We've stayed in the Schoolhouse many times, but for some reason I've never gotten round to reviewing it. It's beside the canal, in a lovely leafy setting. It's a haven of tranquility in a busy city. Great bar, great restaurant, free in room movies and bottled water, comfortable beds and it's only a 10 minute walk to grafton street. The... More

Had an amazing stay here!! The staff was so friendly, and everything was great!! We arrived super early, and they sat us at breakfast and gave us our room almost eight hours before check in! We would stay here again without hesitation.

My wife and I stayed here for a wedding. The room was fine. The people in the dining room were great. During the meal service everything was pretty much spot on. Could not fault them. Where this hotel fell down was in the BAR. After the wedding meal we moved to the bar. I was waiting 15 minutes to get... More

Many thanks for your recent review. I am happy to hear that you were happy to with you accommodation and indeed our restaurant and wedding service. I was disappointed and a little shocked to hear of your experience in the bar as it is not at all reflective of other the feedback we generally receive. Could I ask that you... More

During a long weekend stay just before St. Paddy's day, the Schoolhouse hotel served as a great home-base in Dublin. The Schoolhouse Hotel is convienently located right across the canal in a quiet neighborhood on the east side of Dublin just a 10-15 minute walk to the city center. From the hotel, we walked clear out to Kilmainham Gaol (about... More

We enjoyed our stay in this pleasant, quiet hotel. The staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful. Our room was large and pleasantly furnished in arts and craft style, with nice complimentary amenities. The bed was huge and very comfortable. It was great also to have free WiFi and free parking. The Schoolhouse has quirky charm in its architecture and furnishings.... More

I stayed for five nights at the Schoolhouse and found a number of things to like about it. First, the staff are great - very warm and helpful and always with a pleasant word. When I had a question about the airport bus, Louise walked me outside to point out where to wait. Rooms are quite comfortable, with a nice... More

This is a little gem of a hotel. The staff are friendly and attentive. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are enormous and the dinners are high class and delicious. The location is in a nice district of the city, about a half hour stroll to Grafton St (past all the interesting "art on the railings") I... More
