Newest Review: ... stay here for 2 nights at a cost of 250 euros per night for a 'king size room with balcony' and were extremely excited about seeing and staying in the hotel. What a disappointment. Despite spending a fortune on the renovation, all that was achieved was a décor more akin to staying at Hogwarts. The communal areas of the hotel are very small and you almost feel like you're staying in a youth ... more

The Clarence in Dublin relies on two important factors to generate business, firstly it was renovated in the 90s by a certain Bono from U2 and secondly it is fairly central and overlooks the River Liffey.

~ ~ This was a very old Dublin hotel which had become a bit run down and frayed around the edges over the years, but that has now all changed. ~ ~ The reason.
