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.

We loved The Clarence - location was outstanding. Just close enough to the Temple Bar area, but a step away from the mayhem! The staff was so awesome. We arrived with a million bags and 1/2 hour to return our car at the in town Hertz location. We literally dumped out bags in the

Lovely hotel in a great location overlooking the river. Close enough to Temple Bar but not noisy. We were given a free upgrade to a suite - (free upgrades are always a clever move by a hotel) Nicely done out and the views from the top floor were lovely. Excellent breakfast.

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.

"Some of the rooms overlook a busy bar and can be noisy and can smell like BBQ at night. "
"Ask for a quiet room if available as the Temple Bar area is a very popular nighttime destination."
"Rooms at the front of the building (river side) are quieter."
"If you want a nice view get a room at front facing the city."
"Room was excellent. Fantastically powerful shower. Very clean ..!"
