It's true that the Schoolhouse Hotel is a charming, quiet, small hotel that is a convenient 10-minute walk to Dublin center, but also extremely important is that the Aircoach bus to Dublin airport stops RIGHT IN FRONT. No calling a taxi, no worrying about whether it will arrive in time or how much it will cost--just book your bus reservation... More

The rooms were very comfortable and the hotel was a really unique and cool experience. The hotel staff... More

It was great to have the parking... More

This is a hotel that grows on you. ´We had a bad trip in from the airport. Drugies falling in front of the taxi, beggers everywhere in the town centre. Then we got to the hotel. Shower is antique - 5 - 7 turns to get hot water, etc. But it was close to town (20 min Grafton street &... More
