I visited the Clarence with a friend for their infamous brunch. We were served a 2 course meal as well as unlimited mimosas/bellinis for only 35 euro. It was a great experience with great service. I would definitely do this again!

Good rooms plenty of space. Lots of noise from Temple Bar parties until 4 am. Front desk staff not very helpful or reliable. Refused to book a tour and messed up booking a taxi wrong time and wrong number of passengers.More
