Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

After a 0430 wake up call at home we arrived slightly jaded and early at Ariel House. I can honestly say I have never had such a lovely warm welcome in all my years of travelling.
Deirdre and Jessica made us feel right at home with a coffee and an impromptu breakfast that, in my opinion is up there with the best.
Everybody at Ariel house has a pride in working there and this shines through from the excellent concierge service ( yes, in a B and B!) to the restaurant.
If you're visiting Dublin, Ariel House is the only place to stay!

This is quite simply the best guest home you could wish to stay in!
The accommodation is made up of three elegant linked properties in a very leafy, safe area, within close walking distance of transport into the city.
Our warm welcome by Deirdre was much appreciated, especially the offer of a cuppa after a fairly stressful journey!
Nothing is too much trouble for the professional, polite, cheery staff, must mention Jessica too for her friendly chat.
I rarely sleep well away from home, but the bed was so comfortable, and the room both quiet and cool.
Breakfast is a major hi light - all ingredients sourced locally - every ingredient absolutely delicious!
The great reviews speak for themselves - do book your stay here - you're in for a treat!

I can't say enough about the wonderful stay in Dublin at this B & B. We arrived from Canada after flying overnight and were exhausted. The room was ready and waiting. Great bathroom! Not so great carpeting but there were slippers. The next morning we awake to a full Irish Breakfast - try the black and white. The serving staff are especially courteous and friendly. Would highly recommend staying here.

We were looking for a place to stay in Dublin but did not want to stay right downtown. We booked a room in this wonderful old building in a nice neighbourhood. It has free parking, a big deal in Dublin hotels. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any request and gave great directions and help The room was stellar. Very beautiful. We got a good night sleep each night. The Ariel is about a 20 minute walk from downtown but is only 1 block from a Dart station that gets you there in minutes.

The breakfast they served was incredible. There was so much choice and everything was delicious The service was quick and attentive. I have never given five stars to a guest house/B&B type accomodation before but this place had everything and was such a good value, I had to.

I took my fiancé for his birthday to Dublin for a few days. We stayed here at Ariel house and we were not disappointed!
It has remarkable reviews both on trip advisor and booking.com, so I decided this was the place to stay whilst in Dublin.
When we arrived our room wasn't ready but we were offered by the lovely reception, tea and scones with jam..my goodness they were gorgeous yummy.
The staff were very attentive without being intrusive and made us feel like part of an extended family. We were shown to our room which was the junior suite. My god this room is beautiful with antique furniture and huge four poster bed lush.
The area is leafy, quiet and pleasant.
We wanted to book tour bus tickets and reception offered to do this for is too which was much appreciated and helpful. We really could not ask for more from everyone at ariel house. Breakfasts we're wonderful, we had the buffet breakfast which is mostly cereals, breads, cheeses, little pastries and fruits. This was more than enough for us so cannot comment much on the cooked breakfasts as we did not try, although they looked yummy when we saw other guests orders.
There was a Miscommunication between the taxi firm and there drivers, charging us when they knew they shouldn't have, but when we informed the reception they dealt with this extremely efficiently and professional and I must praise them and say just how impressed and grateful we were for this. They did not make you feel awkward at all, whereas some hotels/guest houses so not like complaints or going the extra mile, at ariel house they have everything down to the last Z. Totally amazing.
We both would like to Thank you all at ariel House for all of your professional, kind and Welcoming experience. We will be back hopefully in the future.
Once again thanks very much!! Hayley and nigel xx

We found the location was fairly close to restaurants and the bus service in Dublin which is the way for most people to travel. The house is aged but updated and very nice and comfortable. The buffet breakfast and to order breakfast menu was extensive and all the staff very helpful. The only caveat would be if you use a wheelchair the access would be very hard. We would recommend the Ariel House over hotels in the city for its "homeiness" and excellent staff.
