We have just returned from a three day stay at the Ariel House Hotel, which we had booked after reading positive reviews on Trip Adviser. We were not disappointed. It is a great hotel, located in a quiet leafy suburb close to DART station and local bus stops. We had rooms in the Herbert Mews - comfortable bed and pillows, clean room and bathroom, soft towels and a pleasant view over the garden. There was an excellent selection of foods at breakfast, the staff were helpful and pleasant and we never had to wait long for our cooked choices to arrive. Reception staff offered suggestions for visits and were helpful in booking our river cruise. The spacious lounge always had refreshments available. From here, we were able to watch the orderly crowd leave the Aviva Stadium after the Rugby Union Semi-final.
Staying at the Ariel House Hotel definitly added to the enjoyment of our four day stay in Dublin. We will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and we hope to return some time in the not too distant future.More
