Lovely little hotel

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Small. Atmospheric decoration in keeping with age of building but not too twee.
Cons: Perfect as is.
Location: Beautiful part of city. Far enough away from very centre to be peaceful but close enough to enable you to get anywhere fast. Great location.
Lovely welcoming little hotel. Bar with open fires - perfect for a winters evening or early morning coffee.

One night in Dublin

Posted Feb 19, 2015
Pros: Its not a bog standard large chain hotel, it is unique.
Cons: Nothing springs to mind
Location: Can't really add much on this as i was only there for one night, arrived late went early for meetings in the offices across from the hotel.
Needed a hotel close to what I percieve to be the financial district of Dublin. It fits the bill. It is an old School House, the pictures on Expedia do it justice. The restaurant was closed for a private function when I stayed but the full menu was available in the large bar. The bar itself is excellent and I believe is frequented by non-residents on a regular basis so it is a 'great craic' or 'just grand, so it is' as they say locally. All in all a thouroughly pleasing experience.

Warm welcome to Dublin

Posted Jan 24, 2015
This was our second visit to the Schoolhouse. The location is perfect - within walking distance of the city centre yet situated in a residential area. During our one week stay we had a few meals in the bar and one dinner in the restaurant. The food was delicious and plentiful (I loved the fish and chips). The cooked breakfast was excellent. The rooms are well appointed and warm- important in January. Our only concern was a bad smell outside the elevator, gas or plumbing problems but the staff seemed aware of this and are addressing the problem.

writer's dream in dublin

Posted Nov 28, 2014
discovered the Schoolhouse via the web and it was better than described - wonderful friendly and helpful staff, delightful room with canopy bed and a great Fall view out the window, excellent food, and a short walk to Merrion Park. each room is titled for a famous author such as Oscar Wilde or James Joyce and we went around checking to see whose names rated memorializing. the history of St Stephen's school was quite interesting as well.

Wonderful stay!

Posted Oct 17, 2014
Excellent staff. Beautiful character property. Very clean and comfortable room. We would definitely stay here again. It was a bit far from city centre, but we like to walk so not a problem. We knew about the distance in advance.
