We booked at Ariel House for a 2 night mini vacation. We arrived very early as it was so close from the airport...literally a 10 minute walk from the Aircoach drops you off. We were shown to our room which certainly exceeded our expectations. A huge bed which was extremely comfortable and a separate bath and shower in the bathroom offered plenty of room. The service for breakfast was very good. The staff throughout were quite pleasant.

We have had a weekend at Ariel House every year since 2010. We don’t stay anywhere else in Dublin. We have been there in every season of the year. We especially like staying at Halloween and in December when the hotel is beautifully decorated. We have just had a summer break at the hotel. I felt very safe with the Covid measures taken. Breakfast, staff and service as excellent as ever. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work.

We have stayed here twice, the first time in a double room with my husband, we enjoyed it so much we brought the kids the next time and stayed in the family room. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and surprisingly quiet for Dublin. The staff are lovely, very warm and friendly, especially Natalie. The breakfast is really nice with such a choice. Ariel House has such a nice personal feel to it, much more homely than a large chain of hotels.

I myself get confused the odd time thinking a guesthouse is like a B&B. Definitely not this little gem in Ballsbridge. Back in Dublin to visit family and stayed here with my sister. It’s a hotel on a smaller scale with personal touches. From when I asked for more milk and got home baked biscuits too😊The house is immaculately clean, staff are possibly the most helpful I’ve come across in Dublin hotels without being overpowering. From the management ladies at reception, to the night porter to the cleaner. Well done on the Covid procedures, access to sanitiser everywhere, a mask was available when I asked and room was spotless. Truly a wonderful place in a stunning location.
