We had a three night break for our 10th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed with the Schoolhouse.
On arrival reception were expecting us and the check in process was extremely slick.
The hotel has only 31 rooms so retains an intimate feeling at all times, but particularly at breakfast.
Our room was a good size, with a overly large bed and everything you would expect for a hotel of this rating. The bathroom at first appeared a little dated in some respects e.g. shower fittings, but this is intentional and it all functions perfectly.
Housekeeping visited once a day and the room was kept immaculately, with in room refreshments (tea, coffee, water, ice and biscuits) replaced daily.
Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of choices that would suit all tastes, and with very flexible hours. We ate in the restaurant once and the food was good, though the prices were those you'd expect to pay for something a little more special.
The bar was very popular with locals and residents alike with a friendly atmosphere and bar food available.
Location wise this hotel is fairly good with a 10-15 minute stroll into the city centre, and having the river Liffy nearby as well.
Although by no means the cheapest option we felt the hotel was worth the extra, and would recommend taking a few moments to read the history of the building itself.
