What a unique Hotel, a former School converted to Hotel rooms. Our room was both spacious and comfortable although a little in need of refurbishment, bath was badly stained and the woodwork in need of attention. Bed and sleep experience was first class, clean and fresh sheets, king size bed plus tea and coffee. Internet was fast and free parking...

Dear Spithead, Thank you for reviewing your stay here at The Schoolhouse Hotel. It is great to hear that you had a 'first class' nights sleep. We are working on the woodwork in all rooms and are hoping to be finished by early 2017. I hope to see you again, Kind Regards, Rory Doyle

This hotel is very charming and original! Located a bit far away from city center though (30' by walking but still doable), the neighborhood is very quiet, rooms are spacious, very good shower and very charming. We loved the decoration kind of old school. Staff was also very nice and you have access to a parking. We had the room...

I'm late writing my review. We stayed here twice this year and had an excellent experience both times! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! The first time was for a golf trip throughout the country. We flew into and out of Dublin - the folks at the schoolhouse stored our golf club cases for an entire week before we...

We LOVED the Schoolhouse Hotel! We spent 8 days there on our honeymoon and could not have asked for a nicer place to stay! We also became "family" with the staff and were treated as such every single day! It was a cozy, authentic place to relax, enjoy great food, and have an awesome drink (the bar was outstanding). We...

It not always you feel you stayed in the best place you could basically choose. An old schoolhouse turned hotel which makes you feel part fantasy, part luxury, and completely comfortable because someone has done their design details. A not to miss place.

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and quiet with a big comfortable bed. The staff were helpful and consistently friendly.

This was our 3rd stay in the Schoolhouse for the Dublin Marathon. It's location means it is the perfect base to travel to the Expo, start line and back from the finish.
