Me and my friend stayed at the Schoolhouse for two nights a couple of weeks before Christmas. We had a pleasant stay in a good sized twin room which was nicely decorated and clean. We had breakfast included and could order from the menu as well as from the continental buffet, something I would recommend if you value your breakfast....

This is the fourth time we have stayed at the schoolhouse and we are never let down - friendly staff at the restaurant and bar make the stay so relaxing. Convenience / Location great with a short walk into the shops and close to a great track by the canal for running. We walked to the Guinness factory and also...

I travelled here with my husband and mum for a four day trip to Dublin at the beginning of December. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The Schoolhouse is a lovely, comfortable, individual hotel. We asked for quiet rooms and had rooms away from the road which were very quiet but, to be honest, I think all the rooms would be quiet...

My boyfriend and I visited The Schoolhouse after seeing reviews online and decided it would be the perfect base for a trip to Dublin - we certainly weren't wrong! We arrived close to midnight on our first day, but despite this we got a really friendly welcome which set the tone for the whole of our 3 night stay. The...

I attended an after work business meetup in the schoolhouse bar. There was a great atmosphere there but still seats available. The service was a little laid back but friendly. There is a decent choice of Bar food as sleekly as an adjoining Resturant. Even though there was a good crowd in you could have a conversation without shouting. A...

I've long since wanted to stay here and finally did, for 2 nights this weekend. I will never use any other Dublin hotel again. It is fabulous. From the location, to the building, the bar & restaurant, the comfortable room and the staff. We had lunch in the bar the day we arrived and an exquisite rib of beef on...

Back at the Schoolhouse hotel. Same friendly welcome. I was allocated the same room I had last time and couldn't have wished for better. Big, comfortable bed with decent pillows, table and chairs, writing desk, TV with a good range of channels, nice Tea/Coffee making facilities, hairdryer that works and air-con/heating that I could work.

What a little gem. This hotel encourages a relaxed feeling with it's quaint atmosphere. The bedrooms have an aged feeling about them but are impeccable in comfort and appearance. We stayed for one night as a gift and although we didn't get to try the restaurant, the food in the bar would have been hard to beat. Breakfast the next...
