About the hotel

The Clarence is Dublin's premier boutique hotel located in the heart of the city, on the banks of the River Liffey just a stone's throw from the famous Ha'penny Bridge. Our hotel is a proud reflection of 21st century Ireland, simple and elegant, a contemporary aesthetic that embodies the very best of Irish hospitality. The Clarence first opened its doors in 1852.

The hotel was refurbished in the 1930's and hosted an eclectic clientele, from visiting clergymen to bawdy musicians. The tired two-star stopover was bought by Bono and The Edge in 1992 and transformed into a contemporary boutique hotel, the kind of place that they would choose to stay themselves, if visitors to Dublin city. Their new Clarence Hotel opened in June 1996. Our hotel is located within short walking distance of a myriad of Dublin city experiences to suit all tastes: from Michelin star Irish restaurants to cool indie coffee bars; big brand shopping on Grafton Street to cutting edge Irish designwear around Temple Bar, George's Street and South William Street; theatres such as the world famous Abbey as well as contemporary venues such as the Project Arts Centre and the New Theatre. Catch a huge international band at The Olympia or discover some brand new Irish rock music in The Workman's Club. Dublin's biggest nightclubs are just a stroll away, from the opulent and exclusive Madison Nightclub to the fun filled party vibe of Everleigh Gardens. Cultural Dublin awaits guests at The Clarence: Trinity College, The Guinness Storehouse, The James Joyce Centre, Dublinia, The Natural History Museum and so much more.

Style in Dublin

Room was presented in a simple Art Deco style with solid wood furniture.

Beautiful visually & attention to detail very pleasing. A few minors snags but not worth mentioning. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Subdued lighting not to my liking but I was seated by a window overlooking a bookshop with my family name on so pleasantly surprised. Service attentive , menu inviting & food excellent. Only marred by the 20 minute wait for desert which was disappointing- both the wait & said desert which looked attractive but somehow didn't quite work. An enjoyable stay nonetheless & ignoring the noise from the bar area plus early morning neighbours!

Stay at Clarence

Excellent hotel.

Staff very welcoming and helpful. Room was superb. Dinner at the Cleaver East was amazing. Only downfall was breakfast - a little bit too expensive for what you get. Two of each item was expected (full Irish) but continental breakfast was unlimited.
