We had a lovely day in Dublin soaking up the Xmas atmosphere followed by a gig at the Bord Gais theatre that night. The Schoolhouse Hotel was the perfect venue for our stay. Just a few mins walk to the theatre and with free parking so close the city. The Hotel is small and inviting with the ambience you would...

Wonderful place to stay and dine. A classic schoolhouse for more than a century, now converted to a lovely little hotel. Each of the rooms is named for a famous Irish writer - ie, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Bram Stoker, etc. - a treat, as we are both writers. The canopy bed was delightful and comfortable. We ate in the...

We had our office Christmas Party in the Schoolhouse in December 2014. We were a group of 30 and we were all absolutely delighted with the charming venue, excellent food and warm hospitality. We would highly recommend the Schoolhouse for a venue for personal or business occasions and look forward to a return visit in the future.
