The Schoolhouse, Dublin

For those seeking somewhere a little bit different in Dublin, The Schoolhouse Hotel is definitely ahead of its class. Unique, intimate and ideally located, the four star Schoolhouse Hotel exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere. The hotel is located just 15 minutes walk from many of Dublin’s main visitor attractions: the fashionable shopping area of Grafton Street, Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, The National Museum, The R.D.S. and the Aviva Stadium.

The original building of the hotel was designed by the famous architectural partnership of Sir Thomas Dean and Benjamin Woodward, a partnership which also designed two of Dublin’s finest buildings, the Museum Building at Trinity College and the Kildare Street Club. The building opened as St Stephen’s parochial School in 1861 and was at centre of the Battle of Mount Street during the 1916 Easter Rising. The school closed in 1969 and did not re-open again until 1998, when it opened its doors as the Schoolhouse Hotel. The Schoolhouse Hotel has retained many of its original features from its days as St. Stephen’s Parochial School. Its former classrooms now host the award-winning Satchels Restaurant and the lively and popular Inkwell Bar. Sleepy heads can relax in style. Combining old world charm with today’s modern facilities, the 4-star Schoolhouse Hotel comprises 31 deluxe en-suite bedrooms, fully equipped and to a very high standard.

What our customers have to say...

“To say the tour went well was an understatement. I can’t say enough for Brendan, our driver. We learned SO much about Ireland! There were other tour groups getting lost, or whose driver’s knew little or nothing. Brendan is a priceless asset. His ‘people skills’ were the best; his disposition, always positive. In sum, he MADE the trip the huge success it was! I thank you for sending him to us!”
