Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. Very nice area with local bars and restaurants and could walk to the city centre. Hotel full of character and rooms clean and comfortable. We had the ground floor rooms with a door that opened into the courtyard, as there was 3 couples staying in 3 adjoining rooms it worked out very well. The... More

What a lovely old world type of hotel! By old world I mean it had a real homely feel to it. The staff were friendly and very personable and the welcome was warm and genuine, not like some of the bigger high turnover hotels to be found in cities these days. We stayed for 3 nights on the 1st, 2nd... More

This is a beautiful hotel with real character. The restaurant and bar have a fantastic high pitched ceiling and amazing architecture. The bedrooms were excellent and beautifully designed. The staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. I cannot say enough good about our experience at this hotel

Lovely hotel, friendly staff and excellent service. Quaint rooms with comfy beds. Breakfast was very good. Would recommend the Schoolhouse hotel and hope to stay there again on future trips to Dublin.

The Schoolhouse Hotel offers boutique-style luxury, with a "home away from home feel". It is located in Ballsbridge, which is just outside the city centre in Dublin 4, but is easily accessible to the heart of Dublin by the Luas (tram service) and car. The hotel is small but provides a personal service to guests, with little touches like an... More

The location is great, walking distance from the city center, but in a nice and quite road with trees. The hotel (used to be a victorian school) is amazing. Everything seems to be stucked in the victorian age. Rooms are large and very clean. There is a good breakfast service but the real thing I enjoyed much was the bar... More

Stayed here only 1 night, but enjoyed the whole day around here. Would have easily stayed longer. You have to love the easy parking at these smaller hotels. Staff ensured us an early check-in, and rooms were nice, cozy and warm. The history and architecture of the hotel, restaurant and bar added to the experience. Great Irish breakfast and menu... More

You can catch the Aircoach from Dublin airport to the front door of the Schoolhouse Hotel which is very handy indeed. It is a very doable 15 minute walk into Grafton Street and Trinity College. The hotel is very comfortable with good sized rooms and tasteful decor. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar is popular and a great... More
