The School House hotel was perfect! Therese and Guiliana were so friendly and always provided extra service with a smile and genuine interest in our plans or concerns. Our rooms were on the second floor in the back and were large, beautifully decorated and very quiet. Maid service was quick and efficient. There were always more cookies and extra towels!... More

This was the first place we stayed after arriving in Dublin from the US. Since we landed early in the morning after an overnight flight, we arrived at the hotel a few hours before normal check in. The staff at the hotel, probably noticing how tired we all looked, was able to get our room ready for us to check... More

I've stayed here a few times and beyond the usual location marketing; touching distance to city, beside the canal lock, near public transport, stadia etc, this place has an element of style to it. It's compact, it's bijou, it's a late 1990's renovated 19th century schoolhouse. Passed it in dilapidated days going to work and now it's been home to... More

First night of a reunion in Dublin and Wicklow, and a very good hotel too. All round good quality. Enjoyed the stay and the service was top notch. We would definitely choose this hotel again. Nice walks along the canal and easy access to Dublin City centre.

The Schoolhouse Hotel, Ballsbridge is a gorgeous building brimming with original old world features which proved to be the perfect choice and backdrop for our small intimate family wedding celebration. Our guests were charmed by the beauty and grace of the stunning wedding room as well as the lovely garden atmosphere and picturesque canal surroundings. Therese and her staff know... More

i chose this hotel because I Understood it to be a unique setting and close to the city center. I found this hotel to be a disappointment. The room that I had was small and dark. There was no air circulation, although when I mentioned the issue at checkout I was informed that there was a fan for circulating air... More

We stayed at The Schoolhouse Hotel for a total of four nights. The rooms were very quiet, clean, large and comfortable and the breakfasts were good. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the main attractions in Dublin which not only made it very convenient, but because it was not... More

An exceptionally comfortable room and bed, very spacious, well decorated. Dinner was beautiful, continental breakfast excellent. The dining room, and old classroom, is very atmospheric. Would certainly return

Not a good experience. Fire alarm went of three times during the night. Was going to complain but heard another couple complaining but we're told there was nothing the hotel staff could do. No apology or sympathy for fee passing guests who had not had a complete nights sleep.The receptionist then appeared to hold a telephone to her ear to... More

Great situation as within easy walks to Georgian Dublin and the main thoroughfares. Friendly and efficient staff. The great asset is the bar housed in a lofty former schoolroom. This attracts many local people due to the setting, as well as the food and drink. Top marks for replenishing the ice bucket every day and providing a fridge in our... More
