We want to Dublin to watch the England rugby match at The Aviva Stadium, and we were so lucky to have found such a fabulous B&B. The accommodation is excellent, and the location not just for the rugby but for visiting the city is ideal. The staff were super friendly, and Jennie who runs it is an absolute asset. She's...

We stayed for 5 nights earlier this month. Every staff member was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing - both a cold buffet and hot meals made to order in an attractive dining room with lots of light. Conveniently located steps away from a DART station and bus stops. Would definitely stay here again!

Our family traveled to Dublin in March 2017 for vacation. Ariel House far exceeded our expectations! First, it was in a very nice, upscale area. We arrived quite early, were greeted warmly, given coffee and treats and able to get into our room very early. The room was a family suite--very spacious clean and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and...

We stayed in the James Joyce room with a four poster bed and the best mattress I've ever had in any hotel, really comfortable. The staff are very friendly, there is complimentary tea and coffee and nibbles in the drawing room. The breakfast is the best I've come across by far, beautifully presented and great variety. Great location, great place...

Warm welcome, but then huge disappointment. Our tiny expensive room was under the main building stairs. Very small bed (1,20m for 2 adult). The heating did not work in the bathroom, no way to dry you in there, too cold. They install another heater in the bathroom for the night. Could not close anymore the bathroom door, From freezing the...

What a lovely place in every way. Just loved it - excellent in every aspect but the staff are outstanding. Everyone I met gave superb service. Clearly well trained, but more than that - a genuine, friendly, caring approach. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely. Thanks to you all for making my Dublin stay extra special.
