The Old Schoolhouse Restaurant
Food was absolutely gorgeous as usual and the girls in the restaurant were so so so nice so friendly and kind, made me feel very comfortable
Lovely restaurant with very sizeable food portions and fair prices. I enjoyed my time in the Schoolhouse and so did my partner. I will be recommending to friends.
The best place in Swords for food and drinks. The staff are top class and very professional and friendly.
Kate and the girls were great. The service was good and the waitresses are all friendly and attentive. The food as delicious. We were in on Sunday and everyone is still talking about how nice the food was. Fantastic value as well with the Sunday menu. Options for 2 or 3 courses.
I got the prawns to start - so so good. And the chicken and mushroom pasta for mains. Will definitely be back soon!
Meal was good but wouldn’t be rushing back and wouldn’t recommend it to a friend. Not nice to have to walk through beer garden to get to bar and restaurant.
This is second time we celebrate family ocasion in Old School. All was perfect. Food is lovely. Staff very nice and friendly. Waiting time is ok. Good price for delicious food. Will be back definitly.
The food in the bar is better than the restaurant. The Sunday menu isn’t great. There’s so much more choice in the bar. The food wasn’t hot. By the time we got a couple of bites it was cold. The restaurant bit is fairly small but it was louder than the bar.
My partners first visit he loved it
We plan to visit again soon
Excellent except a little expensive for a restaurant of that spacing & noise .
Sunday Menu Lovely food at a good price and excellent service.
Food was absolutely delicious, wings amazing, fillet steak melt in the mouth cooked to perfection, desert unreal, looking forward to going back soon

A great night out with an early bird Christmas meal . Great value decent sized portions and no waste . Excellent presentation of the food and very attentive staff .
Great night last Saturday in the schoolhouse. Lovely birthday evening
Great range of dishes. Something to please everyone. Staff are friendly and attentive
Great service excellent staff food very good - group of 13 well catered for and plenty of attentive staff - the pub was packed and can not fault the service
Food was very tasty but was not served hot. Mussels some were undercooked. As a diner I like to be asked throughout meal simple questions like 'is everything ok' , 'can I get you anything', which did not happen meaning each time we either had to get up or call a waiter.
Food and service was fantastic couldn’t fault it in any way. Will definitely be back!!
We were in the restaurant up stairs thank god we booked because down stairs was very packed and there was a long wait for tables love this place for food but can be very busy at times
10/10 food was absolutely perfect and so delicious!
Service was also 10/10
Lovely atmosphere, beautiful food, great friendly service. Highly recommend the schoolhouse for any occasion.
The set menu is really good value for money at €26 for 3 courses. Really good portions and very tasty food. For starters the prawns and chicken wings stood out and for mains the pork plate was excellent. Service was always was excellent, all staff are very pleasant.
Parking is non existent!!! There was so much dust and even spider webs!!!!!!! One of the waitresses was great but another was completely off... putting our food besides us instead of in front, gave us wrong change (less than she should), neither knew info about the wines! My chair was improper for use... I could feel the springs!! The table wasn’t properly clean! Not enough space to hang our coats. But the food was fantastic!!! We Went to the restaurant upstairs not exactly the downstairs place of old school bar. Ohhh and somehow we made a reservation 3 weeks before and when we showed the confirmation email the waitress said we had to wait because there was no table for us or even our names there!
THERE IS A LOT TO IMPROVE GUYS!! I expect much more from a 100€ dinner!
Our lunch was absolutely amazing. Very tasty! we have pre ordered our meal so it was even easier. We highly recommend this place!
This is the best place in Swords to eat. The food is just lovely and I have tried everything on the menu. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed.
We ordered cocktails before dinner which took 30 minutes to arrive and they were not made correctly. I ordered a gin martini and I got a glass of white vermouth and a separate balloon glass of gin filled to the top with ice. When I informed the waitress that a martini has the vermouth added to the gin and served up, she said I could pour the vermouth into the glass with the gin! After waiting for drinks we were ignored until we flagged down a waiter to order dinner. The food was fair but nothing special. The sticky toffee pudding was more caramel then that anything else and was overly sweet. The wait staff seemed like they were poorly trained or just didn't care.
Preference for bar food and seating to the restaurant which is dimly lit and pricing could be displayed better when supplements are required for some courses.
We booked this restaurant as we had had two previous favourable experiences here. We were celebrating a family occasion, there were 7 of us in our group. Service was excellent, waiting staff were pleasant, efficient & friendly. We had a lovely memorable evening with good food. Will definately return.
Whilst the food was quite good the service was absolutely appalling. My meal had to be returned as meat was under cooked and when it was returned it still was not cooked correctly. We were waiting 20 mins to get someones attention before I finally went up to request the bill.
I have eaten here in the bar many times but have never had such a bad experience.
The old school house never disappoints.. great food... great staff ... great atmosphere suited to all ages .. you’re never too old or too young to hang out here .. it’s got it all and delivers consistently... still our fav bar and restaurant in north co Dublin ...
Excellent value with the €22 menu for 2 course. Very nice & pleasant service. Wine list just ok but could have some better wines at similar prices. My wife was extremely complimentary about the ladies toilet.
Very good meal, quick pleasant service, nice bar for pre/post meal drinks.
I would recommend the early bird menu. Good value and polite service. Maybe serve the lamb shank on a plate rather than in a bowl. It's quite a generous portion so a bit awkward to eat in a bowl.
