Outstanding Service, Long Lasting Memories
Generous servings of hospitality and service are two key ingredients of the Ariel House recipe. From the welcome at check in, through to the goodbyes when leaving, we strive to make our guests feel comfortable and well looked after throughout their stay at our Dublin 4 guesthouse.
And as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. In 2022, McKenna’s Guides recommended our guesthouse in Dublin as one of the top 100 places to stay in Ireland and in 2021, Ariel House was awarded Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award.
THE HISTORY OF ARIEL HOUSE
If you look closely, you’ll realise that Ariel House is not in fact just one building, but is made up of three splendid Victorian townhouses, seamlessly joined and charmingly laid out. Our role is to keep them alive, vibrant, cared for and open for all to enjoy.
The main house was built back in 1850, during the reign of Queen Victoria, and was originally owned by a wealthy shipping merchant and his family. To this day, you can still see many Victorian features on display throughout our Dublin guesthouse, such as the beautiful bay windows, Flemish brick work, ornate stained glass and sash windows.
Nowadays Ariel House has been sympathetically restored, offering modern amenities, but keeping the style and elegance of a time gone by.

“The room was amazing, we had been upgraded to the junior suite. Complete with four poster bed, beautiful views of Dublin and extremely large bathroom. Possibly the nicest room I’ve ever stayed in.”
