Review of our 4-star hotel near Temple Bar

"Very pleasant hotel in a great location. Near Temple Bar, but not noisy at all. Within walking distance of many classic Dublin sights, good restaurants for any budget, public transportation (including the excellent DART system) and across the street from the Liffey. We would certainly stay at The Clarence again", by Tom S on tripadvisor.
