Couldn't have been in a better location right opposite the beautiful St Stephen's Green. Could walk to almost anywhere in central Dublin. We got the airport bus (700)and it dropped us off literally just around the corner and the pick up point was just opposite. Staff were really great and so helpful in reception. We were quite late arriving but...

I was expecting great things from this hotel as my room was costing €230 for 1 night. I had an entirely disappointing stay and most certainly will never return. I was staying here for business and arrived starved straight off a plane. When I got to reception I asked if food was possible and was told that the restaurant was...

This is a gem of a place. Food is incredible, and the decor and surrounding are beautiful as well. It's a lovely spot to have lunch or dinner, and great for special occasions. Really lovely staff. You're really well looked after from the moment you come into the building.

Great location...was really looking forward to it and was quite disappointed...room at very top on a quiet Sunday evening, nothing offered on arrival..ie. No tea, coffee etc...nobody bothered to show us to our room....just here is your key and get on with it...too commercial with no welcome or warmth. Felt more interest was in those attending the restaurant versus those...

Just left The Cliff Townhouse, had a family confirmation there. The service was exceptional a special thank you to Gerard who made our lunch very special. The food was wonderful as was the table they chose for us. It's been a while since we enjoyed a lunch so much in Dublin as we live in Portugal and do not get...

I travel regularly with business and I was really looking forward to my stay at the Cliff TownHouse hotel, it looked exquisite. Due to the bad weather, I arrived quite late. All I wanted to do was relax in comfort as I was exhausted. I was given a room on the top floor, and I had a heavy bag. I...

We stayed here purely because we had spent a beautiful night in The cliff house hotel in Ardmore in January and noticed that the same family had another Cliff house hotel in Dublin. We were so disappointed. It had some good points.. The location of hotel is fantastic. The welcome was friendly. The bed was very comfortable. But it was...

We visited this fabulous restaurant on Valentines Day at lunchtime with friends and my daughter. Excellent reception from the staff, we were shown to a lovely round table at the front of the restaurant just inside the window, which was perfect on the lovely sunny afternoon. We had an excellent Lunch with great Wine. Great service, Will definitely return.

The chef here must be complimented. Luncheon in the Cliff Townhouse restaurant in Dublin started with the best crab bisque soup that I have ever tasted, and this was followed by a really excellent fish pie. The desserts looked good too, although I didn’t have one. So based on my experience, admittedly limited, the food here is second to none,...

I have stayed in many hotels in Dublin over the past few years but I think I have now found my go-to hotel. Excellent location right on the green, smart townhouse more like an upscale B&B rather than a hotel, comfortable room and larger than expected, free wifi and a breakfast than was absolutely superb. Home made jams and breads,...
