Great hotel, really nice rooms and an excellent staff. Excellent location and nice entry out the back door into the Temple Bar section of Dublin. I'd stay again and would recommend it to anyone I know

I was very excited about staying here due to the Bono/U2 connection and the hotel's location in the Temple Bar District. It was the last night of our stay in Ireland, and it was a nicely appointed hotel, with spacious comfortable room and king sized bed with AC in a bustling area. It had some minor maintenance items (wooden toilet... More

Stayed with my sister's for Sunday night last weekend. Very welcoming. Lovely room,very comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom. Very friendly staff. Wonderful breakfast. However returned to hotel at 11:20 and bar closed. Only option was a room with fire gone out and devoid of atmosphere.

I do love staying at the Clarence! We stayed there last September and had a great time. This time, because we were only staying for a short break, hubby wanted a room with a river view - and boy, did we get a view! A fourth floor suite with the most stunning view of the Liffey. Fantastic! We took lots... More

I stayed in the Garden Terrace Suite room that had the huge terrace overlooking Dublin. In principle, the room features are very nice. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom floor could use some work and the toilet had a tendency to stop up but this seems to be simply because some of the features in the hotel are... More

Thanks for choosing The Clarence for your recent stay while in Dublin to celebrate your birthday. It is regrettable that your request to have your room service items cleared while you were out was not done and that the member of staff who tended to your request upon return was not as prepared as he ought to have been.

Stayed here a few times and the service has alway been fantastic, the staff are helpful they offer you a map and are always on hand if you want to find somewhere. The rooms are great value for money. breakfast is great (eggs benidict 😋) drinks are around the same price as a local bar.

I've just spent a fabulous 3 nights at The Clarence - what a great hotel! The staff were so polite and friendly from the minute we arrived, and nothing was too much trouble for them.

I was in Room 214. Make sure you are not put there. On a Wednesday night the nightclub directly under the room window was active and I assumed it would not last too long. I was wrong. Understood then why there were 2 sets of ear plugs beside the chocolates and crisps. Had broken sleep until the early hours (did... More

It's a pity to read that the noise from a neighbouring late night venue impacted so much on your sleep during your stay with us, and that you feel it wasn't responded to properly during checkout the next morning. For this latter aspect please accept my apologies. I hope that on any future stay with us we can offer a... More
