I stayed in Ariel House recently for a gig in 3 Arena, and it was perfect. We got the room at a decent price and its location is convenient to get to the 3 Arena by taxi or the Bord Gais, and the Aviva Stadium is right next door.

We had stayed previously and had luckily enough been given one of the big rooms with a massive bay window overlooking Landsdowne Road, this time we were not so lucky. This time the room we were given was adequate but if I'm honest it was a bit tired, and really could do with a bit of TLC.

The bathroom was perfect and the shower was lovely, but mind your leg on the heated towel rail if your on the toilet.

Breakfast was delicious and our server was nice but never explained the continental cold buffet to us, I mean it didn't bother us because we knew the run of it, but at the same time maybe she should have taken the chance. We were the only people in the breakfast room (no we weren't late) so it wasn't like she was rushed off her feet.

The parking I must say is limited at the front but the car is safe and that is the main thing. All in all Ariel House is a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it.

We stayed here just one night while our son took an entry exam at University College Dublin. The breakfast was excellent, the staff extremely warm and helpful and the surroundings really charming and relaxed. We will be booking a longer trip here definitely in the near future.

Stayed here over the weekend with 2 friends. Not one bad word to say about the house. Its stunning! Decor was fab, we had a room with 2 doubles, was so spaceous. The staff were the nicest ever they were so welcoming the man at reception even took some bags to our room for us. Breakfast was delicious. I would definetly stay here again!

Ariel House has become a personal favourite place to stay in Dublin for good reason - they offer outstanding accommodations and service that keeps me coming back! This time, our flight arrived in Dublin very early in the morning, and although I had sent a request for an early check in (to which they responded that they would do their best to accommodate, and offered to store luggage and serve tea and scones…can't go wrong with that!!) the rooms weren't quite ready. Without hesitation, we were offered breakfast, which we gratefully accepted - and WOW! It's fantastic! A lovely buffet of fresh local baked goods, fruit and cheeses (their blue cheese is the best I've ever had!) as well as freshly prepared hot entrees (the poached eggs with smoked salmon is epic!) Once we were fed and rested, we felt ready to take on this wonderful city! It has convenient access to the public rail system, DART, a three minute walk to the Lansdowne station. The rooms are charmingly decorated, with all of the conveniences you need -if you do find you've forgotten something or need assistance, the staff make it abundantly clear that nothing is too much trouble - they are always happy to help with travel arrangements, directions, making phone calls on your behalf to secure reservations, taxis, etc. At one point, the chef was available to transport some fellow guests to their destination as their ride didn't show..now, that's above and beyond.
I appreciate the exceptional service this lovely guesthouse offers, and would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: There is the main house and also a modern wing - both are comfortable, quiet and charming

We have just returned from another excellent visit to Dublin and Ariel House. We arrived early and were offered refreshments while waiting for our room. We were shown to a lovely comfortable room with excellent ensuite facilities. Our breakfast was superb and such good friendly service. We had to check out in the morning but were free to leave all our luggage. As we were attending the rugby match at the close by Aviva Stadium we were encouraged to come back and have tea etc before heading home. When we got there a number of other guests were doing the same and there were lovely sausage rolls, cakes etc with tea and coffee and the staff working non stop. This is a tremendous B&B and I would recommend it highly. Their service couldn't be bettered. Even when we were eventually leaving for the train a male member of staff insisted on bringing our luggage down the front steps. All these little touches mean a lot especially to the older generation as we are. We look forward to returning next month again for another visit. Thank you Ariel House.
