We traveled to Dublin on the tail end of a business trip to London for a few days of fun. This hotel was booked based on Trip Advisor reviews, and overall price.
This hotel is located right on the River Liffey, and some rooms have a view of the river. It is not located in the prime tourist areas, but if you don't mind a short walk it could work.
We arrived via the Virgin train and Irish Ferries from London, and had a small window to make the tour of the Guinness Storehouse before closing. We rushed in to drop the bags, and after a quick explanation the bellhop had our bags out of the cab and on our way with no hassle.
This is new hotel in an old building and has a warm, classic feel to it.
Note, that there is no air-conditioning in the rooms. A small floor fan was placed in my room, but I tend to keep the room cold, and the fan was not doing it for me.
There is a very nice restaurant in the hotel as well.
The staff in this hotel make the difference. We needed to keep some bags for a day after we checked out, and the staff happily did so.
- 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
