Dublin's premier boutique hotel located in the heart of the city on the famous River Liffey. Owned by Bono & The Edge of Irish rock group U2, The Clarence is very much a reflection of 21st century Ireland.
Simple but elegant, timeless but yet of its 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.
With 50 bedrooms and suites to choose from, as well as our spectacular Penthouse Suites, The Clarence offers luxurious and stylish accommodation in the heart of it all. Within the hotel complex, guests can enjoy a number of dining and bar areas – The Study and The Octagon Bar in the hotel itself, as well as Cleaver East restaurant on the ground floor and The Liquor Rooms underneath the hotel. We also provide 24 hour room service and many added comforts for our guests to enjoy.

Cocktails are great at The bar!
Room 209 was very quiet. Cool, calm environment & bars, great, masculine design. Loved free wifi, light switches, wooden scent in the hallways.
Classy but understated, it's easy to see why The Clarence is a favourite for so many.
Nice hotel and great cocktails. Worth mentioning that it's owned by Bono and The Edge. Yes, from the best rock band in the world.
The beds are super comfy. Room fittings are top notch. This is a classy place.
Incredibly rude staff, save your money for somewhere else
The Clarence is known for Octagon Bar & accompanying octagonal glass dome, owned by Bono & The Edge. Rumors suggest they can often be seen drinking here when in Dublin.
Great place for a quiet conversation

wobblywords: Rubes in paradise: A wacky room upgrade lands us in the penthouse at the Clarence Hotel in Dublin, where we're finding the overly attentive service quite confusing. There's a bidet fer chrissakes! This is prosecco, I believe.
