In the temple bar area , a walk to everywhere , is this hotel claim to fame...it needs an interior decorator URGENTLY !!!! terrible bar and bar staff , fair priced wines and eatable food but no more,very good service everywhere else in the hotel ,an excellent base to visit Dublin from . wish mister Bono would take 10 euros out of his 200 millions to fix the place up....but he is not a generous man ( that is the proper way of saying this...)

We recently stayed here as we had visited the hotel often many years ago when we lived in Temple Bar. It is nicely decorated all in wood and hasn't aged since we were last here 14 years ago. Our room was large and so quiet I couldn't believe we were in the centre of Temple Bar! The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast wasn't included in our stay and was a little pricey at €19 per person but they did give guests a €3 voucher. Have to say the breakfast was great. I had the pancakes and bacon yum.

Never again my room had thumping music like being in a nightclub to gone 3am and when complained to reception nothing happened no one explanation. Originally was upgraded to a suite (203) the most noisiest hotel Ever in Dublin....

this room should be free as it’s almost part of the club!!!! Would get more sleep
On the street......

If you want quiet and sleep don’t stay here .. never again and I am here all time in city....last mistake I make

It's a pity to read that you experience such disturbance from a neighbouring venue of the hotel during your recent stay. We have made efforts to reduce the impact of this though it's not possible to block it entirely. It's unusual that the room you occupied experienced noise at all as typically this room is not impacted upon but nevertheless your experience was otherwise and this is of course regrettable. It's disappointing to know you won't be a returning guest and we appreciate you chose The Clarence on this occasion.

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
