“Short Stay”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

A quick business trip to Ireland found me staying at the Schoolhouse hotel for 3 nights. A fascinating & quirky conversion from a former school. Inkwell bar was a joy with draft Guinness & fantastic oysters at the bar as well as a great menu. Very friendly, helpful staff.
Nicely furnished rooms, very clean quiet & comfortable. I would stay again

We stayed the night of March 17 and this location was "parfect" as the Irish say - a short walk to the Temple Bar lively pub action but in a quiet residential area. The small hotel has plush, upscale decor but with the charm and quirky architecture of an old school. It's the staff, however, that makes this place great. Jennifer and Jenny at the front desk went beyond being helpful with directions and information and Jennifer even sent a follow-up email after we returned to the U.S to inform us a Global cell phone that was to be sent to the hotel had not arrived. The attached pub had a friendly bar staff and live music. Breakfast was both an individual hot meal and the continental buffet. Everything passes with flying colors!

We enjoyed our stay at Schoolhouse Hotel. The rooms were clean and quiet and the staff was helpful and it's location in Ballsbridge is VERY convenient for visiting Dublin. I'd recommend this to anyone traveling there!

Great hotel! Ten minute walk to Aviva and 20 min to Temple Bar. Not surrounded with the pub atmosphere. Resturant and Schoolhouse Bar on site. Food in bar was very good. Bartender was fun and made mixed drinks which doesn't always happen in Ireland! Since Beer is drink of choice! Front desk staff were very helpful with directions and offerring to carry luggage etc. Beds were pretty comfy with extra pillows. Negative-not in GPS/Sat Nav so have phone # available and minimal parking in a very small lot.

Room Tip: Several doors to go thru to get to room from reception area. There is an elevator!
