I held my wife’s birthday dinner in Scholars. After lockdown it was so great to get out. The hotel had built a temporary structure beside the hotel to facilitate outdoor dining. We had eaten here before and the food was as god as before, probably even better. The staff went out I go their way to give us a great night. I would highly recommend Scholars for a lovely night away with fabulous food and a warm welcome. Will be back again.

I stayed here for 1 night with my family. From start to finish the experience was one to be remembered. The owners should be very proud and the staff are amazing. The food was as good as anywhere and the surroundings are beautiful.

Me and my partner originally from Drogheda decided to spend night here as it looks like the best quality out of all hotels in the town. Lady on check in was lovely and it was quick and easy no standing around. I booked room 161 with four poster bed which was the comfiest bed I have slept in IN AGES!!! Didn’t want to leave this morning if I could of paid for later check out I would of. Room was big and spacious lovely modern bathroom and also quite warm for a while. Staff didn’t mind us running in and out for smokes really late at night. This hotel has a very homey feeling which is great. Only thing I have to complain about it the noise of children coming from the school beside it but the hotel itself cannot help that. I would recommend if you want a lie in in the morning with

For any family thinking of visiting the “Garden Room” restaurant with children better think twice....We attempted to make a reservation for a family of 6 this evening (2 adults, 1 adult child and 3 younger children) for a 5.30 sitting, the guy on the phone who was quite polite informed me that their policy was a minimum €40 per head spend even for the children. I asked him to check with management which he did and they confirmed what he said. While I did receive a prompt reply from the MD by email offering an earlier in the day time slot and made excuses due to Covid restrictions even though most people are quite aware of the generous SME government assistance, wage supports, tax deferrals etc available at present.
