Jenny McKeown and her team in Ariel House have a simple ambition when it comes to the guests who stay in this elegant Ballsbridge house: they want every single person to have the best experience, the most unforgettable experience, the defining experience, of what hospitality can be. And they succeed, because everyone in the team is always looking to do more for the guests, from the moment you arrive at Ariel, until the moment you leave. The experience of care and hospitality in Ariel is genuinely unforgettable, as unforgettable as the breakfasts and afternoon teas which Rose and the kitchen team prepare every day. The buffet cabinet alone is so bounteous that it could satisfy any breakfast cravings, but the precision of the cooked breakfasts just has to be seen to be believed: every single plate is picture-postcard pretty, and Instagram-ready, and every single detail of every plate is cooked and plated with artistic exactitude. It’s the best possible start to the day, and when you return in the aftrenoon and sit down for afternoon tea, there is yet another treat in store. Ariel House is simply as good as it gets.
