We stayed at Ariel house on our last visit home and very quickly decided, it would become our "go to" place for all future visits! The staff were so welcoming and friendly and full of chat to the kids as well. The decor is traditional and so tasteful, you very much feel like you are experiencing something unique - Ariel...

Ariel House is walking distance from the high street of Ballsbridge and is quite close to Dublin city centre. Rooms are spacious; when in the room, I could not hear any noise. Excellent breakfast. Overall, it's what I would call a `family-run guest house' experience, as opposed to hotels with hunderds of rooms and long corridors. Cannot say anything about...

This beautiful guest house is a perfect spot in Dublin's elegant Ballsbridge neighborhood. Close enough to city center, but out of the fray and chaos. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful and the accommodations are top notch. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable--high ceilings, lovely decor, and a nice soaking tub--perfect after a long day of sightseeing. There...

I Cannot fault Ariel House, we had a lovely stay whilst visiting Dublin for a friend's wedding. The location is very convenient for the city centre. We caught the dart train which is on the door step and took just a few minutes by train to the centre. The rooms are very large for the price with beautiful high ceilings....

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.

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...
