Stayed overnight as we were going to the Bord Gais Theatre and this hotel is very close. The hotel rooms are quite nice but maybe a bit dated now. (This was my second stay). There was a problem with our first room as there was a dreadful smell wafting in occasionally. When we said at reception they immediately moved us. No problems with the new room. We had a meal in the restaurant from their pre theatre menu which was great value and the first two courses were delicious but both desserts were so-so. As with the reception staff the blokes serving in the restaurant were very helpful, pleasant and friendly. The breakfast next morning was disappointing. I had the Irish fry which was ok but no soda or potato bread. My wife's porridge was indelible - a solid glug in the bowl. On the whole the stay was just ok and I would have given a two star review but have added an extra star for the staff.

We loved our visit in Dublin and our stay at the schoolhouse hotel. We found the staff extremely helpful and resourceful. They really were wonderful! The accommodations were perfect and the setting lovely. The hotel has a lot of character set in an old schoolhouse next to the canel. It was about a 15-20 minute walk into city center. The bus(air coach) stops right in front of the hotel from the airport. Restaurant had great food- waiter staff also made us feel like home- bar with terrace outside was great on our sunny day. All and all - great choice for boutique hotel outside city center.

Lovely !! Stayed on level 1 Easter and then returned on the following weekend. I requested the same room which was the one facing the road and the garden. Noise was less than most other cities and I left the windows open all night !! The bathrooms were just adorable. Plenty of hot water, never had a problem. The room was large and comfortable, the bed was so perfect, internet was hassle free, and it was ALSO available using a supplied keyboard and the TV. The windows were large and both opened wide for plenty of fresh air. Park your car in their own lot for hassle free enjoyment of Dublin, 10-15 minute safe and easy walk to everything. Enjoy all the Dublin doors as you walk to town. Breakfast was wonderful. Staff always so helpful and attentive. What did I like least ? I could not figure out how to turn on the bath vent, thats the best negative I can think of.

We stayed in the School House Hotel last night when we went to see Warhorse in the Bord Gais Theatre nearby. The hotel was great with on site parking and lovely rooms. Bar was busy but n bother getting served and the breakfast in the restaurant was super! Location was great if want to walk or run in the mornings. Great route along the canal towpath. Would recommend it!

Clarify - This is what I would rate as Good. Reasonably convenient to attractions (around a 20 minute walk to town centre), very clean, great staff and the building has character. On the downside, the bathrooms are very compact and the hotwater was problematic if you were in a busy showering period. Breakfast was very slow the first couple of days, but fine the next couple. The quality of the cooked breakfast was very good and dinner was also very good quality. We would stay here again.
