We recently visited Dublin and stayed in the Cliff Town House hotel. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The room (203) was lovely on the top floor overlooking the St Stephens Green. We had a seafood platter for lunch which was fabulous. The breakfast on departure was 5 star . We would highly recommend this hotel and... More

We stayed again after out last trip and weren't disappointed. The building itself is beautifully maintained and the breakfast is terrific, almost silver service. It has the charm of a boutique hotel , charming staff , clean and comfortable rooms. It's reasonably priced considering how central it is and is fast becoming ours and our friends place to stay in...

We were only at the Cliff Town House for one night prior to an early flight home after 10 wonderful days of driving around Ireland and visiting / celebrating with family. We've stayed in Dublin many times before, but like to try different hotels based on recommendations or research. We chose the Cliff Town House based on reviews, the location... More

My wife and I stayed here on 4 November and enjoyed the experience. We had a cosy, comfortable room facing St Stephen's Green (James Joyce room). The environment was that of a welcoming Georgian family guesthouse,a quaint place with friendly helpful staff-a unique , positive experience in an unparalleled location. Very high rating as a guesthouse , with good amenities... More

Stayed here one last week. The staff were super friendly and provided some excellent tips for Dublin. The Bedroom was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious in the morning, good coffee, some freshly orange juice, croissants, and two duck eggs. This was included in the room price. I will be back.

Had a lovely one night stay this week. Fabulous friendly staff especially Laura at reception. Breakfast was delicious. Room although small was perfect and decorated beautifully. Only issue was the shower which wasn't great. We will be returning .

We stayed 2 nights in September at The Cliff Townhouse and had a beautiful room looking out on St. Stephens Green. Staff was always ready with suggestions for dining. One of the finest pubs in Ireland was only one block away with great food and live traditional Irish music. The hop-on hop-off bus is just outside the front door, and... More
