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

Delicious dinner in Scholars last night. Very strict Covid cert check at the door which made us feel very safe. Also tables are well spaced. Had a table in the bar area and we enjoyed a delicious sirloin steak, cooked to perfection. Great, friendly service too. Well done to all concerned.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Scholars, it is a fabulous hotel and the staff were lovely and helpful. We spent our first two nights in a very expensive hotel in Malahide and I have to say our stay in Scholars was much more comfortable. The breakfasts were lovely especially the smashed avocado. We will definitely be back.
