

I stayed at the Ariel House 3 times during my trip to Ireland (a total of 8 nights) I stayed in 3 different rooms and all were comfortable. Dieirdre, Rosie, Eoin and the rest of the staff are so welcoming & accomodating. The breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious. The location is about a 20 minute walk to city centre. I look forward to staying there again on my next trip to Dublin.

Room Tip: The suites facing the street have large windows that can be opened.

We visited Ariel House for the third year in a row this summer and I can't rate it highly enough. The staff are excellent; helpful, friendly and well informed. The rooms are beautifully appointed, well equiped and exceptionally comfortable (I particularly liked the small jar of homemade lemon biscuits). The breakfasts are outstanding, with something to suit everyone's taste! It was my daughter's 18th birthday during our stay and the staff went out of their way to help make it a special occasion.

Mum & I returned to the Ariel House again this year and were not disappointed.The welcome we received was as if we were long lost friends,all the staff as always were friendly and very helpful. The breakfasts were superb and Deirdre and her team even allowed us the use of the dining room for our wee picnic supper on a couple of evenings, adding treats to make it even more special. (My Mum is 91 so tripping the light fantastic every night in Dublin fair city was not going to work!) We didn't have time to sample an Afternoon Tea ourselves, but I did witness one...a treat is certainly in store for anyone, a real feast awaits you! The Ariel, Deirdre and her team certainly make your trip one to remember. My partner and I have decided to spend our honeymoon there next year and can't wait to return and enjoy it all. Thanks for another great stay.

Room Tip: Room 230 is next to the dining room (but quiet) and perfect for ease of using the facilities if you...

We stayed for 3 nights in a deluxe room and were very happy with our stay. The room was large and nicely appointed and included an en-suite 4 piece bath. The room was furnished with nice antiques, the bed was comfortable and although there was no air-conditioning, a fan was provided on request for the warmer than usually Dublin temperatures we experienced during our stay.

Service exceeded our expectations. We were greeted warmly on arrival and any requests (boarding pass printing, directions to nearby attractions and restaurants, questions about meal hours, etc.) we answered with enthusiasm and courtesy.

The breakfast was everything others report - both a hot disk menu and all-you-can-eat assortment of breads, fruit and beverages are included in the room price. The food was of very good quality and the service was excellent. We were also very pleased with the included afternoon tea.

The only thing that appeared lacking was the quality of the toiletries provided. This is a minor complaint but higher quality toiletries would not cost much and would match the rest of the great experience at Ariel House.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room on the top floor as otherwise you may hear noise from oth...
