Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hill B wrote a review 20 Nov
We spent 4 nights in this beautiful hotel. There are some signs of aging present in rooms, but it's clean, cozy and all premises of the hotel look classy and have undeniable historical Irish atmosphere, which was so uncommon and attractive for us. Especially we enjoyed stylish lounge and dining room. Personnel is very warm and helpful. Our room used to get very cold quickly when heating was off, probably because of bad insulation of windows (room of my parents didn't have this problem at all though). It wouldn't have been issue for us, if it weren't for our 7 months old kid. We were offered and electrical heater by front office workers right away and it worked just perfectly. Ariel house is perfectly located in nice and calm area with Dart station few steps away - you can reach city center literally in minutes. I'd definitely recommend this place for every visitor of Dublin. Tomas (CZE)

Had a quick stay here for a family graduation at Trinity. Great location, lovely room - we got an upgrade to junior suite which was fab---felt spoilt with space, size & comfort. Very efficient & helpful staff, A warm & welcoming space--- Car park spaces limited, but street parkign is available - not sure if there is a cost for that. Overall - highly recommend Ariel House, will be back as a Dublin stay.

What a little gem of a b&b, didn’t realise how close the dart was until we arrived! Aporox 2 mins walk away Definitely an added bonus. Clean & comfy rooms , lovely sitting room with tea /coffee facilities. Delicious breakfast. If you have the time whilst staying here catch the dart and go in the opposite direction and enjoy a couple of hrs at the seaside - we visited Bray, 30 mins in dart, relaxing chilled out trip walking along promenade. Breakfast is served 7-11 weekends & 7-10 weekdays, we were only informed of the weekend breakfast & on the Monday morning arrived for breakfast at 9.59 to be told breakfast was now finished, but on saying this , breakfast staff were very accommodating, we couldn’t order from menu but did bring us a pot of tea and some toast and we helped ourselves to cereal/ pastries Definitely recommend Ariel house for a b&b stay Excellent location also if you’re a rugby fan - Aviva stadium located next to dart station

The room and facilities were comfortable. The bathroom and toilet were a bit of a squeeze. The toile was close to the hot towel rail. Otherwise very welcoming. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Withing 2 minutes walk of the DART line, this wee hotel is ideally situated for a visit to Dublin. Dublin, itself, is horrendously expensive by Brisish standards but this hotel does offer reasonable value for money. Breakfasts were fine and the staff reasonably helpful. Free parking is a bonus in any city hotel thise days. We would use it again next time in Dublin.

This was just a one night stop for me to conclude my one week stay in Ireland. Very nice. Modern amenities in a classic setting. The neighborhood is quiet yet you are still close to the sites you will likely want to see in Dublin. Staff was very nice and helpful.

We returned to the Ariel House 13 years after our first visit. It was lovely then, and it is lovely today. In fact, it does not seem to have changed at all. We highly recommend the location, as Ballsbridge is a charming, convenient and quiet neighborhood. We hope that we don't wait another 13 years to return!

We spent three relaxed days at Ariel House. It was great to return to a clean and comfortable room after a long sightseeing day. We could relax and watch television in the lovely living room as if we were at home. The king bed was super comfortable and invited to a luxurious sleep. The view to the calm Lansdowne road was lovely. Very roomy bathroom with tub and shower. Delicious breakfast with lots of choices and additional menu choice in a lovely winter garden. Will return any time!
