I'm looking for a 3x3 mimo external antenna for an aruba ap224 that is wireless ac not just n.
But from what I can see on the compatibility guide the RP-SMA connectors only cover to wireless n.
Can anybody help me or point the way please.

Take a look at the Ordering Guide for the recommended antennas for the AP-224: http://www.arubanetworks.com/pdf/products/OG_AP-220.pdf. But to sum it up; there is no "ac" antenna vs. an "n" antenna for the 224.

That depends on the pattern you are looking for. If you are just mounting the AP225 on the ceiling, you can just use the AP225, instead of external antennas, because they work fine at even 30 feet above. Is there a specific scenario you are looking to deploy?

We have a new classroom building on campus that for various reasons was pre-cabled for wall mounted APs. We cannot move the cabling, so we need to use wall mounted APs.
On the upper floors (fac/staff offices) we are planning to use AP-114s with AP-ANT-1B antenna. For the actual classrooms, where density and bandwidth are more important, we plan to use AP-224s. Classroom sizes range from 30 seats to 350 seats. The target audience for these APs are the room in which they're installed so here I'd say range is probably less important.
