We spent 6 nights in this very pleasant B&B in Dublin. The building dates from the Victorian era and it's parlor, ideal for sitting, having tea and snacks, is reminiscent of the period as well. The B&B actually occupies 3 connected buildings. The rooms are small but perfectly fine, well appointed and well kept. The dining area is bright, overlooks...

Stayed here for 2 nights. The staff are friendly, helpful and cater to your needs. The B&B is very nice, the room was clean, bed comfortable and the breakfast was great. It is a short walk to public transportation, we had no problem getting to where all the shopping, pubs and restaurants are. The only issues I had were, the...

First, the staff are just amazing. They have great, helpful spirits and accommodated an early check-in for us so we could nap after a long flight. The breakfasts are stellar and have long hours of service. The rooms are good size and the location is lovely and quiet, if a bit of a walk to Dublin proper (30 min each...

Afternoon tea here was well worth for a visit for the cakes,the cakes were gorgeous but the sandwiches left a lot to be desired. The selection was poor and lacked flavour and variety. I also think there should been a selection of different teas and scones should have been larger and left plain as not everyone likes cream and jam...

As first time visitors to Dublin we selected our hotel based on online reviews, google maps and whether or not I could book using my frequent flyer points (and, of course how many points were required). We were not disappointed. The room was comfortable (but don't expect the double bed to be any more than that!), staff pleasant and breakfast...

We spent 3 nights at Ariel House in April 2017. It was wonderful. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed and its pillows (a big thing with me) were very very comfortable and it was very quiet at night. After flying in from the US the first night and 2 days of miles of site seeing it was...

We stayed here when we went to a concert in the Olympia. It was a good walk from here to St. Stephen's Green but we had a few pit stops. We managed to squeeze into the tiny car park in front but it looks like there's a rear car park if necessary. The room was quite basic. Very clean. Wifi...

Great stay at Ariel House. The building and rooms are good and location is excellent with Dart and buses very nearby and the air coach stop less than 10 minutes walk.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ariel House. Our vacation was off to a rough start with delayed flights and lost baggage but every single staff member was polite, pleasant, and beyond helpful. We arrived at the Ariel House at about 1130 and check-in is not until 1400. The manager on duty allowed us to wait for our room...
