It was my second trip to Ireland. The hotel had typical charm of that country. Easy & friendly people with kind heart and beautiful neighbor. It's bit far from downtown, that's way I didn't rate 10. Room was clean. Breakfast room was very charming. Service was great too. I'm sure that I'll stay this hotel again next time I'm in Dublin.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Ariel House Hotel

ll like it too

from GraemeTheGuitarMan
My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous 4 days in Dublin. We stayed at the Ariel House Hotel which is located in the lovely suburb of Ballsbridge - a pleasant 30 minute walk from the centre of the City. If you don't want to walk, taxis and buses are nearby. There are a number of cafes, restaurants and pubs all within a few minutes walk from the Hotel.

All the staff were very friendly, courteous and professional. Our room was spacious and in immaculate condition. We enjoyed breakfast every morning in the Hotel's dining room, overlooking the rear gardens. My particular favourite was the french toast, bacon and maple syrup. What a combination! The Ariel House platter is also worthy of mention. Add to this the delicious home made jams and toast, quality teas and coffee and what more could you want to start your day.

All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay and I have no hesitation in recommending the Hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

Enjoyable, Would do it Again!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Friendly, hospitable, knowledeable staff......very helpful with everything especially planning what to see and do, generous! Good size, well decorated rooms! Felt very welcome!

Would definitely stay there again!

Not too bad...

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here in May 2005 for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We were given a room in the main house but at the back which was ok. Plenty of space but you just felt like the place could do with a bit of a re vamp.

Had a bath that was supposed to have bubbles, but it didn't seem to work, also the shower was very difficult to turn on. Breakfast was ok, bigger portions could have improved it. It was funny watching Americans dissecting a black and a white pudding! They were horrified when we told them what it actually was!

The price was reasonable and the City Centre was close by on the train. Piece of advice though, the DART trains don't run at weekends, so you could be in for a long walk!

Can reccomend the Jurys hotel at the end of Lansdowne Road for eating though, had a fab meal in what was supposed to be their coffee shop, not too expensive and very friendly.

Felt quite sorry for this property, it has obviously been very grand once, just needs someone to love it again. :-)

I was stuck in Dublin for a week, having intended to stay for only 2 nights. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, including driving me to a stationary shop for supplies (I was a bit pregnant at the time!). The guesthouse could do with a bit of TLC and my room wasn't great but it's in a good location, great rates and customer service was excellent. I've read some of the other reviews and perhaps our American cousins don't understand the difference between a guesthouse and a hotelalthough this should have been obvious from the rates.

very pleasant stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel from 22 February to 26 February 2005. We had a very nice room and the staff could not have been more helpful even booking a table at a nearby restaurant for us. There was a good choice in the breakfast menu and again the staff in the restaurant were very attentive. We will certainly be staying at this hotel again.

– and a good value!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was more than satisfied with this charming guest-house, which feels more like a B&B than a hotel. The room I stayed in, situated in the main house, was large and simply furnished with used furniture. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, and the neighbourhood was lovely. I think that the people who have complaints about this place had the misfortune to be put in one of the rooms in the back ground-floor addition, which looked pretty damp and grungy. I was told by one of the staff that they only put people back there in a fully-booked situation – usually when there is a concert or match at nearbye Lansdowne stadium. As long as I could ensure that I would be put in the main house, I would definitely stay here again.

Solid Place to stay - would recommend it

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was booked in here by a vendor, after asking for a nice place that would allow me easy access to the city. This hotel fulfilled all those expectations - a pleasant B&B - nice grounds, solid facilities (a bit dated, but if you want modern, go stay in a Four Seasons for 3-4 times the price), a courteous and helpful staff, and a good breakfast. Rates were very affordable. It was easy to walk 3 blocks for a nice pub meal and a pint, or catch the nearby train into City Centre (or walk the 20 min) to access the heart of downtown. I'd repeat here in a minute..

Enjoyed the hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed two days in Dublin at Ariel House. If you are looking for good rooms on a quiet street, friendly, helpful staff, good access to DART, we would recommend staying at Ariel House.

Not brilliant but OK

from ForestTim
We booked 5 months early and got a good room. Breakfast was excellent and the service was always efficient and polite. The hotel was clean and only 15 mins taxi ride from the city centre. Not the best '4 star' hotel I've stayed in (!) but certainly OK for the money. The only problem with our stay was moaning Americans, but you get that everywhere don't you?

t rate 4 stars

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were bitterly disappointed in this hotel, we were expecting a lovely 4 star hotel, unfortunately instead we received a musty, damp and dirty room where the curtains were hanging off the rails, the wallpaper was peeling off the walls and in the bathroom was unclean.

Not what we expected to find by the level of advertising on their website.

Most definitely would not recommend this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

sightseeing Start early and don't stop! Many sites close at 5 pm and tours often stop earlier than that. If you want to take a side trip to Newgrange, make reservations well in advance. We were not able to see the tomb because tours were sold out (to tour companies, it appeared).

Dart around The Dart was a fast and effecient way to get around, not to mention a great bang for your buck. It also provides a fun elevated view of the city. Of course walking is the best way to take it the city and all it has to offer.

DART, music tour If at all possible, ride the Dart and don't mess with the bus. This will save you time. We bought the bus pass, spend a lot of time hunting buses and bus stops, but on our 2nd day discoved Dart and took off with it! It even goes down to some seaside villages (which we learned the hard way close up at night!). Also, we found a freat musical pub tour which showed us Irish music and which pubs to go to for moe listening. Great fun!
