The staff at Ariel House really went out of their way to welcome us - including helping us cart some heavy luggage up their front steps. The tea, coffee, and little pastries they put out in the front room were absolutely delicious and just what we needed to recover after a long plane ride. The room was beautiful and the view to the front courtyard was lovely! The best part of the stay was definitely breakfast though. The dining room itself is very attractive with windows to the back garden. The ... Read more

Ariel House is situated about 25 minutes walk or less than ten minutes by train from Dublin city centre. It's perfectly located for the AVIVA stadium and for the RDS. The hotel staff are helpful, the breakfast excellent with plenty of choice, the room a comfortable size and well appointed. Unlike some other places this trip we did not feel confined to a small space. There is plenty of eating and drinking within a five minute walk.

We stayed for 3 nights in a standard double room. The room was a good size for two people and very clean. The staff was extremely helpful, even when we were delayed in arriving until midnight. Perhaps the best part of our stay was the delicious breakfast every morning! The hotel is also located with easy access to the DART station and city buses for getting to the city center.

We stayed at the Ariel House for 3 nights with 2 nieces. The staff at every level went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, especially Cecilia and Dierdre. They even organized a surprise birthday cake at my husband's request, and it was one of the nicest cakes I have ever had. The breakfasts were top notch with a broad selection to choose from and the dining room staff were excellent. The location was convenient and it is in a very nice neighborhood with a couple of very good restau... Read more

We stayed at Ariel House for 1 night before flying back to the US. The service was great! Our luggage was brought to our rooms. We were able to print out our boarding passes. They stored my food in their kitchen for me, did rush laundry service, and scheduled a taxi to take us to the airport. The staff wwas really wonderful. We were not very impressed with the actual hotel though. It did have Victorian charm, but our room and bathroom were small. The room felt very dark. The water in the shower... Read more

We stayed 2 nights at Ariel House, the room was charming and had all the amenities-- shower worked great and so did air conditioning. This hotel is about a 25 minute walk into the city center- if that is not your style, note that the cabs are pricey. It cost 30 euro from the airport to the hotel, and about 10 Euro from the hotel to city center. Breakfast was fantastic! Staff very helpful and accommodating- I would stay there again!

Visually: It was not as nice as the photos. While the furniture was antique, it didn't feel super clean or well maintained. It was kind of like staying at your grandma's place. Yes, she has gorgeous antique furniture, but I kind of wanted to take a steam cleaner to everything and replace the springs in the couches and chairs. Also, the hall lights are fluorescent, so it added a weird quasi institutional feel. Functionally: There's no a/c, so I had to open the windows to get air, but the street ... Read more

We loved this hotel! We arrived in Dublin, and had nowhere to stay - our first two choices were booked, so as a last resort we booked Ariel House. Once we arrived, I was SO HAPPY that the other two were booked. This hotel is amazing! Everything was perfect and the staff was so nice. The breakfast was glorious, and we ordered pancakes off the menu. We stayed at a different hotel every night, and even the castle we stayed in wasn't better than Ariel House.

Compared to the cramped, overpriced place I stayed Galway, Ariel House was an absolute delight. Very reasonably priced, amazing breakfast, and a very large and spacious room. The staff were very helpful and I also found the location to be quite charming - a quiet suburb of Dublin, but within walking distance of downtown. My only small quibble was that my room had a bit of a musty odor, no doubt because it was located on the ground floor. Also the place is not very handicapped accessible, due... Read more

Nice, quiet, friendly place with a good location. It's about 15 min (15-20 euros) from the port by cab, about 25 min to the airport (25 euros) and you can walk to the center of Dublin in about 30 min. Very safe area with some good restaurants within a 10 min walk. The room was nice, nothing special. Had a window that opened but could use some more ventilation during July. Breakfast was really nice and a real treat.

We were on a family vacation (6 of us) and the hotel could not have been more pleasant! We had a load of luggage from our red eye from the states and they helped with storing while we explored Dublin for the day until our rooms were ready. The front desk personnel were some of the most helpful I have ever encountered in a hotel, arranging for taxis, advice etc. Breakfast was fresh and fabulous and rooms were spacious. Wifi was strong and easy access. One our our family got to experience afternoo... Read more

I absolutely loved my stay here. I will only stay in Ariel House now when visiting Dublin. The friendliest staff I have ever came across. The room was perfect. Very clean and bed so comfortable. Breakfast was hands down the best I have ever had. Amazing selection. I cannot wait to return again soon.

This was an excellent stay. We got a beautiful room (the James Joyce) with an amazing 4-poster bed and lots of space. The service and breakfast were all awesome. It's slightly more than a comfortable walk away from the main touristy area, but there are taxis and uber available.

