Nice hotel, friendly staff. Rooms were a little small. Ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Good burgers and fish and chips. Shared the Irish breakfast and pancakes/both were good. -went down to the restaurant in the morning and they gave us coffee to take to the room before we came down for breakfast. Took a cab to Kilmainham Gaol,... More

Just returned from three nights at the Schoolhouse. We knew what to expect as two different friends had recommended the hotel!. Easy access from the airport is always important and the Schoolhouse couldn't be better place as an Air Coach stops outside. Check in was quick and efficient. They were right about the staff. They were good and friendly too.... More

Booked rooms at the Schoolhouse for our last night in Ireland during Christmas week. This property from start to finish is just down right charming. There is a picturesque canal located directly across the street. You're a quick 15 minute walk to St. Stephen's Green and Grafton Street. The rooms are homey decorated with with sturdy oak mission style furniture.... More

We had two rooms for one overnight stay in early January. The hotel was very quiet as it was a Sunday night at the end of the Christmas/New Year holidays. Rooms are very nicely decorated - not the usual bland furniture found in most hotel chains. We had a meal in the hotel lounge which was excellent as was breakfast... More

Had to visit Dublin for a night on business and was advised by a client to try the Schoolhouse. I know the location and was happy to give it a try. It was great value (eur 99 incl breakfast) - the room was big, the bed large, firm and very comfortable. Bit of an issue with the air con (too... More

My fiancé and I were booked at The Schoolhouse after our original B&B had some issues and had to close- could not have been happier. Location right on the Grand Canal, short walk to Grafton and the most friendly staff. Breakfast was lovely (they do a wonderful full Irish) and the room was cozy and well-kept. All in all I... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were very helpful and the rooms were spacious and clean as you would expect. I went with my then girlfriend for New Year and we had a lovely romantic walk around the hotel just on the outskirts of Dublin city centre.

This was our second stay at the Schoolhouse Hotel. It is so very charming and comfortable. A real bargain for the quality of accommodations. Would never go back to Dublin and not stay at the Schoolhouse. The rooms, staff, service, food and bar were most enjoyable!. The rooms are generous in size, nicely appointed - delightful! Charming is the best... More

I don't know why I had always dismissed this place in the past when looking for accommodation in Dublin, so on this ocassion when someone else booked it I was a bit disappointed. I shouldn't have been - it's a delightful place to stay; the room was very comfortable with an enormous bed, on-site parking was perfect, the staff were... More
