Win an overnight city stay at Ariel House in Dublin

The Irish Times have teamed up with Ariel House, one of Dublin’s finest Guesthouses, to give one subscriber the chance to win an overnight stay.

Ariel House, proudly part of The iNUA Collection, is set in the leafy Dublin suburb of Ballsbridge and recently unveiled a stylish new look. The design team, led by interior designer Adrian McCarthy, updated 14 guestrooms and the entire ground floor including the reception area, drawing room and conservatory.

The lucky winner will enjoy a two night stay in this peaceful neighbourhood with an award-winning breakfast each morning, cooked by the excellent Chef Rose. A must for all guests at Ariel House, Rose brings her own family recipes to the kitchen with guests enjoying homemade granola, banana bread and potato cakes along with freshly baked bread and pastries using the finest artisan suppliers, such as Pat O’Neill for bacon and Kilmurray handmade jams.

Take a seat in the bright and airy drawing room, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee, afternoon tea, relax with a book or simply practice the gentle art of lingering. In line with their sustainability initiatives, each guestroom now has water cartons and dispensable Rituals products in the bathrooms.

Ariel House is where sophistication and layers of historical charm meet modern grace to create a luxurious sense of home in leafy Ballsbridge.
