The Clarence hotel is a fantastic place, modern, fresh, all round great experience. All floors served by a very efficient lift at the front lobby. Bedrooms spacious and modern. The beds themselves were spotless and if I could have, I'd have lowered one out of the window to a waiting van. You felt totally rested when you got up in... More

The hotel itself is beautiful, the room we had was spacious and really nice. The staff were very friendly and super helpful. The restaurant was a little pricey especially for the food we had but the service was excellent. At the end of our stay we were a little surprised at our total bill as it was quite a bit... More

Great location on the river in Dublin city centre. However, if your room backs out onto the rear of the building, expect to be kept awake by the music (& chatter from the smoking area crowds) coming The Workmans Club venue just below...a simple, low-cost addition would be to include earplugs in every room. While they can do nothing about... More

Myself and my wife stayed for one night here (Sunday) and we were delighted with the hotel. From the friendly staff to the delicious food in the Cleaver East restaurant we couldn't really find fault. The windows cancel out any noise from the bustling quays or busy Templebar streets so sleeping was great. River view room was quite nice with... More

The location of the hotel is spot on for those wanting to be at the busy part of dublin (temple bar) we got a good rate on the room through the Internet was a special offer so do look out for them. The hotel was brilliantly clean and tidy very swanky. Really loved our stay and would advise you to... More

Lee, thanks for choosing The Clarence to stay in this month. I'm happy to read that you had a good stay with us and your positive comments are very much appreciated. I also note your less positive comments and being in a low rise city the option for views other than other buildings can be limited. If you choose to... More

Years ago we used to really enjoy a few drinks in the Octagon Bar and a good meal in the restaurant, so despite the bad reviews, we thought we'd give it another lash. What a big mistake. The place is a shadow of its former self - a gloomy and dismal Octagon Bar - made worse by the lack of... More
