Ariel House; Dublin can be heaven….

“For Dublin can be heaven with coffee at eleven and a stroll in Stephen’s Green….”

Spring is definitely in the air and with it has brought brighter evenings and a new vigour around Dublin. We find in the darker months guests are asking us where they can find a nice restaurant or pub with an open fire but when brighter days come along people love to wander around Dublin and sightsee on foot. Dublin has so much to offer to those who want an active holiday and what better way to work off the calories from pints of Guinness, freshly buttered soda bread and thick rashers of bacon than a stroll around!


We have been recommending several different walks to our guests and are more than happy to print out maps at reception for anyone who needs them.

Here are some of our suggestions;

This walk is 5.5 km long and takes in many interesting locations around Dublin such as the Old Jameson Distillery.

This walk is just under 5 km and runs along the river Dodder.

This walk takes in the beauty of Howth Head on the north side of Dublin. It is just over 6km and is steep in parts.

This is a great article which features five walks around Dublin that are suitable for children.

The Great South Wall Walk is a walk that will take your breath away. You will feel like you are standing in the middle of Dublin Bay. Wonderful views sweeping from Howth Head to Bray Head and everything in between.

We love hearing from guests where they have spent their day and always have a warm cup of tea or coffee awaiting their arrival back to Ariel House and of course not forgetting a home baked treat.

Till the next time, happy walking!
