Stayed for just one night, as we were attending a family function in the town. Room was small but perfect, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and had everything you need in a hotel. Lunch in the bar was good value and delicious. Breakfast was also excellent. The best though was the staff, from check in to check out. Nothing was a...

Let's get it out of the way. Yes, the rooms are small. But wow is this hotel, wonderful! This hotel oozes old world charm and grace. Darkly paneled walls, rich tones, chandeliers, opulent antique furniture downstairs. Upstairs in the rooms it is more of the same. My room as said, was small, comfortable bed, steady, wifi, small but serviceable television,...

We probably visit Scholars couple of times per month, sometimes with friends and often with family. Typically, we prefer the casual atmosphere in the Bar rather than the Restaurant but with that said, anytime we've eaten in the restaurant its been excellent. Quite a few overseas work colleagues have stayed at the hotel at various times with some of them...

Booked in for one night around the Winter Solstice (visiting Newgrange) and were impressed by the ambience and comfort of this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar has a great vibe! Why only four stars? - we chose to eat in the restaurant and were a little underwhelmed. Despite using lovely, fresh local produce - in...

We came for the music festival and stayed two nights. The restaurant and bar were busy, testament to the delicious food. The staff were invariably friendly and went the extra mile, including letting us keep our room a little longer on checkout day, which was much appreciated. Lovely place, highly recommended.

Great staff and service make this little hotel well worth recommending. Lots of atmosphere with very interesting murals, not to everyone’s taste I’ll bet. Nice little bar, great bar food and super breakfast.

Excellent stay again at Scholars . The staff and service score very highly and significantly they seem to retain all their staff . The restaurant is really brilliant and the team in both the kitchen and dining room score full marks . We can't wait to return . Nice cozy bar too !!!!

Scholars Townhouse is THE upscale place for a night out in Drogheda, Louth. Fine woodwork everywhere, and the resturaunt and lounge are both old-style and comfortable. I only had breakfast (3 times), and it was as good as any I've had in Ireland. I've heard that other food offerings are also very good. The staff were all professional, helpful, and...
