With a rich history dating back as 1859, the original building of the Schoolhouse Hotel was a small local schoolhouse in Dublin. Each of the classrooms have been lovingly re-appointed, two of which now house the award-winning Restaurant at the Schoolhouse and the hugely popular Schoolhouse Bar. Located in the heart of leafy Ballsbridge and on the banks of the tree-lined Grand Canal, Schoolhouse Hotel is within walking distance of the Aviva Stadium, St. Stephen’s Green, Trinity College and Grafton Street. It provides an oasis of calm free from the daily hustle and bustle of Dublin’s busy city centre. 

The restaurant and bar offer a wide variety of dining options from a casual gastropub experience to a fine dining experience, all serving local produce with a modern twist. It begins with breakfast served daily from 7.00 am and both the restaurant & bar continue serving food until 10pm. Head chef Francois Gelet is passionate about fresh local produce and this is carried into the food he prepares on a daily basis. As a Frenchman from the Loire valley, we’re not sure how he first reacted to a Full Irish Breakfast, but he has clearly taken it to his heart.

The 31 individual rooms are named and dedicated to some of Ireland's most important and influential people. The team at the Schoolhouse Hotel want you to feel comfortably at home, yet impeccably looked after. The staff are dedicated to discreet but friendly service around the clock. The peaceful, boutique rooms are individually designed to ensure a relaxing stay and sound night's sleep. Things like luxury duvets, power showers and fluffy towels are there for you whichever room you choose. Complimentary Wifi, coffee and tea, sparkling and still waters are standard and anything else is just a phone call away.

Step outside The Schoolhouse and you are immediately on your way to all the sights of central Dublin. Cross over the Grand Canal and it won’t be long before you come across the National Museum of Ireland, the National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral, and they even have a National Leprechaun Museum.
