“2nd Time Around”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Just back from another 10 days in this fab accommodation. The staff have to be given all the credit this year, they were great with myself and the kids. They even helped me out with my fussy eating habits. Last year we stayed at the same time of year and there was hassle with night time noise, you could here a pin drop, I don't know if this would be the same i high season. We will be back.

Stayed here for one night and very pleasant it was too! Staff are lovely, really friendly and the chicken curry was the best I have had in a long time! Room was very small but it was grand for what I needed. Couldn't get the wifi to work in my room but not a real issue for me. Overall very happy with the experience

I have stayed here many times. If there is one criticism I have to offer is that any negative comments about this hotel are truly unrealistic. The rooms are not vast but neither is the cost!
Scholars is not about spending time in your room and one would do so at the expense of missing the enjoyment of rapturous hospitality, a sophisticated ambiance, classic atmosphere and surroundings, great staff truly dedicated to doing their absolute best, great company, gourmet food and fine drink. This is a real gem and only the more inexperienced traveller could knock it.

The standards are remarkable high. Do not miss the chance if you have it to stay here. I am reasonable well travelled, have stayed in many a hotel, guest house, country club etc in many nations. Bring a loved one to Scholars, you will not disappoint them in any way.

Where do i start Scholars townhouse is a beautifully restored Victorian townhouse. Dripping with old world charm and opulant style you will immediatly feel special and wrapped in grandious splender.I always feel like dressing up when visiting this place . Sit and have a drink, book a meal and linger over a night cap by the open fire or escape up to your warm and very comfortable bed. You will not be disappointed with this Hotel as a destination to rival some of the finest in Ireland.Enjoy your trip.

Stayed 3 nights, staff answered all of our many questions on restaurants, laundry service, etc. It was nice to have our laundry sent out by the hotel and returned the same day. Interesting building with a history, decorated very nicely, clean and comfy room. The sink taps and toilet were hard to work, kind of a pain to use each day, but the shower made up for it with great water pressure and always hot water. The included breakfast was just wonderful and made the value of the room price even better. The elegant restaurant in the building was a bit too pricey for lunch and dinner for us, but there are several restaurants within walking distance that were good. This was a good location to explore the Boyne Valley by car.

We had a lovely four-night stay in Scholars Townhouse. The first two days were mostly recovering from jet-lag, but we were very comfortable, and totally ready to go when we left Drogheda. Be sure to have the chicken pie for dinner. Breakfasts are everything you could ask for, and the service is great.
