On a 10 day tour of Ireland, I needed accommodations in this small town. Not finding very many to choose from, I settled on Scholars Townhouse Hotel. It proved to be a good decision. The building is the former living quarters for students attending the old parochial college next door. It is warm and classy, in a traditional sense. Beautiful... More

Had a lovely stay as part of a small wedding party. The food and service were very good. The bar was well stocked with fine whiskeys and had a very relaxed atmosphere. It is a lovely hotel, will definitely return

The hotel is ideal if you are doing the Boyne, Newgrange tourists attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was small and slightly pokey but adequate. The great plus of this hotel is the restaurant where the food is superb and it has a fine and varied wine list.

We stayed for a night at Scholars recently. This is a lovely, small, intimate historic hotel, which was once an old Christian Brothers school. John Phillip Holland attended the school. His claim to fame was being the Irish engineer who invented the submarine. The rooms are old school, on the small side, so phone and ask for a larger room.... More

My first visit to Ireland. Could not have picked a better location or friendlier Hotel. The rooms are not over large but well equipped , in keeping with this old , but beautiful building. Food excellent. We had very hot weather for our 3 day stay, so we went to the coast, 10 mins from the Hotel. Miles of sandy... More

Rooms and bathroom are small but high quality with Victorian décor/charm. Full breakfast was included as was wifi and free off-street parking. No air-conditioning and the room could use a fan to move air around. In room tea. Breakfast was good and served in their fine dining restaurant. We also chose to have dinner here on the 3-course price fixe... More
