Fantastic accommodation, great staff, wonderful host and food to die for. We highly recommend the hotel as a must stay, quite location, free parking and the most beautiful decor. Ver, very clean. This hotel will be remembered and recommend and recommended when we return to Australia.

Stunning hotel near the centre of Drogheda, a lovely location to explore the historic region. The hotel is stunning, a real feast for the senses in terms of antiques, paintings and general feel. It's like stepping back in time. The staff are very helpful and efficient. The place feels less like a hotel and more like a guesthouse. The bar... More

This is the 6th time I have stayed at the Scholar's, so it can't be all that bad! It's true that the rooms are a bit limited for space, the TV minuscule with poor reception, the decor a bit worn and gloomy but it's great for a few days visit. The food is another thing altogether. No surprise it has... More

This is a little gem. Place is beautiful. Staff are excellent. Food is as good as any I have had out. Rooms are small but the rest of the experience more than makes up for it. Will come again just because we enjoyed it so much. It's location means that you can walk to everything.

We stayed here last week, myself, my Dad and my Girlfriend. We have family a little further North. This hotel was delightful from start to finish, excellent traditional decor, fantastic service and a very good overall experience. Next time we're in Drogheda, we'll be staying again. Highly recommended.

The rooms are small but comfortable and the setting is unique. The restaurant is reasonably priced, the atmosphere quiet and friendly and the food is good. It is near to downtown and transportation to wherever one would wish to go is a phone call away. The people at the front desk do a great job of assisting the tourist.

This is a restaurant review people... Some locals will tell you that their parents once attended school there, so there is plenty of history to begin with... This old school converted into a hotel, bar and restaurant offers a great location, a service to match and lovely food. It was our local weekly eat-out place before changing houses but we're...
