I recently stayed overnight in Scholars Townhouse with my mother and aunties and we were duly impressed. From the moment we walked in the entrance it felt like we were transported back in time. The staff immediately greeted us with great warmth and friendliness. The personal touch and attention to detail was felt throughout our stay. Finally,the central location was... More

My wife brought me to Scholars for an overnight stay and dinner for my birthday. The staff were very friendly and suggested we had dinner in the bar as we were the only ones booked into the restaurant that early in the evening. We had a lovely dinner in the bar. The staff were very attentive, in particular the barman... More

This wonderfully run establishment is a great escape from chain hotels. The staff greets you with the famous Irish warmth. The food is excellent, the rooms are small, but spotless. It is an easy walk to town center.

The atmosphere and the decor are close and comforting. It has a period house feel and has many nooks, crannies and private dining rooms scattered across the ground floor. The rooms reflect the period( mid 19th century) as well while our room was particularly spacious with a four poster( some are quite tight but reflect the fascinating story of the... More

This beautiful stately, homely building is the essence of comfort, grandeur and a totally enjoyable experience. Staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, eager to please in all aspects from the fine dining right through to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the bar.

This is the third time staying at Scholars. We keep coming back because the hotel is impeccably clean, great value, excellent food with helpful, friendly staff. We chose Drogheda for our stay to be close to Newgrange and Knowth. Our room was large with a four poster bed, very quiet and comfortable. The hotel itself is well located for an... More

Good location for visiting Trim Castle as well as Knowth & Newgrange. Nice facility with grand main level but rooms are just OK. Good hearty breakfast and menu selection. Nice bathroom and shower. Quite close to town and easy walk.

Just returned from a one night stay in this hotel. Got a great deal for dinner, bed and breakfast for two people- €119 for two. Dinner is normally €35 euro per person so room and breakfast cost less than €50 for two. Hotel is on two floors with bar and restaurant on ground floor and 16 bedrooms on first floor.... More
