What a charming hotel--actually was a schoolhouse that our taxi driver attended! The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The rooms, named after famous Irish writers were beautifully decorated and comfortable. Location was near the train and an easy walk to downtown. Would definitely stay there again.

Location is fantastic, brisk 15 minute walk to city center. We also explored the adjacent neighbor and found some wonderful cafés. Very quite in an up class neighborhood of Classic Georgian town homes. Service was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was well worth the price and very convenient. The pub is also very convenient. So glad we chose this quaint... More

We loved our stay at the School house Hotel. The place was absolutely charming. The rooms were spacious and the service was outstanding. Free bottled water and coffee and newspaper delivery in the rooms with a lovely restaurant attached to the hotel. It is a bit of a walk to main Dublin attractions but it is a reasonable walk and...

The location of the hotel is good and quiet (although 10 minute walk to downtown is dreaming, more like 20 mins at a fast walk). Desk staff was fine, and issues with room fixed within a day. Room was dreary, however, and lightbulbs were dark and made it hard to read. Only a small window for air, and no A.C.... More

The Schoolhouse Hotel was recommended to me and I'm glad it was. It was walking distance to several museums and city center sites or a quick 5-min cab ride to those places. From the outside, it's a cute, churchy-looking schoolhouse with lots of charm. Stayed 2 nights in a clean, neatly-appointed room with two single beds, ample furnishings, bottles of... More

A nice surpruse! A little difficult to find the entrance street but overall worth the effort. The resaurant alone was worth staying there. Wonderful ambiance, food and service. The room was all it needed to be with a comfortable bed and nice view. Would definitely stay there again.

I liked it here, its a bit of a walk to the city centre, not too far, maybe 10mins or so.. enough to put a thirst on you, but nothing unbearable. If you decide to walk back and not get a few taxi you might even see a few foxes like we did. they're not as shy as you might... More

We had only a single night to stay in this charming and immaculate hotel in the quiet Ballsbridge section, close to the city's main attractions, and were delighted with our choice. Our room was perfectly outfitted to our needs, with a much-appreciated table and chairs, a very comfortable and thoughtfully, cozily dressed king-size bed, a lovely tea service bar, a... More

I stayed here 2 nights and I must say I fell in love as soon as I understood the story of the hotel. It was an actual school and the rooms are named after famous Irish people. I got to stay in Oscar Wilde and I loved it. It's a very cozy place, everything is clean and the decoration is... More
