The Clarence boasts fifty bedrooms and suites, along with our world famous Penthouse Suite. Our rooms range from Classic through Deluxe and on to our River View and Garden Terrace Suites. Our furnishings are simple: classic Shaker oak, beds dressed in cool white linen, sitting elegantly in contrast to a palate of vibrant cardinal colours, rich drapes and luxe carpets. We aim to provide all the simple needs of our guests and we offer 'round the clock room service and all rooms have complimentary WiFi as standard. Our city centre location means car space is at a premium, but we do have a small underground car park that can be reserved for a small nightly supplement. It is also worth noting that our location does mean that the area can be lively at night, especially at the weekends and while we have taken every effort to reduce noise, it is not possible to block it all out. Please do consider this before booking. Within the hotel complex there are many drinking and dining experiences, from the chilled out bliss of The Study to the super stylish Octagon Bar, the perfect spot for an afternoon cocktail or a laid back nightcap. We also have Michelin star chef Oliver Dunne's Cleaver East restaurant within our walls and we are very proud that Oliver and his team provide all catering at the hotel, so whether it's a late night bite in your room or a Full Irish breakfast the next morning, you know your food will be of the highest standard, made from the freshest produce, closely cared for by Michelin starred hands. In the bowels of our building you will find the luxurious cocktail and food bar The Liquor Rooms, home to Dublin's arts set and the first ROI bar ever to be nominated in the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards. On our first floor, overlooking the River Liffey lies The Cleaver East Suite at The Clarence, which can be reserved for special occasions, from large weddings to intimate business meetings.

I was only in Dublin for the weekend on a mini vacation but found the hotel and it's staff well suited for my needs. Great location and very nice rooms. The front desk even emailed me to let me know when my room was ready. I would book there on my next trip into town.

I live in London, but I am lucky enough to have lots of well informed, and very dear friends in Dublin, going right back to my childhood. When the Clarence first opened many years ago, I was there as the guest of a good friend, who couldn't speak more highly of this

Right in the middle of Temple Bar, The Clarence is still owned by U2. Very helpful staff at front desk/Checkin was early and they took care of our bags until the room was ready. Walking distance to all the nightlife activities and shopping of the area. Definitely will stay here

Overall we had a great experience at The Clarence. The hotel was nice with a Great Staff! The location was perfect because you were in the Temple Bar area but not IN the Temple Bar area - little quieter at night.

We have also had early morning arrivals at The Clarence. If your room is not available the staff will store your luggage and The Study is a resident lounge that is available to you. Inquire at the reception desk. Have fun!

Aircoach or Airlink buses are right outside the arrivals terminals and both have city center routes and the price was 6 Euro per person. We chose Aircoach because it stopped on O'Connell St Bridge which was about a 5-10 minute walk from the Clarence Front Doors.
