Simply excellent facilities and all that one needs for a weekend in Dublin whether shopping , sightseeing or watching Ireland at the Aviva stadium. Great atmosphere and very helpful staff. Breakfasts are excellent as are the bar menu for lunch and evening meal. Air Coach drops off outside and airport buses run every hour on the hour.Walking distance to the... More

Building with own soul and character. Bit away from city center and docks, but still within walking distance. Room was rather large and very clean! Nice pub in hotel was popular among local and pretty lively. So if You like to have beer or two it´s good option.

The previous night we stayed at a large hotel in the centre of Dublin, so the small cosy atmosphere at the Schoolhouse was refreshing. The rooms are of a good size and decorated in a period style.

We had a group of us of about 60 for a private dinner. The staff were excellent and stayed on after the coffee had been served to see if there were any more requests. A choice of hake or chicken and both wet very good. Brownies (could have been nicer) or rhubarb dessert. Two asked for fruit and were pleasantly... More

The Schoolhouse is an old property but very well located in the embassy precinct within walking distance of Dublin's main commercial centre. Great place from which to start our daily excursions to the golf courses. Rooms are all named after Irish poets and writers and whilst old, are quite comfortable - lack of cupboard space was a bit of a... More

Stayed for 1 night on business. You certainly get the schoolhouse feel and effect. Was given a downstairs room which was grudgingly changed as it was too dim with little light (i have bad eyes). Bathroom was quite cosy but the shower made up for it. My only gripe with the rooms was that the beds are 2 twins pushed... More
