Individual guest reviews

  • Good location for Dublin/ and also near the Aircoach bus stop in Ballsbridge. The best hotel i' and lovely Ariel House. The price was not bad either, especially given all that included and the staff in the morning were equally as professional.

    After a less than enthusiastic welcome, we embarked to our room, internet is slow for using.

  • Ideal location for shopping and just a few stops on the DART from town. Breakfasts are the best we have had in any hotel in ukor Ireland and the Ariel House is on a quiet street. Good restaurants are also nearby in Ballsbridge, the front desk staff is very friendly and helpful, the sitting room is big and lovely.

    Absolutely dreadful service and dirty, very warm in the bedrooms.

  • Comfy bed good location, short drive from Dublin port/ and stadium just down the street. Stuff are really very friendly and service is exceptional. Rooms are large and elegant, breakfast is fantastic.

    Car park is small and heated towel rail in the bathroom positively dangerous.

  • Beds comfortable and the location is perfect, this place really is genuinely charming. Ariel house is a beautiful Georgian guesthouse in Dublin 4, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the delicious breakfast and the nice cup of coffee.

    Our room was in the addition and was like a bad motel.

  • Good location near train station, not for this service and the region of Dublin was great, kindness of the staff all made for an excellent stay. Lucky for us, our first stop was the Ariel House, bed were fantastic and cooked breakfast was served hot from the kitchen. The food was some of the best i have tasted in Ireland, the concierge was a wonderful help in making our night special.

    Room noise late at night.
