This was our second stay at Ariel House. This time we decided to splurge for a Junior Suite and we were not disappointed. Our room was beautiful, very spacious, and a wonderful bathroom with tub and shower. All of the staff at Ariel House were extremely helpful- whether it be directions into Dublin, ice and wine glasses, or dinner reservations....

Lovely guest house. Very quiet, comfortable and clean. Staff are lovely. Always available and ready to help. Rooms are amazingly comfortable. Breakfast is outstanding. Food quality is the finest with perfect service. Complimentary tea and cakes in the afternoon in the most comfortable drawing room. Amazing.

Beautiful Victorian residence. Very tastefully furnished and decorated. Stall go the extra mile. Coffee and cakes available all day in lovely Drawing room.

A wonderful location, close to Dublin central, but south enough to feel a bit of peace and quiet at the end of a busy day. Wonderful restaurants very close by, and still close enough to walk to Trinity College, Temple Bar, museums and numerous must-see sites. The house is such a beautiful place...clean, comfortable, and staffed with extremely helpful people!...

Ariel house was very cute, in a great location and priced pretty well. I loved that it had it's own car park, one less thing to worry about. The rooms are a little dated but that's sort of part of it's charm. The best part is breakfast, it is just lovely. The room it's held in is beautiful and the...

The Ariel House is in a wonderful location in Dublin, especially if you want to be close to the city but not actually on the city streets. It is less than a block from the DART, the transit city for the hotel. DART allows you to catch trains, trams, buses, etc. It is within walking distance of some very good...

excellent service, friendly staff, very good breakfast. The location is absolutely great, in less than half an hour your can walk to down town, and there is a nice beach very close near by. I would definitely choose this location again for a stay in Dublin.

I can not add too much to the reviews that are posted about this guest house. The staff is friendly and helpful and the physical setting excellent. The breakfast is warming and well prepared. The oatmeal is terrific. The wifi is very good. I will stay here again.

Clean rooms, GREAT breakfast and an incredibly warm staff. The only complaint I have was the fact that there was no air conditioning in the room. However, I quickly found out that this is common in Ireland.
