Amy Adejokun Section editor

This former school was transformed into a pretty hotel at the end of the 90s. Located in a residential area fairly far from the city centre, The Schoolhouse only has 31 guest rooms and no relaxation facilities. Travellers come here basically just to sleep, but also to dine and drink at the hotel's bar-restaurant. Various events are also hosted at the latter. Overall, a charming hotel recommended for travellers looking for some peace and quiet.

    • To know

    • Located in a quiet residential area in the south-east of the city, The Schoolhouse is about a half-hour walk from Dublin city centre. It's great if you want some peace and quiet, but a bit limiting if you're looking for a festive holiday.

    • With their refined, antique-style decor that is different in every room, the guest rooms alone are reason to stay at The Schoolhouse. Each one is named after an Irish celebrity, with two categories of rooms: Standard Deluxe and Canape Rooms. The only noticeable difference between the two types is the four-poster bed. As for the amenities, they are quite basic. None of the guest rooms have a safe or a minibar, but they do all have an interactive television (with a keyboard), tea and coffee-making facilities, and a Wi-Fi connection. We also liked the bathrooms, with their pretty decoration (wood floor, wallpaper) and their Gilchrist & Soames brand complimentary toiletries.
    • The charm of The Schoolhouse starts with the façade of its old building, which contains the reception, bar and restaurant. The guest rooms are located in a newer building built at the end of the 90s. The lobby seems slightly gloomy next to the charming entrance with its period tiling, probably due to the worn carpet, the old-fashioned sofas and computers, and the lack of light. It will most likely appeal to some tastes though! The other communal areas consist of the elegant restaurant and the very Irish bar-restaurant with a lovely terrace for sunny days. Don't bother looking for any relaxation facilities, as there are none in this hotel.
    • The Schoolhouse has two options for food: the elegant Schoolhouse Restaurant and the friendly, laidback Schoolhouse Bar. Open from 5:00pm to 10:00pm, the latter serves food in an intimate setting: grey carpet and seats, wooden tables, etc. The other restaurant proposes two set menus in a large, lively dining room: a lunch menu composed of light dishes (starters, sandwiches at about ?7/£6, salads at around ?10/£8.50, pasta, burgers, fish and chips, desserts), and a more elaborate evening menu. In addition to light bites, you can also find salmon at ?16.95 (£14.50) and beef at ?23.95 (£20.50).
    • Unlike most of its competitors in Dublin, The Schoolhouse does not charge for use of its private car park. Baby cots, on the other hand, cost ?10 (£8.50) per night.

This large Palladian house, Irish in style, blends old and modern features perfectly.

      A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, The Morrison was not built in honour of the famous rock singer Jim Morrison, but it does pay tribute to Irish musicians, bands and artists. Reopened in February 2013 after 10 weeks of refurbishment, The Morrison now boasts a designer interior - a rare choice of decor in this city where most hotels are decorated in a more classic style. Add to this the delicious restaurant and the art gallery, and The Morrison is unquestionably a safe bet in Dublin.

      The beautiful 5-star Dylan Hotel was not built in honour of the famous rock star. No, the Dylan simply chose to take up residence in the street of the same name. Now a small hotel with 44 guest rooms, the Dylan was first a hospital, then a hotel, before becoming the Dylan Hotel. It has been welcoming guests into its entirely unique, modern and elegant interior since 2007. Far from being a chain hotel, the Dylan has a bar, restaurant and lounge, but unfortunately no well-being centre.

      The Clarion, opened in 2001, is a pleasant modern hotel without much character. It is ideal for fans of hotel chains or, more generally, those looking for a good well-being centre! Apart from the massage rooms, sauna and hammam, the hotel also has a lovely large swimming pool, which is quite rare for the Irish capital. Neither too big nor too small, the Clarion Hotel enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the city centre, on the banks of the River Liffey.
