We stayed at Schoolhouse Hotel at the very end of September/first of October. It was a beautiful location, just close enough to the Dublin sites, but just far enough out of the fray. The rooms were clean and comfortable, decorated with a boutique touch of style. The service was pleasant and efficient. I would stay here again and highly recommend...

We visited here a few weeks ago. The building itself is very attractive and only a few mins away from Grand Canal Dock and Ballsbridge areas. It's only a few mins stroll to the Patrick Kavanagh commemoration by the canal. It's perfect for a few quiet friends, if you want to show off a new place to drink and it's...

I booked the Schoolhouse based on reviews and after speaking to the staff. I was lead to believe it was a short 5-10 minute walk to the areas of action. It is a good 20 minute walk. Not a deal breaker and not a long walk, but it is 20 minutes each way. In this limited time I preferred something...

We arrived at Dublin airport and took the 30 minute ride in an Aircoach bus (8 Euro/person) to the Schoolhouse Hotel. The Schoolhouse Hotel is conveniently located as the 3rd stop on the Aircoach Greystones Route #702 (they stop at the hotel). The property originally built as a school house in the 1860's has been transformed into a quaint hotel....

Schoolhouse was our first stop during a recent trip to Ireland. From beginning to end, the Schoolhouse staff was welcoming, supportive and accommodating. The hotel location allowed easy access to downtown. The pub was outstanding. We will use this hotel again and again when visiting Dublin.

What a charming hotel--actually was a schoolhouse that our taxi driver attended! The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The rooms, named after famous Irish writers were beautifully decorated and comfortable. Location was near the train and an easy walk to downtown. Would definitely stay there again.

Location is fantastic, brisk 15 minute walk to city center. We also explored the adjacent neighbor and found some wonderful cafés. Very quite in an up class neighborhood of Classic Georgian town homes. Service was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was well worth the price and very convenient. The pub is also very convenient. So glad we chose this quaint...

We loved our stay at the School house Hotel. The place was absolutely charming. The rooms were spacious and the service was outstanding. Free bottled water and coffee and newspaper delivery in the rooms with a lovely restaurant attached to the hotel. It is a bit of a walk to main Dublin attractions but it is a reasonable walk and...
