Cult rock star hotel on the banks of the River Liffey
Overlooking the River Liffey, The Clarence has achieved something of a cult status. Bedrooms preen in neutral tones of cream and oatmeal, splashed in crimson, gold and amethyst.

Good to know
Late-night clubs and pubs mean it's not the quietest locale at weekends.
43 rooms, five suites
All rooms have bathrooms, minibar, DVD/CD players, entertainment systems and high-speed broadband. The penthouse has an outdoor rooftop hot tub for the ultimate extravagance.
Aspire to the Penthouse, complete with rooftop hot tub. Otherwise, pick a river view room.
Eat & Drink
The Tea Room serves Irish and French cuisine with a twist. Fish and seafood are locally sourced, while only Irish beef, lamb and chicken are served. What’s more, breads, chocolates and chutneys are homemade. With its huge, tall windows and oak wood tables the room is both airy and elegant. Try the sirloin of Irish beef, followed by wicked chocolate fondant.
Full Irish breakfast is served until 11am
Available 24 hours
