Our favourite lodging in Ballsbridge is this wonderful Victorian-era property that is somewhere between a boutique hotel and a luxury B&B. Its 28 rooms are all individually decorated with period furniture, which lends the place an air of genuine luxury. A far better choice than most hotels.
Located next to the Aviva Stadium, in the leafy suburbs of Dublin’s Ballsbridge district, this beautiful Victorian house offers stylish bedrooms and a sumptuous breakfast menu. Rooms at the Ariel House Hotel combine 19th-century furniture with modern comforts including free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. The bathrooms feature a bath and invigorating power shower. The Dining Room serves traditional and continental breakfasts, which feature homemade chutneys, banana bread and scones. Afternoon tea can be taken in the elegant Drawing Room. The RDS and Herbert Park are both just a 5-minute walk from the Ariel. The Lansdowne Road DART and Train Station are both less than 500 metres from the hotel. Friendly staff can provide transport information and sightseeing recommendations. Ariel House has a 24-hour front desk and provides limited free parking for guests.
On site parking is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
