"Bono & The Edge own this place!" The Clarence Tip by Bilimari

The Clarence, Dublin: 1,496 reviews and 5 photos


This is a 5 star hotel, and the room rate is much higher than other hotels in the area, which means no screaming kids, or no drunk acting stupidly at night. I really enjoyed the two nights I stayed there. The room was great with very comfortable bed and a big soaking bathtub. I liked the wooden floor. Everything is simple and clean. Every staff assists you with a nice smile. The hotel is owned by Bono and The Edge of U2. Many celebrities stay here. Book the room early, especially if you plan to be there on the weekend.

Unique Qualities: The hotel is located in the Temple Bar area facing the River Liffey, you can walk to lots of attractions in the city centre.

I liked The Study very much, where I could work with my laptop sitting comfortably by the fireplace with a cup of coffee. The room is available only to the hotel guests.

Internet connection is available in every room.
