Is there a better breakfast than the Ariel House breakfast? We don’t think so. When you talk about benchmark standards off sourcing, cooking and serving an Irish breakfast, then Ariel is going to be at the very top of your list.
But then, ask yourself if there is a better afternoon tea than the tea served by Deirdre McDonald and her team? We don’t think so. Ms McDonald and her staff take care of every detail, beginning with the correct cup from which to drink your tea. It is that attention to detail, that sympathy, which explains why Ariel is one of the very best places to stay in Dublin. But we must also add that Ariel, it seems to us, is a house that keeps getting better and better. The team here are restless and self-critical, and never, ever rest on their laurels, though they have garnered so many laurels over the years that they could stuff a furniture store of duvets.
Deirdre and her team also know all the best places to eat in the vicinity of the house, so they literally take care of you from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. Ariel House is, quite simply, an outstanding destination, and one of the great delights of dear old Dublin.
