This hotel is exactly as reviewed on this site. Great Great location, right in the middle of temple bar with access to all the places to eat, shopping, and nightlife. But lets not forget noise. The hotel is very elegant with an old world decor to accompany its modern take on service. Our room did not have air conditioning which made keeping the windows open very important to get air. Obviously at night this presented as a challenge in that temple bar is quite noisy all night long. So being at the heart of Dublin's nightlife does not come without cost. The rooms were adequate in size and amenities and the hotel even had a small but again adequate fitness center for those of us that like to break a sweat. But whatever they were lacking in, they made up for in service. The staff was more then helpful in mapping out directions on foot, or providing the nearest place to grab a trolley or bus. We found everything very adjacent to the hotel so were in no need of any public transport. They were also helpful in holding our luggage, scheduling our taxis in that our flight times kept changing, and these things are important when dealing with the volatile Dublin international airport. The restaurant was less than I expected, as they did not have many options not drenched in butter or cream, and for myself who is lactose intolerant, this made eating somewhat a challenge. If your going to be on top of the other hotels you must be able to cater to all sorts of dietary restrictions. But regardless of my few criticisms, we got every penny's worth out of this hotel and I would definitely recommend it. Just make sure you ask for a room on a high floor not facing temple bar or your in for a symphony of drunken clamor for the duration of your nights.
- 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.
