County Cork, Ireland9 contributions9 helpful votes
Stayed with my husband for two nights, bar staff and food were excellent, staff extremely friendly and attentive especially manager Tom runs a good team. Breakfast service on the first morning was extremely slow 50 for porridge fruit salad and two full Irish both which were cold, I would have informed our waitress but waited for over ten minutes and she didn’t appear. Spoke to the manager that night and he assured me the next days service would be better and it was but there is still room for improvement. This is a four star hotel with beautiful decor and in a really good location outdoor area is beautiful. The breakfast service could definitely be improved, items on the menu but when I asked for them I was informed they didn’t have any left we had breakfast at 9.30 seems a bit early to be running out of items.

helena C Many thanks for taking the time to review us. Once again, thank you for your honest feedback about your experience during breakfast. I am delighted to learn you experience was much better the next morning and I hope you will chalk the first morning up to a little bit of rustiness as we get back in the flow of having guests through our doors again. I do hope the next time you are visiting Dublin, the team and I will have the pleasure of welcoming you back here to the Schoolhouse. Kind regards, Tom Isherwood General Manager

have stayed at this hotel twice over the last 6 months - great experience. Super central location, great comfort, food (evening meal and breakfast is great), and if you would like a pint, that is pretty good too.

The dinner we had was so reasonably priced and so delicious. The staff were extremely attentive especially Leo the bartender who made us delightful cocktails throughout our night! We will definitely be back and was so warm sitting outside just felt like a normal dinner night out!

My work colleagues and I were trying to celebrate an upcoming covid style wedding, it can be hard in these times to remember fun. Gina made us feel so welcome and safe. We had such a wonderful time we didn't even notice the time limit. We were able to give our friend's single years a proper send off. We would happily come here again if restrictions allow, the food is unbelievable worth paying the 9 euro minimum for a drink.
