Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Stayed here June 2010 on the main floor. It seemed like there was constantly someone walking around above us, so if I were to stay here again, I'd ask for a top floor room.
The breakfast was really good and in a charming, bright breakfast room.
Staff was hit and miss - some were warm and friendly, others had better things to do.
Location was ok - it took us about 20 minutes power walking to make it to Grafton st area. But nice to be in quiet residential area.

Room Tip: I'd choose a top floor room because you can really hear people walking above you

Ariel House had very personal staff who were determined you would enjoy your stay. They had their customers service to the forefront of their minds. The rooms were small but comfortable. I did notice that, like another customer mentioned, that a ground floor exit door was open. I believe it is to air the hallways but I couldn't say if it was accessible from the main road, which made me a little uncomfortable. They recommend and booked our restaurant which was very good-they got us a table at short notice also which was wonderful. Homemade biscuits, cake & coffee in the communal area was an appreciated touch-esp when you arrive back at 11pm. They couldn't be closer to the Lansdowne Rd (you get off that stop of the dart, go left away from the stadium and its on your right). Its a 5 min walk to the RDS also-handy for the horse show. Breakfast was nice-you can order what you want for €11 so go for it!

Room Tip: I'd ask for a room on 1st/2nd floor. They'd be a bit brighter, but not an issue either way.

My husband took me away to Dublin for the Valentines weekend and we stayed at the Ariel Guest House. The place was conveniently located, right next to the DART station and 2 stops away from Tara Station which took us to Temple Bar and all the sights in the city and a short walk from the Airc Coach stop which took us to and from the airport. The rooms were well decorated and spacious and the staff were very friendly! We had their famous breakfast on both days and it was absolutely delicious as was their complementary fresh cakes and biscuits that they set out for all guests. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this guest house and would definitely stay there again.

From start to finish we were treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble for any one member of the fantastic team at aerial house. The breakfast was amazing, Irish food at its best, homemade and filling! We stayed in a family room, which was not only huge but had a beautiful bay window letting in lots of natural light.. Will definitely be Visiting again!!

Stayed here after reading other reviews. Excellent location and very comfortable and safe environment. Less than a minute on foot to train station. Secure parking at house. Staff at reception (day and night) could not be more helpful and accomodating. A really outstanding place to stay at a very reasonable price. Would definitely return.
