I love staying in hotels like the this one. Quirky, unusual, and breaking the cookie cutter mold of traditional hotel chains. The room was well appointed and comfortable, the staff were all extremely friendly, and perhaps the best part was the attached bar/patio/restaurant area. The bar seems to be a popular gathering spot for the locals, making it a refreshing... More

We were in Dublin as part of a golfing trip and stayed at the Schoolhouse Hotel because we were playing two courses in that area before moving south. It is conveniently located and does have parking, which I was advised was not common. Dring in and around Dublin is not easy, as traffic during the week is difficult. And, while... More

The staff were incredibly friendly and did everything to make the occasion a tremendous success. The food and service was way above what we expected. I cannot say how great the facility lends itself to such an event. Bernadette & John.

It's a quirky building in that it's not a standard corporate city hotel, but the rooms and service are better than what you find in such establishments. So comfy, that bed. And the rooms are literary themed, well stocked, and sweetly appointed. The bathroom was clean, the shower spectacular. The staff was really helpful and professional. It was the kind... More

EXCELLENT - have travelled extensively and very often disappointed. Not so with the Schoolhouse - absolutely loved every minute. The staff, the bed, the attention to detail and the location. Best breakfast for a long time. Certainly re-booking for our return

This little gem was great for us! Schoolhouse has wonderful character and if you love learning and reading you will love the them of the rooms. The service was wonderful and everyone was gracious. However, we travel often and make it a point not to settle for a place to eat. We decided to try the connected restaurant - that... More

Booked by an agent through exploring vacations. Not disappointed. Twenty minute walk to the core of Dublin, far enough away from the core to be quiet, peaceful. Breakfast was superb with large portions that kept us going all day. Rooms were big and well decorated , we had a king sized bed. Trace at main reception couldn't do enough for... More

Post trip hotel for a VBT bike tour, okay for one night, but too far from the sights in Dublin for 5 nights that we reserved. Dinner service and meal quality on 1st night was tentative and adequate, not the excellence that we expected after its recommendation in Rick Steves' book. Room was small (1st floor, below ground) and dark... More

From the outside i was a bit worried about what we booked. Once inside and met by the friendly staff that all changed. They were always there and helpful. The room was perfect. It was clean, with a large bed and plenty of room. The hotel bar is also a hidden gem with great food and a killer atmosphere.
