Genealogical research showed that I am 20% Irish and for my first trip to Ireland Schoolhouse Hotel fit like a welcome home glove. Staff, pub, food were marvelous and our rooms were warm and quite comfortable.

I decided to book our stay at this hotel over other ones because of its charm and history. Although most of the staff is very helpful, the hotel itself is showing its age. Walls are paper thin and we were kept awake all night by the neighbour that was banging around the night before we had a full day of...

Loved this place - a refreshing change from the corporate experience most hotels offer. Our room was full of character, generously sized and immaculately clean. Everyone was very welcoming and the walk into the city centre perfectly do-able.

We choose the Schoolhouse on a recommendations of Rick Steve's review of Dublin. We were not disappointed. Large rooms, with a spacious bathroom were a pleasant change from the smaller rooms we had been experiencing at B&Bs. The location requires about a 15 minute walk to Trinity College and other sites throughout the city. However, the neighborhood is safe, close...

This hotel has a lot to offer visitors to Dublin--comfortable accommodations, quiet setting, good food, and a staff that does everything to make their guests feel at home. The bar associated with the hotel is lively and fun, too. We liked the historic Georgian neighborhood that the Schoolhouse is set in and enjoyed the walk to the city center.
