Historical Traveller Reviews of The Schoolhouse Hotel
superb hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
About a 10 - 15 minutes walk into the city centre which was a pleasant walk along side the canal & along the streets which were lined with lovely Georgian houses.
The hotel bar & restaurant were very good, food was excellent.
The air coach stops right outside the hotel.
You must allow yourselves plenty of time to get to the airport on your return journey home, Dublin traffic gets very congested in the afternoons especially Fridays, we sat on the aircoach for 2 3/4 hrs and actually missed our flight home!
Apart from that we had a wonderful holiday in Dublin.
We will not return.from ajw992
A little gemfrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you are looking for something a bit different this is it. Transport to and from the airport was so easy with the bus stop right outside. And although its about 15 - 20 mins walk to the city the bus also passes very close if you would rather not walk.
Take time to walk up the very pleasant canal too (to the left) or follow the canal to the right to find the DART train station for a trip up the coast. We went to Mallahide which is a pretty seaside village with a wonderful castle.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great Hotel, Great Value!from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed there after the recent Elton John Concert in the Point Theatre and can highly recommend it. We booked direct with the hotel through their website and took advantage of their sunday night special rate of 99 euro for 2 people, breakfast included.
The hotel is located next to the grand canal and within a 15 minute walk of Shelbourne Park, Lansdowne Road, and the Point Theatre. They have free car park facilities too which is great for a city location.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and named after well known characters such as bendan behan (we stayed in this room), oscar wilde and James Joyce. They include nice little touches like bath robes, ice delivered to your bedroom and even leave in a weather report for the following day so you can plan your events. The beds are massive and you also have a plasma tv on the wall.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything you could ask for and more, cereals, fresh fruit, irish frys, pancakes, danish pastries yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All in all great value and we will return soon.
Fabulous--exceeded all my expectationsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Rate of 99 Euros per room per night included full Irish breakfast, with buffet items including fresh fruit, fruit juices, any dry cereals, nuts, a selection of cheeses, a selection of bread, croissants, and pastries...plus menu items including bangers, eggs and omelets, bacon, ham, waffles and pancakes. I was disappointed with the Irish version of a mushroom and tomato omelet, but the Full Monty breakfast that my husband ordered was extraordinary. Our Sunday lunch in the on-site restaurant--bangers 'n mashed, topped with crispy fried onions--was excellent, and only 12 Euros per person.
Another big plus--the airport express coach, priced at 17 euros round trip per person, stops at the hotels front door! Allow about 1 1/2 hours to get to/from airport--traffic in Dublin is unbelievable...
Superb !from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful,and the hotel was well maintained,clean tidy and full of character. The rooms are well equiped with everything you need,tv,hair dryer tea & coffee (most welcome after travelling ).Highly recommend a stay at this hotel.
Unique and child friendlyfrom KayDenmark
The hotel was suitable for children and welcomed them. Both our room and the central staircase were childproofed, and there is a lovely playground and park (which opens at 10am!) down the street. Staff in the restaurant were very tolerant of my 18-month-old, who returned their kindness by breaking a ceramic pepper shaker.
Minor notes: the hotel is in a leafy residential neighborhood about 15-20 minute walk from downtown, which meant we only wanted to go downtown once a day. The closest newsagent or convenience store is also a healthy walk away. While the food in the restaurant is excellent, it is also generous, heavy and rather formal. The bar serves slightly lighter snack-type food, but I really found myself craving a shop where I could buy an apple or a scone or a Coca-Cola. The rooms have no mini-bar, although they do have a tea kettle.
Our room was clean and in excellent condition. However, it lacked a chest of drawers - I'm the sort of traveller that likes to unpack even for short trips.
All in all, a positive experience, and a hotel we would recommend to friends.
An amazing bit of culturefrom DCWorker

Irish live music and dancers The Arlington Hotel in central Dublin did a really good live show every night. Very resonable at 19 Euros for two course meal and no cover charge for entertainment. Four piece live band and dancers.Good value for money.
Guinness Fun to take the tour!
Baan Thai restaurant . This restaurant on Merrion street, a 10min walk away was a winner. Very intimate, great food, great service. Would definitely recommend!
