Comfortable Hotel in the suburb of Ballsbridge

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 9, 2008

The Schoolhouse Hotel is bit too far from downtown Dublin for those looking for a variety of restaurants and Dublins thriving nightlife. The hotel is located in the upmarket suburb of Ballsbridge and caters to business people with conference facilities.

It is a comfortable hotel with small but nicely decorated rooms. I found the bathroom fixtures a little old fashioned for my liking and the shower (over the bath) was in a strange position. Lack of hot water can also be frustrating.

There is a cooked to order breakfast along with continental selections available in the hotel restaurant. This room features high ceilings reminiscent of an old classroom but I didn't find it particularly inviting during winter. The rest of the hotel seem well heated. Light meals are available in the bar which has a nice atmosphere.

There is no one particular aspect of the facilities or service which would prevent me from staying there again, but being at least a 30 minute walk into the centre of Dublin it is not in the most convenient location for tourists. During winter at least you need to use the DART - Lansdowne Road station is the closest at 5 minutes walk away. There is car parking available.
Taxis into the city centre (O'Connell Street) are approximately EUR12.00.

Unique Quality: The hotel was once a school and carries this theme throughout.

Directions: South Dublin area. Closest DART station is Lansdowne Road. From there the hotel is a 5 minute walk.

AHEAD OF ITS CLASS.....

by written on October 30, 2003

For those seeking somewhere a little bit different in DUBLIN the SCHOOLHOUSE HOTEL is definitely ahead of its class!

Unique, intimate and ideally located within 10 minutes walk of Dublin city centre, Grafton Street and the city's main tourist attractions.

It is a **** Hotel which exudes a warm, friendly atmosphere and is the ideal venue for a leisurely weekend of midweek break!

31 air-conditioned rooms. It combines old world charm with all of today's modern facilities and conveniences.
It has regained many of its original features from its days as a parochial school, as its former classrooms now host the atmospheric restaurant and the lively and popular SCHOOLHOUSE BAR.

Unique Quality: reservations: 1850 344 000
