Nice, small hotel with limited parking (can't prebook the parking, it's pot luck and quite tight on space!) located about 10 mins walk from Trinity and Grafton Street etc. The booking in procedure was a bit abrupt, but the hotel generally was tidy and well organised. My room was a bit 'tired' with some peeling paint in the bathroom, and...

We stayed at the Schoolhouse Hotel and from the minute we entered the hotel had a great experience. Hotel is really lovely. Rooms are nice, breakfast lovely and the bar area is a lovely place to relax in. Staff were great too. Will definitely stay there again.

Starting off a couple of years ago we had a great dining experience at The Schoolhouse Hotel. Even back then I looked around and thought the dining room would make a lovely wedding venue. Back to the relative present (February) and we were shortlisting venues for our wedding celebration. We had a few options on the list and the first...

On first appearences it appears nicely decorated but on closer examination our room was looking a little tired - especially the bathroom. Having said that - it was most comfortable and what we needed. It...

Stayed here for 3 nights as I was in Dublin to run the marathon. Had 2 rooms as was with my parents and my boyfriend. We all thought it was a great place to stay. Central, quirky and great facilities. The staff really went above and beyond to look after us. Would recommend this as a great place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Schoolhouse Hotel in late October 2014 and were very pleased with the staff, hotel room, breakfast, pub, and location. A charming boutique hotel in a great location within easy walking distance of the main downtown activities. Next to the canal so great for running, biking and walking. We enjoyed the breakfast as well...

This Hotel is simply fantastic! I have stayed there on numerous occasions and it excels every time. Their personal touch & attention to detail is always a fantastic trait at this hotel. Their breakfast is lovely too, one of the nicest breakfasts around with great choices including Pancakes - a personal favorite of mine. I would definitely return to this...

Just stayed at Schoolhouse Hotel for 2 days.

Upon arrival, gave one word answers to my questions and was clearly not interested in helping us . Completely flat/cold affect. On...
