The Clarence Hotel's claim to fame is that it was once, or maybe still is, owned by members of Irish Rock band U2. I've never stayed but have visited on a few occasions for drinks. I'd describe the bar as quiet, unassuming and feeling a...More

I like the Clarence, it's location and rooms are excellent and I've stayed there several times. There is a major problem with it though, Music blaring from the nightclub next door kept me awake until 3 a.m. I won't be staying there againMore

Lovely hotel and great location. Hotel is right in the heart of Temple Bar so we were warned to expect some noise, but it wasn’t anything that much. We had a room overlooking another bar, our room was very spacious, super bathroom but no view...More
