This is a perfect example why I rely on this site for hotel recommendations. I couldn't find any mention of Scholar's (as the locals call it) in the traditional guidebooks, but booked a room for two nights based on the TripAdvisor reviews, which proved to be very accurate. This is a traditional and more elegant option for those who aren't attracted to the glitz and flash of the d Hotel. The rooms are comfortable and very clean.

The food is excellent, as others have noted, if somewhat expensive. Unfortunately, the bar menu isn't that different from the restaurant, so light snacks are limited. Service was also inconsistent. Overall, however, we were pleased with our stay and were impressed to find such a hotel in a relatively small place like Drogheda.

As soon as we arrived I was impressed straight away. The building itself is beautiful and the surroundings are fantastic and it is close to town centre too which was great. I cant compliment this place enough, the decor inside is fabulous. We went to our room and it was very nice, clean and comfortable. We also booked into the restaurant that night and the food and service was fantastic. This is a hidden gem and although it is quite small it is well worth it.!
I will go back.!

This was definitely one of our best stops in Ireland. Beautiful rooms - good food - warm and pleasant atmosphere. Would go back in a flash. Very quiet.

The hotel was perfect in many ways. It was within walking distance to downtown Drogheda, it had spacious rooms and the service was excellent. I couldn't tell the difference between the employees and the owners, as they were all so helpful. All the services were great from the breakfast service in the morning to the end of the night pint in the quiet bar. The size of the hotel was about 20 rooms so it was very comfortable and quiet. I would recommend it as "the place to stay in Drogheda".
