Fantastic staff

Our 2 nights stay were great. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was big, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good and a lot of choices. We will definitely stay there again.

Short stay

Pros: Its character a touch of old and modern style. the location is excellent for people who are visiting without a car. Close to luas, dart, and rail.
Cons: I was not around long enough to make any suggestions.
Location: Plenty of bars and restaurants in Temple bar.Public transport dart, luas, rail and bus are all within easy walking distance.
I found the staff very welcoming withot being over the top. I did not use the bar or restaurant during my stay. The bedroom was well laid out. It was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletories. I had a good sleep and only noticed noise when another guest took a shower at 6.30am. I would return to the Clarence and I would like to visit the Restaurant on my next trip.

Really enjoyed fantastic location. Huge room.

Would recommend it in a heartbeat. Lovely restaurant on site. Huge bedroom and no noise pollution even with a large smoking area of a bar directly outside.

great location

Super location in Temple Bar. Very clean room and very nice staff. As it is in Temple Bar you should expect a little bit of noise from the street.

Konnten bereits vor dem Mittag einchecken, abwicklung einfach und unkompliziert. Haben ohne Frühstück gebucht. Vor Ort wurde uns mitgeteilt dass das Frühstück a la carte ist( nur bezahlt was man isst). Würden daher wieder ohne Frühstück buchen( was teurer gewesen wäre). Trotz anbindung an Bussstation/ umgehender Partymeile haben wir super geschlafen. Alles Einwandfrei gewesen.
