This was our first lodging on our trip to Ireland and it was absolutely gorgeous. Whenever anyone asks me, I always describe the Ariel House as a boutique hotel. Not a B&B, but not an impersonal big hotel either. My husband I absolutely loved our stay here. The Ariel House is three (I think) Victorian connected townhouses (right in the...

I visit Dublin 3-4 times a year because my kids and grandson live there, albeit in a house too small to accommodate Granny. I am so lucky that the Ariel House is across the street! The important thing to recognize about the Irish system is that a Guest House is different from both a B&B and a hotel. Unlike B&Bs,...

We stayed a weekend at Ariel house. It was perfect! the staff was friendly and helpful. Good location (1 km to city center) and right next to a train station. We had a very nice, quite room. Would definitely go back. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely staff. Grand old building. Superb breakfast. Decent towels. Good location for DART. But... Tired furniture and fittings. Very poor wifi. Noisy floorboards. No Kleenex. Micro TV. Slightly grubby. Cold, no spare blanket.

I stayed here on a business trip and was not disappointed. A beautiful house in abreast setting. Lots of steps up to the house which can be a bit tricky for luggage. Had a lovely bedroom at the front of the house, a very comfortable room, with lovely furniture. The breakfast, however, is the best part! Delicious fruit, stewed and...

We chose the Ariel house for our last night in Dublin, mostly due to the rave reviews of the caring staff and the breakfast. We booked directly through the hotel website. My mom and I requested a room on a lower floor, as I had had surgery on my legs the day previous and found stairs difficult, which I specified...

Superb value for money in this characterful Victorian house, actually three houses joined together. Very good breakfast, overall this place punches above its weight. Very nice Dublin welcome, tea and cake always on hand in cold weather

This was a great place, a little off the beaten path but still close to many attractions via transit or walking . The staff are very welcoming and helpful to find eateries within walking distance. The service was terrific and the breakfast exceptional- still missing those scones!!
