Stayed here overnight last night. We were able to check in early and our room was fantastic! As we were over for the rugby it was the ideal place as its only a short walk to the Aviva. Pleasant and helpful staff and even though it was busy they managed to squeeze us into the restaurant for dinner which was... More

Stayed here out of season for a few nights, and cannot fault the hotel, room or the service. Checked in with ease, dinner in the restaurant was brilliant and the service was friendly and attentive. The bar was busy and full of atmosphere. The bar menu has more choice and is just as tasty. Will definitely be returning next time... More

Upon arrival we were checked in very quickly, the Hotel is quirky but very tastefully decorated, we were given a double room with 2 single beds no big deal but the very helpful man on reception later on got us an amazing room with a huge double bed without even being asked. This was a taste of what was to... More

My daughter found Schoolhouse on a leisurely walk during her college abroad program, and at her request-we booked for the end of December! The rooms are warmly appointed, and each is dedicated to a historical Irish figure. The Full Irish Breakfast at the Schoolhouse is hearty with lots of choices. We had a nightcap at the bar one evening and... More

Stayed in the school house hotel on 09/01/16. Rooms were clean, dinner was delicious (we had the €20 theatre deal- for 3 courses) The choice at breakfast was a bit disappointing in comparison to the rest of the stay, but was tasty however. Not the usual hotel. Lovely if you'd like a change of scenery.

Room was large with very large american King Size bed- Very comfortable. parking was easy. Had soup and sandwich for lunch in the bar which was very good food and in a great atmosphere. Room service sandiwches late at night were excellent. Would recommend even tho a very short cab ride from Grafton Street or nice walk.

We stayed here for two nights over the New Year. Loved the hotel. Rooms are quirky and have great character. Its an old building so dont expect glass walls and modern decor. The hotel is done exactly they way it should to respect the history of the hotel. Staff are excellent. We couldn't get a taxi and the taxi company... More

This place had the potential to be really charming, but it was mostly disappointing. The room was musty and the bed was uncomfortable. No breakfast was available. Location is decent in relation to sites and shopping.

We enjoyed our stay here in this quaint hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was able to answer all of our questions about the area. On the morning of our departure we were able to simply cross the street to catch the bus headed to the airport.
