Took my wife here for her birthday weekend, including a show. Staff were superb, and the atmosphere was amazing. It was very quiet, yet we were always attended to when we needed it. Will definitely be back.

A party of 6 of us spent two nights at the Clarence in April and I have to say, it is a lovely hotel, in a great location and we were very well treated by front of house staff. When I booked, however, I requested quiet rooms as I had read a review on this site, warning of rooms overlooking... More

We stayed here on a visit to Dublin and weren't disappointed even though we booked through a discount website. Our room was super smart, big, comfy bed, massive bathroom and a view. The octagon cocktail bar is fab and the mixologists will make any drink at all and name it after you. Delicious. Excellent location for Temple Bar without being... More

Stayed a The Clarence for the second time and I am so impressed. I usually stay at The Conrad or Hilton but The Clarence is smaller and more personal. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The room was spotless and very comfortable. I stayed in room 303 which was more like an apartment. The room service menu is spot... More

Great hotel. Room verey well equipped and nicely decorated. Especially kind and helpful Staff. Very well located to visit Dublin but be aware that Temple Bar is just around the corner and that Friday night creates a lot of noise''. The Cleaver restaurant is offering delicious food.

Our room was right over the Workmans club. It was stupidly loud until 3.30am with music and people screaming/partying. Would never stay here again, mainly beacaue they sold us the room and never warned us about the noise.

Thanks for your recent stay here at The Clarence. It's a pity to read the noise from the neighbouring Workman's Club impacted so much on your stay. We are, however, transparent about the noise potential when staying here in The Clarence on our website where we make guests aware it's worth noting that due to our location noise can be... More

we came to Dublin for a long weekend. The hotel is in a fantastic position right by temple bar. Staff are very friendly and the rooms are very comfortable with great views over the river. The bar is really nice.
