This is a very nice hotel. I loved the unique and quaint decor. The rooms were big, comfortable and clean. It was also very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was lovely as well. I would stay here again.

I spent a long time choosing a hotel in Dublin and decided on the Schoolhouse because it was small and looked full of character. What an excellent choice it was! This hotel is lovely in every way. The location is great, away from the busy areas, yet only a 15 minute walk to Temple Bar and other major attractions. Our...

We booked this hotel expecting a quality boutique hotel to celebrate a weekend in Dublin to celebrate my 50th birthday. Sadly our expectations were not met. The room was adequate but cold with only a plug in /mobile radiator as heating, a wheel missing off the diva bed base and wadded with paper as a replacement and a bathroom with...

spent a few n nights at the Schoolhouse while working in Dublin. The restaurant and bar are excellent, great atmosphere, excellent fare and excellent service. The room, whilst comfortable - is definitely showing its age and perhaps in terms of accommodation, the place could benefit from a makeover!

Double bed was so obviously two singles zipped together which was a shame. Only thing i disliked was the bits in the bath when i filled it. Once i was sure it was coming from the...
