Maybe we were missing the wow factor, but we weren't overly impressed with the hotel. Theres nothing wrong with it, just personal taste. The overall effect is very dark, and we were in room 115 , a four poster bed that took up the room completely. It was ridiculously warm. There were only 2 small windows that you could pull... More

Dined here a few weeks ago, lovely food, lovely staff. A busy Sunday but managed to fit us in, staff were so attentive even with the amount of customers they were dealing with. Food was well presented and we were served promptly. Will definitely be returning here.

If you are looking for a standard, "cookie cutter" type hotel, stop reading now. Scholars is not for you. But if want a place with some charm this is worth a look. Stayed there on a family trip and everyone was very pleased with our stay. All the rooms are different layouts and sizes so where you are placed makes... More

My wife booked us into the hotel as a present for my birthday. The hotel is a converted school, and is full of old world charm. our room as we expected was very small, the tv was tiny and located high on the shelf in the wardrobe. I am sure there must be some sort of wall bracket available to... More

It's hard to give such a nice place an average rating, but some parts were excellent and another part of our experience was way less than satisfactory. We were looking forward to this location and hoped that it would give us a jump on the Newgrange crowds the next day (it did). The access was a little hidden away in... More

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.
