Schoolhouse Hotel

Dating back to its opening in 1861 as a school, this canalside building at Mount Street Bridge has seen many changes, and it is now one of Dublin's trendiest small hotels - and an ideal place to stay while exploring Dublin.


A huge amount of business goes through the hotel and can show signs of wear and tear, but the spacious individually decorated bedrooms (all named after Irish writers) are well appointed, with king size beds, very good fabrics, air conditioning and power showers.


This Dublin hotels bedrooms have comfortable seating and a dining area, a necessary amenity as there are no public areas dedicated to residents. Booking is efficient and the reception staff are well organised and friendly in the Irish tradition.


The bar is lively and offers a good bar menu (see below) which is popular with the locals, and has is a well furnished outdoor seating area where you can enjoy a drink and a smoke.


Although the busy bar will be the main appeal for younger guests and it may not live up to any claims to be a ' special boutique hotel', this is generally a comfortable and calm place to stay.
