A complimentary glass of champagne on arrival.

WHEN BONO AND THE EDGE BOUGHT UP THE CLARENCE, fans were unsure what to expect. But the renaissance is fabulous; things are pretty spiffy here by the Liffey and The Clarence has achieved something of a cult status.

The refurb has stayed true to the building's restrained Arts and Crafts interior, marrying classical Irish with modernism. Public areas retain their American oak panelling, stone floors and bronze-framed windows, set off by Shaker style furniture. But this clean-limbed simplicity is deceptive – the mood at The Clarence is decidedly sybaritic.

Individually designed bedrooms (not huge but lavish) preen in neutral tones of cream and oatmeal, splashed in signature shades of rich crimson, gold, amethyst and chocolate. The look is set off with nickel-plated period desk lamps, Egyptian cotton sheets and candle sconces with trendy glass diffusers. Rooms also boast up-to-the-minute sound systems and a great choice of albums.

Wrap-around roof terrace

The loft-style Penthouse suite is a wow, complete with a baby grand piano, wrap-around roof terrace with to-die-for views and outdoor hot tub – plus, plus, plush. If it hasn't been snapped up by a visiting star, you could always give your plastic the battering of a lifetime and stay here.

The chef's award-winning menu in the airy Tea Room restaurant – a former ballroom – isn’t to be quickly waltzed through. Dine on critically acclaimed new wave Irish food – the the deep-fried bacon potato cakes  are peasant’s perfection.

You can also book a pampering massage before having a snifter in the bar, ready for a night out.  You’re on Dublin’s Left Bank near the hot and happening Temple Bar district, with the city at your feet. Rock on, Clarence.
