    Individual guest reviews

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The staff were extremely helpful. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of choice from the buffet and a very good "irish cooked breakfast" served to our table.

      The room was very comfortable, the only minor drawback was that it was in the basement therefore was below ground level and had no view. The room itself was well apponited and very clean. It took much longer than advised to reach the centre of Dublin- 30 minutes.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Very pleasant staff.

      Shower in middle of tub and curtain blows in on you. Another shelf in bathroom would have been helpful.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Comfortable room, nice decor, great location to get on and off the airport coach.

      Rooms were cold (no heating), shower was weird.

    • Older travelers

      Outstanding service from staff at all levels. Great bar menu from the restaurant with reasonable pricing. Air Coach bus service to and from airport stops at the hotel. Nicely decorated facility.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      The location was ideal for us as it was in a quiet, peaceful beautiful area of Dublin. The staff were extremely courteous, helpful and friendly as were all of the people that we met in Dublin. We had one breakfast and an evening meal in the restaurant and the food was superb - once again the staff were charming. The room was a good size and very comfortable.

      Absolutely nothing - aside from the fact that no-one told us we could stay on for free....

      This hotel is very relaxed and charming. The staff at time appeared to be under pressure, but were always polite and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and the shower is fantastic! All in all a very enjoyable stay.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      I liked the service and the Bar restaurant. The food in the bar was very good. I liked the atmosphere also. The room was delightful, well decorated and comfortable. The breakfast was very good. The building was uniques and tastefully decorated.

      I think you should tell people the restaurant fills up early and you need to make a reservation before you arrive. We really enjoyed the bar for dinner so it was not a problem for us when we found out the restuarant was fully booked.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was really comfortable with its large bed. We ate in the bar - Food was well priced and tasty.

      Breakfast was served virtually cold but as everyone can have an off day I'd not let this detract from my overalll good impresssion. Also one little niggle... when eating in the bar food dishes were cleared from my partner while i was still eatingf - bad manners! and made me feel rushed.

    • Couple

      The design of the room.

      Location - the hotel is not very central (20 min walking from Trinity college)

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The Schoolhouse Hotel hotel is an excellent place to stay when on a trip to Dublin. We found the location good (about 15 minute walk to city centre) and the facilities and staff excellent. The bar is very good and serves a good range of food and drink. The restaurant was a bit pricey for evening meals but the breakfast is very good and sets you up well for a day sightseeing or shopping. The hotel has bags of character and an interesting history. The nearest DART station is a short 5 minute walk away and we went on a trip to Bray which is a seaside town to the south of Dublin.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Large room, excellent restaurant, free bottled water and biscuits, exceptionally large and very comfortable bed.

      The bathroom sink was blocked and remained blocked despite informing Reception. Disturbance from noise of people moving or talking in corridors.

    • Single
      9.6

      I thought that the building was really nice (old refurbished schoolhouse) and my room was also very nice and cosy. Maybe I was lucky that I got it at a good price, but this was really worth the money. I also liked the restaurant which is in the same premises as the hotel. Lovely food.
