Stay

  • The Clarence

    The Clarence first opened its doors in 1852. The hotel was refurbished in the 1930’s and its location on the Quays, the thoroughfare for entering and leaving the city, made it the perfect location for an eclectic clientele, from visiting clergymen to bawdy musicians. This tired and shabby 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.

    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 a vibrant and dynamic capital city. Within the hotel complex there are a host of experiences from Cleaver East, the tasting plate restaurant by Michelin star chef Oliver Dunne to the vintage chic of our subterranean cocktail and dining bar The Liquor Rooms, the only Republic of Ireland bar to ever be nominated in the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards. With 24 hour room service, lots of in-room treats and a warm welcome, The Clarence is a great starting point for your Dublin adventure.
