The rooms are what you'd expect in an older bed and breakfast but we went into it knowing what we would encounter. While the rooms are dated (understandably so,) the room size is very spacious. The hotel itself is also located just minutes away from a train station. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with any questions we brought...

The hotel is good for accessing the Aviva stadium. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Breakfasts are of a good standard. The lounge is lovely - tea and coffee with small cakes available during the day. The furniture in rooms is "period", some could do with maintenance. We were told that our room was a Garden Room. As I walked down...

It was Beautiful, lovely, and accommodating! The beds were comfortable, the staff very helpful. The breakfast room and food were awesome. Will think of them when my husband reminisce about out time in Dublin. They prepared us little breakfast baggies to bring along on our day tour because we were leaving before breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights in room 222 of this nice hotel. It turns out that this is the George Bernard Shaw room! This is one of those hotels in a quaint, older building. There is a small yard/garden area in the front of the hotel that makes it very friendly and homey. Although the parking lot is small, parking is...

Where to begin? Ariel House is beautiful and in a wonderful location in the lovely Ballsbridge area of Dublin - far from the madding crowds of downtown - but very accessible to everything. This is the Embassy District. Lots of smart young professional-looking commuters dashing about as well as families with baby strollers and happy dogs with their walkers. The...

What an enjoyable B&B. The people are so warm and friendly at Ariel House. It is like we have known them for years. Fabulous hospitality! The rooms and bathrooms are large, clean and roomy. The afternoon tea, coffee and treats are an added bonus. It is about a block from the rail that goes into the city center. The professional...

The Ariel House is a delightful Inn/B&B made up of three 19th C townhouses connected into a single Inn. It is located very near the Aviva (Rugby) stadium with easy access to the local light rail transit system and within easy walking distance of several very good restaurants. Speaking of food, I must mention the included breakfast--you have several choices...
