Lonely Planet review
This former monastery dates from 1867 and has recently been revamped as a family-owned hotel and restaurant. Despite the rooms being on the small side, there is nothing monastic about the facilities which include power showers, wi-fi and a superb bar and restaurant. The central location is ideal for exploring the town. Breakfast included.
Our independent authors have visited Scholars Townhouse Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Drogheda.
