“A well needed rest ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Thank you for such a lovely stay. The room was amazingly comfortable and so tastefully decorated. We met three different reception staff during our stay and all were welcoming and accommodating.

One of the highlights was the shower ... it was like standing under a waterfall - pure luxury.

The schoolhouse offered everything anyone could ask for in luxury and comfort.

I didn't avail of breakfast as I knew we would be having a long lie in but we had lunch in the bar and it was lovely and the staff were friendly and attentive.

Thanks you so much.

Lovely hotel right on the edge of the city center. We found all city sights within walking distance to this quiet and cozy hotel. The thing that really makes this place is the staff. They are friendly, personable, and always willing to help with anything and everything. My only complaint is that there is not an in room safe. We were told by reception that any valuables could be left in the hotel safe, but we did not take them up on this offer.

First trip to Dublin and this was a great spot for an introduction. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Convenient transportation or a good walk to downtown. Pub & restaurant were great. Food was delicious! We would definitely stay here again. We stayed in Dublin in July 2012

Went for a family breakfast here. Stood waiting for staff to serve (even though no other customers in the place). Ordered cappuchino that tasted like dish water. Croissants were microwave heated & greasy. Toilets were grubby. wont be returning!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the night we spent at the Schoolhouse Hotel in Dublin. We were only there one night, but it was great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant had great breakfast and the location was very convenient. The beds were so comfy and when we go back, we would totally stay here again.

Wonderful hotel, cozy & comfortable & clean. We ate several meals in the bar & restaurant, food was very good. All of the staff were exceptionally helpful & friendly. It's within easy walking distance to all the great things to see in Dublin. We will stay here again on our next trip to Dublin

The schoolhouse hotel is located near Dublin's museums, but is a mile or so from the other tourist attractions in Dublin. We enjoy walking and felt safe walking to and from the hotel both early in the morning or late in the evenings. The hotel is charming and makes the most of its history and unique architecture. Each room is named for a person important in Irish history and has a portrait and information in the room. Rooms were comfortable, but a bit cramped for two. The sitting area is great, but space between beds and furniture made bathroom access a bit hard. It was fun to get a bit of education along with the lodging, though. Care taken is decorating was appreciated. The lobby is extremely small, but welcoming and has a public computer ( fee for printing) WiFi is available throughout the hotel and was speedy. The restaurant had a more than adequate hot breakfast. I believe inclusion of breakfast is dependent on what type of booking made. We did eat dinner here one night and the meal was not memorable. Both entrees were overcooked and on the dry side. But, after a long day of sightseeing we were just happy to have food on the premises.
