Myself and my husband (gay couple), had found Scholar's Hotel online as an optimal recommendation for small number weddings as our guest list was 30 people. We had enquired early on 6+ months before the wedding and Aisling their wedding co-ordinator was extremely efficient with providing us all the details and setting us up.

Once we had made all the confirmations, the period in between booking and the actual wedding date could have gone better. As there were both email, phone and in-person conversations there were some miscommunications which resulted in big impacts for us on the planning side of things and this was the only flaw I have to report in Scholars. At times we felt as if we were more of a burden and we also felt like we weren't getting the attention or support we deserved and often, we were just told that whatever topic was in question, wasn't the hotel's responsibility nor could they help us in that regard. That is one thing our other service providers were surprised at, the hotel could not help whatsoever with decorating, not even chair covers so we had to decorate the room at 7pm the night before, from favours, to table runners, centre pieces, the Mr&Mr at each cutlery set, the lights, petals, etc. We enjoyed doing it though however as we were able to do exactly what we wanted.

As the time approached, things became better via communication and by 4 weeks before hand we had two separate plans in case restrictions would impeed on the day which we must commend Aisling for ensuring a contingency plan in case the government did not increase the numbers at weddings.

Myself and my husband got married on the 11/11 in the Registry Office and we had guests from Portugal, the UK and all around Ireland who drove upto Drogheda to stay in Scholar's hotel.

As soon as we arrived on our special day, we certainly were made to feel like royalty. Our guests had their own private wing to have some bar food or drinks prior to the dinner while we had our photographs taken.

We were then announced by Eugene, an absolute gentleman and the dinner was outstanding. Due to COVID we did not get a taster but there was no need as everyone was complimenting the food for weeks after.

We had originally planned to go to their sister pub, Peggy Moores but when arrived we decided we would prefer to head back to the hotel as we much preferred their lounge to the roudy pub, which made it family friendly for the children in attendance.

All the guests got an amazing rate with breakfast included and we got the same but an extended stay for another three nights to rewind and relax as newlyweds.

Breakfast was outstanding just like dinner and all the guests were checked out flawlessley. We remained on and we got to know the staff very well Niamh, Aoife, Aisling, Eugene and everyone else made us feel at home. We were treated like princes and we were in true blissfulness for the remainder of our stay. We ate at the hotel for all our meals because the food was so nice and on the last day finished with Afternoon High Tea.

The hotel was so kind to keep our floral arrangements and cake in their refrigerators until we were ready to go home and they also ensured decor was kept as momentums when they cleaned up.

We had such an amazing time and thanks to the endless list of compliments we could give to Scholars, it would make us want to do it again!

I could not recommend Scholar's Hotel for intimate weddings and events and the sheer happiness of our guests and myself and my husband says it all.

Thank you so much guys for a once in a lifetime memory and for making it that extra special.

Stayed one night on business trip. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good Covid precautions. The food both dinner and breakfast very good. Good service on food and drinks. Only downside was the En Suite little small but I guess fitting it into the space available in an older building made it so. Don't get me wrong the whole place is in excellent condition and finish but it is a historic building and interesting Impressed with cleanliness and dealing with Covid

We were delighted to finish up our short staycation in Scholars Townhouse, and it seems we left the best until last. It was like going back to see old friends, and the warm and friendly greeting from all the staff was really nice. A very well stocked bar and a very impressive dining room. This visit was a delight from start to finish, and we hope to return soon. Definitely one of our favourites, and very Highly Recommended.

Charming hotel with lots of interesting things to look at. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The food at breakfast and dinner was really delicious and served in a lovely setting. A couple of housekeeping issues spotted on arrival in the room were dealt with promptly.

We booked this hotel as we were going to the Listoke gin school experience which was located a short drive away. From the moment we booked the staff were extremely helpful and kind. They ensured we had seating times we wanted both nights and also catered to all of our requirements. We had 2 amazing meals, once in the restaurant and the second in the gastro lounge. Both meals were incredible and the food was of such a high standard. We also had cocktails in the lounge, all delicious and the bar staff could not have been nicer! We stayed in the family room (3 adults) and had plenty of space for our luggage and to relax in the evenings. Would highly recommend to anyone who is staying in the locality or looking for an evening away!
