My fiancé and I were booked at The Schoolhouse after our original B&B had some issues and had to close- could not have been happier. Location right on the Grand Canal, short walk to Grafton and the most friendly staff. Breakfast was lovely (they do a wonderful full Irish) and the room was cozy and well-kept. All in all I...

I really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were very helpful and the rooms were spacious and clean as you would expect. I went with my then girlfriend for New Year and we had a lovely romantic walk around the hotel just on the outskirts of Dublin city centre.

This was our second stay at the Schoolhouse Hotel. It is so very charming and comfortable. A real bargain for the quality of accommodations. Would never go back to Dublin and not stay at the Schoolhouse. The rooms, staff, service, food and bar were most enjoyable!. The rooms are generous in size, nicely appointed - delightful! Charming is the best...

I am a member of an association and we recently had our Christmas drinks gathering in the Schoolhouse bar. The staff and manager couldn't have been more helpful with the organisation and helping out on the evening. The finger food provided was of a very high standard and the wine list is superb. One of the best things about the...

We had a lovely day in Dublin soaking up the Xmas atmosphere followed by a gig at the Bord Gais theatre that night. The Schoolhouse Hotel was the perfect venue for our stay. Just a few mins walk to the theatre and with free parking so close the city. The Hotel is small and inviting with the ambience you would...
