Description

A part of the Dublin scene since 1852, The Clarence Hotel was purchased in 1992 by two members of the rock group U2, Bono and The Edge. They took on the task of restoring The Clarence, creating their own vision of the ideal place to stay.

The Hotel reopened in June 1996 after a 20-month restoration and refurbishment programme, which transformed The Clarence from a traditional two star property to the owners’ personal idea of how a luxury hotel should be – intimate unstuffy, contemporary, idiosyncratic and efficient with an emphasis on personal service.

Its design merges the traditional and the contemporary to create an environment with its own unique and welcoming personality. Arts and craft style frames the basis of the interior with a subtle palette of the finest natural materials: Portland stone, American white oak, Italian limestone, leather and velvet.

The Clarence is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.



History

Built in 1852, The Clarence had last been refurbished during the late Thirties in the Arts and Crafts style. By the Seventies, while still retaining a sense of old world charm and dignity, it was past its prime. At the same time, the ranks of the original clientele, once drawn primarily from the clergy, judiciary and visitors from the provinces, were swelled by the artists, musicians, writers and designers who began to make the Temple Bar area their own. This easy influence of old and new made the Hotel one of the few places in Dublin where, whatever you looked like, you could sit down with your pint and engage in the fine Irish art of conversation.

During the restoration an additional floor was added, which now offers the Penthouse and several Suites.
