    Room 209 was very quiet. Cool, calm environment & bars, great, masculine design. Loved free wifi, light switches, wooden scent in the hallways.

    Classy but understated, it's easy to see why The Clarence is a favourite for so many.

    Nice hotel and great cocktails. Worth mentioning that it's owned by Bono and The Edge. Yes, from the best rock band in the world.

    The Clarence is known for Octagon Bar & accompanying octagonal glass dome, owned by Bono & The Edge. Rumors suggest they can often be seen drinking here when in Dublin. Read more

    Rock and roll to the bone, The Clarence offers cocktails so moreish that after a few you’ll understand why rockstars throw TVs out of windows.

    Bono & Edge owned hotel. Fabulous location on the River Liffey and Temple Bar. Pleasant environment but the hotel needs work through and through. But U2 has been trying to rebuild it for years so...

    If you see a silly looking person with even sillier looking glasses, thats the owner.

    Glad The Octagon Bar is still a good place for cocktails on a Sunday afternoon.

    Hotel rooms going cheap all over Dublin. The Clarence is no exception right now. Try to avoid the ones overlooking East Essex Street and the Purty Kitchen if you want some sleep.

    If you really want to have a private conversation, just take over the snug between the Octagon Bar and the cozy Essex Street room.

    On a Sunday, you can sit in the library of the Clarence Hotel and read nearly every broadsheet Sunday paper known to Ireland. Read more
