April 2017- "Beautiful hotel, a perfect choice, couldn't be happier"
“Beautiful hotel, a perfect choice, couldn't be happier!”
I spent a long time choosing a hotel in Dublin and decided on the Schoolhouse because it was small and looked full of character. What an excellent choice it was! This hotel is lovely in every way. The location is great, away from the busy areas, yet only a 15 minute walk to Temple Bar and other major attractions. Our room was large and comfortable with a huge bed. Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice. We ate in the restaurant and in the bar; the food was delicious. We caught the aircoach from Dublin Airport which very conveniently drops you at the hotel and picks up across the road from the hotel on your return. A brilliant hotel, beautifully renovated, I would highly recommend it
March 2017- Fabalous
 Very good location; just 15 minutes' walk from Grafton Street. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and great food in the bar/bistro area
March 2017 - Great location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms with history attached
This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the city. The staff are very helpful and the bedrooms are quirky in that they each have a history lesson for you. They are also comfortable and spacious. The bar and restaurant attached are convenient with a great buzz. Breakfast was really good too. I will definitely stay here again
February 2017 - Fantastic
Fantastic gem of a hotel with a gorgeous cosy bar area and fab Irish music, lovely atmosphere yet very quiet at night which was great. Caught air coach on way back to airport stops right outside hotel which was great and a lot cheaper than a cab”
February 2017 
Really nice, cosy, charming hotel. Also, well located. The breakfast was great, one should definitely book the rooms with it included! We loved that there was not only a Restaurant but also a really cool Pub next door!”
February 2017 - Will Come Again
This is our second time staying. We returned as we had such a good first experience. Our second stay was equally good. Customer service is top class from the person at reception to the bar staff and restaurant staff. All made you feel welcome. They must enjoy working there because they looked happy and that was reflected in the way we were treated. What we enjoyed about the room was the king size bed, a luxury. The hotel is old wordly so I dont expect everything to be perfect so will not be nit picking. Location is excellent with only a 15 minute walk to Grafton St and 10 minute walk to Ballsbridge so very central for rugby (Aviva), concerts (RDS), shows (Bord Gais Theatre) and shopping (city centre). The main ingredients were there and so we left feeling relaxed and wanting to come back again which we hope to do soon!
February 2017 - Gorgeous Hotel
Well what can I say, this hotel is just superb, the rooms, the food, I just cannot fault it at all. We had dinner in the bar & it was superb, I can only imagine what the actual restaurant food is like if the bar food is that good. The rooms where spotless & not your typical hotel room, which I love, the bed was unbelievably comfortable & that coming from me is the highest compliment as I usually find it very difficult to sleep when I go away, but not this time. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel & i will definitely be back. Thank you to all at the SchoolHouse for a fabulous stay!!

14th September 2016 - Essexposhtart - 'School Days'
A lovely Hotel in a lovely location right by the Canal. Nice quiet area about 10-15 minutes walk from the City Centre. Hotel is very clean in the rooms and the public areas. Nice breakfast although how its priced on the menu leaves one a little confused!! The staff are very efficient and friendly and nothing appears too much trouble. Apart from breakfast we ate in the Hotel twice. Lunch the first day of our arrival and dinner on our last evening. Both superb and plenty of it. All in all a very nice Hotel. 
12th September 2016 - Maura - A Really 1st Class Function'
I attended a 60th birthday function which included pre drinks and a sit down 3 course dinner at this restaurant/hotel. It was excellent in every way. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. It was so professional catered for and the service was great. I would very much recommend this restaurant. 
12th September 2016 - WWeatherly - 'First Night in Ireland
We arrived in early afternoon for our stay at the Schoolhouse Hotel. The parking was easily found and quite large. Careful when entering the parking area as the entrance is narrow, especially if you are new to driving in a right-hand rental care. The accommodations were excellent with a warm feel to them. The restaurant was very nice, could have been a chapel at the school at one time. We ate dinner and breakfast there and the food was perfect. a bar was located next to the restaurant and it was well appointed with a very nice crowd that frequented there. The hotel has air conditioning which I found out in my travels around Ireland isn't always available. I would have loved to have stayed longer at the Schoolhouse but we had plans to circumnavigate the lower portion of Ireland. We reluctantly departed the Schoolhouse but will be back again! We would highly recommend this hotel.

8th September 2016 - Liz Bennett - 'Splendid Spot'
We were drawn to the Schoolhouse Hotel by the look of its charm, and its location (close in to City Center, but tucked in off the Canal). From the moment we arrived, Rory at the front desk was wonderful! So helpful initially and throughout our stay with useful information, charm and wit. Highly recommend this spot. Food excellent. We travel once/year to Ireland, and this will be our new Dublin spot. (One minor nitpick: the "ironing" appliance is really awkward to use - feels like it's leftover from the 1950's.)

August 2016 - Very Boutiquey Hotel - ' TICoachTodd
It was indeed a former schoolhouse. Very quaint and lovely. Close to town center and places to eat. Very quiet, rooms are spacious. Food in the pub is excellent! Many taps as well. Breakfast was very good. Excellent continental spread as well as menu'd hot items as well.