My family and I stayed in Ariel House during this year's Dublin Horse Show. It is a fabulous place to stay in Dublin for many reasons, regardless of whether you like horses or not! Firstly, it's location - literally in the shadows of the Aviva Stadium, a short walk from the RDS and several steps from the Dart to take you anywhere you want in Dublin. Secondly, the accommodation is first rate - the rooms are beautiful and spacious. And finally, the staff are excellent. They are very attentive (esp... Read more

Minutes to walk to ballsbridge and other restaurants and academic and hilecher offices. A beautiful sumptuous breakfast buffet and gourmet hot breakfast courses. 3 Victorian Era townhouses combined, with great furnishings, some antique, paintings and modern conveniences. Lots of electrical outlets, good free WiFi. 50 feet to Lansdowne train and tram stop and 8 minute walk to Ballsbridge bus stop.

A warm welcome and superb service was apparent from the moment we walked into Ariel House. The room felt quite unique, it was spacious and quiet and very clean. The location was very convenient for the Dart station and Ariel House proved a suitable location for a pleasant walk into Dublin. The tea/coffee and cakes provided in the drawing room every afternoon were delicious as was the breakfast menu. The staff were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Clean rooms, nice welcome tea, fresh and rich breakfast in a nice room with view on the internal garden, very gentle personnel. Internal parking included, Temple Bar zone 10' drive by car. Will come back if again in Dublin, not sure it's possible to find a so good solution for this money.

We stayed at Ariel house for 2 nights at the start of our trip to Ireland. A bit away from the town center, its location is nonetheless attractive in a quiet residential neighborhood. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Service was friendly and attentive and breakfast exceptional. Keep in mind that this is an old house with the typical plumbing issues of old buildings. Drainage in the bathtub was especially annoying as the water pooled around our legs while taking a shower. Carpets and... Read more

Stayed three nights and really enjoyed it. Breakfast starts at 7:30, but you can get the buffet starting at 7, which we did on our last day. DART is so close we took it everywhere. Also we had a great room on the front of the main house facing the street yet quiet. Ceiling must have been 14 ft high. People were helpful and friendly. Great place for a first time in Dublin.

Even though this B&B was not in the heart of Dublin it was easily accessible via Dart. We reserved a STANDARD room which relegated us to the basement (request SUPERIOR room) - felt like we were in a dungeon. Doors were very difficult to open. Bed was the most uncomfortable bed I slept in during my 6 week travel. Hair dryer didn't work. Wardrobe doors did not stay closed and were a hazard at night in the dark.

The staff here are extremely helpful and polite, we were to early to check in but the lady at reception let us leave our luggage in a room until we could check in, which left us free to do all we had to do that day!!!

The staff was especially nice and helpful. The rooms were roomy and very clean. It is conveniently located next to the metro station although we didn't use it. If you like to walk around town this is a good place. Not in the center of town but along the commuting route.

that's a wonderful hotel in dublin. Just a little bit southern than center, it's only 200m away from DART Station, but center is also reachable with a 20-25min walk. Staff is fantastic and helpful, room large, really confortable and silent. The breakfast is really fantastic with a wide choice in the buffet and in the menu, all included. They also offer afternoon tea or coffee with biscuits and cake in a relaxing living room. Wi-fi perfect. Highly recommended.

The location of this gem couldn't be better. It's just a block or so to the DART and in a leafy, quiet residential neighbourhood filled with Dublin Georgians. The staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast is very good. The rooms could do with a bit of updating and WiFi is patchy but otherwise it's very good value. We were there for five nights and very pleased with our stay.

Situated in a very quiet zone, the Ariel House give you a familiar place were to stay if you visit Dublin. The rooms are ok and clean. Must try the Irish Breakfast, you will find a lot a good food to eat (can see in the picture what i mean). Overall a lovely place to stay if visit Dublin.

We chose Ariel House due to its Tripadvisor rating and were pleased with our choice. If you have a car and so don't want to stay in the city centre this is a great location - it is 200m from a DART station (Lansdowne Road) giving you quick access to the city centre for 3.75 euro return. There is limited car parking on site, which is free but better for smaller cars! Ariel House is more a small hotel than a B&B, with several staff on duty who all seem to aim to provide guests with a good stay and... Read more

What a great place to stay in Dublin! Location is fantastic, 100 m from the Landsdowne DART (train) station.This made it very easy to get in and out of the central city (2 or 3 stops out). They have a lovely formal lounge at the front and offer coffee/tea and cake when you arrive or you can help yourself during the day.

I chose this B&B from Trip Advisor and it was a great choice. I chose a junior suite and stayed in room 228. I HIGHLY recommend staying in this room. From the 12 foot high ceilings to the four post bed with canopy (we felt like a king and queen sleeping here) to the 10X12 foot bathroom, you will NOT be disappointed in your choice. Breakfast was excellent as my choice was scrambled eggs with bacon. We both really loved our stay here. If in Dublin, this is the place!

Myself and my husband booked to stay here after not being able to get a room in our usual hotel. I was so impressed. Room was comfortable and pretty, staff were very helpful and friendly without being OTT or false like many places. Room was really quiet and I loved the drawing room with tea, coffee and cake whenever you fancy. Breakfast was beautiful. Will definitely make Ariel house my go to when staying in Dublin!
