Lonely Planet review

A Victorian schoolhouse dating from 1861, this beautiful building has been successfully converted into an exquisite boutique hotel that is (ahem) ahead of its class. Its 31 cosy bedrooms, named after famous Irish people, all have king-sized beds, big white quilts and loudly patterned headboards. The Canteen bar and patio bustles with local business folk in summer.

Our independent authors have visited Schoolhouse Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Docklands.
