At The centre of Dublin you have the River Liffey which splits the City in two. On the Southside (even postal codes), you have Temple Bar, Grafton Street, Guinness Store HouseChristchurch & Trinity College. On the Northside (odd postal codes) you have Henry & Mary Street shopping district, IFSCThe Four Courts, O'Connell Street & Dublin Airport.

The Clarence is located in the heart of Dublin City over looking the River Liffey (on the South Quays)  and in the cultural quarter of Temple Bar. There is truly no better location from which to explore this vibrant city than from The Clarence.
