Lonely Planet review
This former monastery dates from 1867 and was recently revamped as a family-owned hotel and restaurant. Despite the 16 rooms being on the small side, there's nothing monastic about the facilities which include power showers, an atmospheric bar and a superb restaurant (bookings recommended). The central location is ideal for exploring the town.
Our independent authors have visited Scholars Townhouse Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Drogheda.
