The Clarence is a beautiful hotel situated on the edge of Temple Bar fronting on to the quays in the city centre. It is a stroll to great pubs and restaurants. The hotel is very stylish, clean and modern. The rooms are large and very comfortable. I would recommend a stay in this hotel which is owned by the band... More

Spent two days at The Clarence getting to know Dublin. The hotel was in walking distances of about everything and James at the front desk was great getting us in to a beautiful river view room and pointed us in the right direction to go exploring.

I know Bono is into rock n roll but I'm fairly certain when he invested in this hotel he was aiming for guests to get some sleep. Be warned, music from the bar next door will keep you awake -- for us it was well after 2 AM on a Tuesday night. And this noise was well above the typical... More

Arrived late but temple bar is always going. Hotel is very nice, and my room looking at the river was amazing. For the hotel location, room was very quiet. I can imagine if you're on floor 2 it might get noisy. Breakfast was top notch.m -full Irish. Will stay again.

I ate here with 3 other ladies and we had a fun evening with excellent food! The menu choices were great and the PornBurger to die for - basically steak and ale pie in a burger form!! Gravy was amazing. The atmosphere in the Clever East bar was warm and friendly and the service was very good. I will definitely... More

We decided on this place for the first few days of our honeymoon and it definitely was a great choice. The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I've ever experienced. When ordered food or anything they must have sprinted to the room they were so fast. The view was great an room was perfect.

Lovely Hotel in a great location. It's amongst the bars and restaurants of Temple Bar. Walking to all the sights and around Dublin is so easy from this hotel. I thought it may be noisy but with double glazing it was very quiet. Our room was clean and bed comfortable. The staff were very friendly and so helpful.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. The hotel is located in heart of Temple Bar, alongside the River Liffey, and wishing walking distance to everything. We booked the deluxe room with balcony, which was nice, but the balcony is very small and not private so we rarely used it - I would have... More

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
