We were very happy with our stay. The staff were very accommodating. The location is in the best part of town and close to everything by foot. Room was good but the outstanding feature was the breakfast which was five star.

We only stayed at Ariel House for one night - which is a shame because it was great! From the moment we walked in we were warmly welcomed by the staff there and shown to an enormous room with four poster bed (junior suite). The room was really comfortable and well-presented, and one slight problem was dealt with really quickly. There is a lovely drawing room with a constant supply of tea, coffee and freshly baked goods available throughout the day.

Perhaps the greatest attribute of this establishment is the breakfast. It would be wrong not to go for the full Irish breakfast which comes with black pudding, white pudding, potato cake and wonderful soda bread. There is a good selection of cereal, baked goods, fruits etc also.

Overall, we were delighted with Ariel House & would recommend without reservation.

Stayed here for one night. We were visiting the embassy and its the perfect location as it a couple minutes walk away. Right beside Aviva stadium and the dart. Great location great rates. Loved this place. Rooms are spotless, breakfast was excellent and staff are lovely especially Cecilia, she's so helpful and friendly. Lovely bar (Slatterys)just a couple minutes walk and also some restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend this place

Can’t rave enough about Ariel House. First, prior to our visit, we emailed a number of times about changes we required aa well as inquiries about the best way to get to hotel from airport (AirCoach €8.5). They promptly and pleasantly responded which we appreciated. When our adult daughter chose to join us for a few days, they changed our room without an additional charge.

This speaks to the service here which is superb. The reception is so pleasant and welcoming. After a long travel day we arrived early morning to drop our bags. After apologizing for the room not being reading ( at 8:00 am?!) they invited us to have breakfast on them ( a 2 x €15 value). Wow. The breakfast is worth staying here alone. Fresh baked goodies are amazing. Warm scones, pane au chocolate, and toasted multi grain bread are all wonderful.

Start on the buffet with baked goods, cheeses, juices, granola yoghurt and more. Choice of one starter (I loved the fruit parfait) and one main. I tried them all; eggs with smoked salmon, pancakes, beautiful brioche French toast and an Irish Full Breakfast. So good and so filing.

Again here the staff are very good and accommodating.

They have a modest afternoon tea consisting of tea, coffee and lemonade with a little bit of white cake or cookies. Nice if you are around but not worth coming back to the hotel specifically for it.

We are walkers, so we did not mind walking 25 minutes to get to the action (40 minutes to Temple Bar) but the hotel is just 3 minutes from the Landsdowne DART station which connects you to all the modes of Dublin’s excellent transit options (buses, street cars, rail).

Don’t want to forget that the beds were very comfy and the rooms ( and area) very quiet.

We loved this choice, and so will you.

I stayed in Ariel House on the 13th July as was attending Paul Simon concert in the RDS. I was overwhelmed by the standard of this accommodation.It is a true Gem in the hospitality sector. The breakfast was five star, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was mega comfortable. I loved the lounge with complimentary tea/ coffee/scones/daily papers and chill out time.Pure relaxation on tap.I have recommended this Guesthouse to my friends and will certainly return.
