Excellent food with a wide variety of choices. The restaurant is beautifully laid out and decorated. All in all the hotel is stunning and classy, beautiful paintings in the walls and ceiling. The staff were extremely helpful and pandered to our every needs. Will defiantly be returning in the very near future.

We're regular visitors to Scholars and just love the place. Full of character with really professional & friendly staff. I'm a particular fan of the small but cozy bar where one could spend hours putting the feet up and forgetting about the outside world. It really is a gem in Drogheda.

I stayed here last weeken and after the initial and not unusual battle with the sat nav I arrived at the hotel at about 4pm. Initial thoughts were what have I booked here. On entering the hotel lobby you are hit with a chequered floor and a mix of colours and styles. The decor is old style to say the... More

This is our second stay at this historic place. A very antique place for art lovers. The story of this place is most amazing because it was a converted vacation get away from an academic origin. Also in this site, the great Holland was given a name in its outside wall. He was a legend for engineering speculated in submarines... More

We stayed in Scholar's Townhouse, a lovely old pile that used to belong to the Christian Brothers. It is worth visiting for the candle in the lobby alone. The rooms were comfortable, the bed was comfy (and very big!) the food was top notch for taste and presentation. You could say that the decor in general was "old school" ;-)... More
