My second stay at The Clarence and in my opinion it just gets better and better. The location is perfect, the food quality and dining experience top class but to me it is the staff that will make me return again. They make you feel so special and welcome without any stuffiness or drama.

Loved The Clarence. It was elegant and understated with touches of cool (purple leather chairs, real artwork in the rooms, great restaurant, very cool bar). The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed one night at the Clarence hotel in Dublin. The room was ordinary, but also had a balcony towards the street with a fantastic view over Dublin! Had to close all windows because of the night life in the city. The bed was a king size one, great sleeping comfort. Had to pay extra for breakfast, a buffé with the... More

This was our first trip to Dublin and the Clarence was perfect. Friendly staff, very well-renovated, and an amazing location right on the river. They also have double pained windows so it keeps out the noise of the very busy city at night for a good night's rest.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
