We revisited The Clarence recently for the first time in about 10 years. We were delighted to see that while the rooms had become a little bit dated, in essence the Clarence is still as wonderful as ever. We preferred the Tea Rooms of yesteryear...More

We stayed here for three nights while touring Dublin, and the rooms were modern and chic. The very best things about the hotel were the AMAZING water pressure (you wish your home system had this kind of pressure, believe me) and the location which was...More

Dear Brian B, Thank you for your recent feedback. I am disappointed to see that the external noise from the area disturbed you but as you can imagine this is out of our control. I hope that the disturbance didn't have too much of a...More

We stayed here late August on our way back home to Boston to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We are talking about it still. Yes, it is pricey, but comparable with all Dublin hotels at this range, it seems. And yes, the room was small, again,...More

About
Description
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: ...More 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. Less
