Very centrally located hotel, easy walk into Grafton Street/ Stephen's Green. Room was perfect size for a short visit and Danny on reception was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served until 10.30 with a nice selection of pasties/ fruit etc and hot breakfast. Would happily stay in the Mont Clare again.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights. It is located close to the University and the DART station and within easy walking distance of the town centre, Rooms are clean and tidy but the security boxes could do with renewal. Breakfast was an extra and very good with variety. Staff were friendly and helpful, in particular a lady named... More

The room was very nice, small but adequate. The traditional breakfast was very good. Had a bit of entertainment by a ruckus by a couple men in the street that went on for an hour but otherwise no issues. Easy walk to restaurants and other areas of interest.
