Welcome to the Clarence...

The Clarence is Dublin’s premier boutique hotel located in the heart of the city, on the banks of the River Liffey just a stone’s throw from the famous Ha’penny Bridge.

Our hotel is a proud reflection of 21st century Ireland, simple and elegant, a contemporary aesthetic that embodies the very best of Irish hospitality.

The Clarence first opened its doors in 1852. The hotel was refurbished in the 1930’s and hosted an eclectic clientele, from visiting clergymen to bawdy musicians. The tired two-star stopover was bought by Bono and The Edge in 1992 and transformed into a contemporary boutique hotel, the kind of place that they would choose to stay themselves, if visitors to Dublin city. Their new Clarence Hotel opened in June 1996.

Our hotel is located within short walking distance of a myriad of Dublin city experiences to suit all tastes: from Michelin star Irish restaurants to cool indie coffee bars; big brand shopping on Grafton Street to cutting edge Irish designwear around Temple Bar, George’s Street and South William Street; theatres such as the world famous Abbey as well as contemporary venues such as the Project Arts Centre and the New Theatre. Catch a huge international band at The Olympia or discover some brand new Irish rock music in The Workman’s Club. Dublin’s biggest nightclubs are just a stroll away, from the opulent and exclusive Madison Nightclub to the fun filled party vibe of
Everleigh Gardens. Cultural Dublin awaits guests at The Clarence: Trinity College, The Guinness Storehouse, The James Joyce Centre, Dublinia, The Natural
History Museum and so much more.

With 50 bedrooms and suites to choose from, as well as our spectacular Penthouse Suites, The Clarence offers luxurious and stylish accommodation in the heart of it all. Within the hotel complex, guests can enjoy a number of dining and bar areas – The Study and The Octagon Bar in the hotel itself, as well as Cleaver East restaurant on the ground floor and The Liquor Rooms underneath the hotel. We also provide 24 hour room service and many added comforts for our guests to enjoy.

The Clarence is the perfect location for a stylish, modern city centre wedding or civil ceremony and our dedicated team will provide every assistance in arranging your beautiful day in one of our many spaces.

Our front facing function rooms and suites offer privacy and understated elegance overlooking The Liffey. We have all the facilities needed to host your event, from large conferences to intimate meetings. Our events team will assist from start to finish.  

From fun weekends to romantic getaways, family gatherings to solo business trips, a warm welcome, a luxurious room and superior service awaits you at The Clarence Hotel.

Twelfth Night

‘Love sought is good, but giv’n unsought is better’

A play about love, sex, hopes and dreams.

Our first production of Twelfth Night at the Abbey Theatre in over 30 years is a provocative and modern look at Shakespeare’s most renowned comedy.

Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia doesn’t love him. She loves Cesario who’s actually Viola in disguise. And then there’s Malvolio…where will his infatuation lead him? Love is complicated but can we choose who we fall for?

This fresh retelling of Twelfth Night is packed with original music and Shakespeare’s extraordinary language.

Director Wayne Jordan (Alice in Funderland, The Plough and the Stars) joins some of Ireland’s most exciting theatre artists of the moment to present this new production on the Abbey stage.

Julie Feeney

With support from Il Ficino String Trio.

Julie Feeney's sell-out shows on both sides of the Atlantic have received rave reviews whether solo, with ensemble, with choirs or with full orchestra and she composes, arranges and orchestrates all of her own music. Her 3 albums have been widely critically acclaimed internationally, receiving numerous awards. Her opera ‘BIRD’ goes into full production in 2016.

The Ficino Ensemble is a group formed in 2012 by Eoin Quinlan, Nathan Sherman and Karl Sweeney. The concept behind the ensemble was born both from a mutual appreciation of chamber music and a desire to perform the rarely played and often overlooked repertoire of the string trio, which forms the core of the group. Il Ficino will perform Ernst von Dohnanyi's Serenade for String Trio.

N.B Please be aware due to the layout of the Church, some seats may have a restricted view.
