The Clarence Hotel

Dating back to 1852, this 5* boutique city centre hotel on the south quays has long had a special place in the hearts of Irish people and currently enjoys cult status through its owners - Bono and The Edge, of U2 - who have completely refurbished the hotel and spared no expense to get the details right, reflecting the hotel’s original arts and crafts style whenever possible.

This wedding venues known for offering a non-traditional venue, The Clarence is the place for style-conscious smaller weddings; there are plenty of churches to choose from nearby (St Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street, is just 10 minutes’ walk) and blessings can be arranged in the hotel.

A dedicated wedding co-ordinator can arrange everything from a vintage car or other special transport for the bride and groom (and a helicopter, chauffeured cars, or coach for guests) to beauty treatments at the hotel spa, Therapy @ The Clarence, or a hair stylist to come to your room.

The reception is held in The Clarence Suite - a bright, uncluttered room on the first floor, overlooking the River Liffey - and the hotel’s renowned restaurant, The Tea Room, is also available for exclusive hire on certain days of the week. Public rooms have real character - the oak-panelled Octagon Bar has a club-like atmosphere, for example, and The Study is a quieter room which feels like a cross between a library and a drawing room, with the comfort of an open fire.

Accommodation, which includes a stunning penthouse suite, offers a luxurious combination of contemporary comfort and period style, with up-to-the minute amenities, and the hotel is within walking distance of landmark attractions including Trinity College and Christchurch Cathedral.
