Brought as a treat so was unaware of prices before trip. Was treated so well by all staff that I expected it was high priced, was amazed to find out it was very reasonably priced. The food was michelin star quality, providing unexpected amuse bouche and pallet cleanser. Staff were so friendly and accomodating I would definately go again.

On a previous visit to Drogheda we had a memorable dinner in the restaurant so we booked the hotel for the first night of our tour of Ireland. We were not disappointed having been given a spacious room with a four poster bed. However the couple we were holidaying with were given a room they described as a cupboard which... More

We had a lovely stay in this hotel on 7th September2014. Really lovely atmosphere,friendly, helpful staff,and good food. The bedroom we were given was a bit disappointing and we asked if it was possible to have a different one.This was sorted immediately, and we were delighted. Everything about this hotel would make us want to return sometime again.Should also say... More

I like this place - half close your eyes and you could have flashed back a 100 years. Interesting hallways, stairs, lounge and the room are small - the 'scholars' presumably didn't have much in the way of possessions anyway. We had to squeeze around the bed but loved the character. Meal was excellent as was breakfast. First choice for... More

First visited Scholars 3 years ago from UK, after being recommended to go there's whilst sipping my first pint of Giuness- at McHughes bar 200m away! We couldn't believe it. The food was outstanding especially the seafood chowder. So good that we returned last year when it was just as good! And so this year we went again-and this time... More

Really very happy with both the ambience and food. Interesting menu and not over priced. All in all very reasonable and certainly ranks as one of my top picks in Drogheda. There is a touch of class in Scholars blended with friendliness that works a treat. Highly recommended and we will visit again soon.

We arrived in Ireland via Dublin airport around noon on a Friday morning. After picking up our rental car we headed off to Drogheda and the Scholars Inn. What a magnificent place. Sixteen rooms, a great lounge/pub and a very fine dining room with the ceilings decorated with scenes from the Battle of the Boyne. After a walk around Drogheda... More

The 30 minute drive on the opposide ride of the road was perfect after our 9 hour flight from San Francisco....Great way to start our holiday, with my son and his friend from university, in Ireland. Close to the Dublin airport. Beautiful quaint town with the history and ambience of a smaller Irish town. The Scholar's Townhouse staff was warm... More

Its an interesting building with a definite "wow" factor. The staff were very willing to please. Our room was tiny, with the most uncomfortable bed I've slept in for years. Hard mattress, too-thick hard foam pillows and awkwardly made up sheet + blanket combo made it a pleasure to leave.

Scholars was absolutely brilliant! The service and the hospitality was fantastic. This was our 3rd time at the hotel and it hasn't disappointed! The staff are very friendly and professional and the food was superb as usual and the outside garden was very well looked after by the lovely gardeners! we will definitely be back soon.
