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 evening ice bucket service to rooms. The rooms are decorated to a nice standard with enormous beds and are spacious.
The hotel has a lovely bar area adjoining the main hotel, which also serves hot drinks and brunch-style food, plus delicious home-cooked main meals and desserts. The standard of the food is exceptional, with hand-prepared dishes of a very good size. You are not disappointed with the food, particularly as the portions are more than ample with a variety of dishes to offer, including seafood, duck and delicious pies.
I have stayed at this Hotel now about four times, and each time have to say the staff are polite and very keen to please. A truly exquisite venue in probably the nicest part of Dublin!!!
