I stayed in this hotel due its close location to the airport. I was slightly worried about noise but I did not hear a single plane in my room - must be triple glazing or something!!! I found the hotel to be clean, modern and efficient. The staff were all friendly and helpful and all in all I enjoyed my stay and have already booked to go back for a short break with my family.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Clarion Hotel Dublin IFSC

run of the mill hotel

from Dubskin
The Carion is nothing special, a business hotel without character. The rooms are small though some benefit from a balcony with spectacular views of Dublin, the river and the mountains. It is a fair bit to city centre on foot though a taxi ride should not be more than € 7. The hotel bar on my visit was blasting out TV on big screens (If you don't like it, tough!) and was not properly stocked: no olives for a Martini to be found in the entire hotel, no Red Bull. The restaurant was mediocre. We were the last dinners (10pm) and the staff were eager to drag garbage bags through the restaurant and set up breakfast! Not very stylish. The Clarion is good for business visitors in the IFSC but there are better hotels in city centre.

Lovely Hotel but Expensive Breakfast!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Lovely, modern hotel in the new business area of dublin. Rooms v.nice but the twin we had was a bit on the small side - think should have asked for an upgrade like others who have posted here! About 10/15 mins walk into the centre, ok in the summer but not much fun in the rain in january! Leisure club fantastic (except you have to wear a swimming hat in the pool!). Only downside was the price of breakfast - 20 euros - thought this was a bit of a rip off! However just round the corner from the hotel there are lots of bagel shops (never seen so many in one area) and also a marks and spencer food shop. Disn't eat in the hotel restaurant but imagine it was rather expensive too!

fantastic,staff were so helpfull

from shellfromireland
i have just come back from one night stay at the clarion and can easily say it was the best hotel ive ever stayed in ... i was having trouble trying to check in with my visa card, the card company were being awkward and when 2 hours later after a lot of phone calls to them we finally got checked in, when we did the very kind and patient lady working on reception had kindly upgraded our room to the junior deluxe suite!!!

the room was wonderful, so big and spacey, and comfortable,i had a greats night sleep and we had a lovely balcony overlooking the liffey which was lovely in the night time!

was 10 mins walk from the city centre and about 15 mins walk from the point depot where we saw kylie minogue that night!!!!

the leisure facilitys were fabulous! the pool gorgeous ! and all so relaxing!

unfortunatly we didnt eat in the clarion we ate in dublin near the shops whilst shopping!

will return to the clarion on my next visit to dublin... and will try out the restraunt the next time!

Beautiful Hotel

from rabl0nd0n
A 5 day New Year break in Dublin brought us to the wonderful Clarion Hotel. We had been upgraded to a suite (from the family room which we had originally booked), which wasn't quite as large as the extreme wide-angle shots on their website had led us to anticipate but was still incredibly comfortable, stylish and beautiful. We could sit on our sofa enjoying the view over the Liffey (it was sadly too cold to make much use of the excellent balcony) and sipping some very pleasant housewine. The gym and pool are superb, the food ok for Dublin (sorry to sound condescending, but the food in Dublin is generally overcooked and vastly overpriced for what you're getting, a fact that is widely acknowledged in the town itself). A particular joy was the fantastic bed which never troubled my normally very difficult back for a moment. Expensive but worth it.

30th Birthday at the Clarion

from A TripAdvisor Member
We went to this hotel for my husband's 30th birthday, staying from the 14th to the 17th of January. The hotel was brilliant, we were upgraded to a chateau, which meant that we had a bigger room with lounge area and balcony overlooking the river. We had champagne in our room with a fruit basket and a card to my husband written by the hotel manager.
The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the Temple Bar area of the city which was ideal as we were near but not near enough to get all the noise from the nightlife!
If I was ever going back to Dublin I would certainly stay here again.

Not bad

from A TripAdvisor Member
Staff were nice but not the most competent - took them 30 minutes to advise re the airport buses in the early morning. Assuming not many other people have asked this question...

Multiple xmas parties led to lobby crowds, excessive noise (shaking the elevator) and a closed bar. No big deal but would've been appropriate to give patrons a heads up. But would not have wanted to be with kids/family.

Rooms were good size. Walls a bit thin - could hear neighbours (get your mind out of the gutter!!). Not a real double bed but rather 2 singles pushed together.

Located out east. Real east. Need cabs to get to central which does add up. Probably would stay closer to central next time.

Am being a bit harsh as I enjoyed my stay. The hotel was fine but has negatives - location is biggest issue.

Great hotel - thoroughly recommended

from noelphobic
I stayed at the Clarion with my 16 year old son from 6th to 8th November. We arrived around noon but were able to check in immediately. Our room was lovely, very contemporary and minimilist but extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and also lovely. We got a good rate through Last Minute and it was worth every penny. It was about a 10 minute walk from the city centre but I knew this before we went and wanted somewhere quiet so didn't regret that at all.

We had the buffest breakfast in the hotel both days and were extremely pleased with it. We also ate in Kudos one night. The food and service were very good. The only thing I wasn't keen on was that you had a choice of sitting on high stools or low sofas and I would have preferred to sit at a conventional dining table. After all, although the food and drink weren't badly priced it wasn't 'pub gruib'. We used the swimming pool only once but it was very good, swimming caps compulsory though but can be bought there.

We weren't due to catch our flight home until 9pm so had intended to leave our luggage at the hotel and go for some retail therapy. Just as I was asking for directions to a local shopping area I received a phone call from my sister to tell me that my father had died 2 days earlier. He had died on the day we arrived in Dublin which was also my birthday! We were obviously very distressed and all thoughts of shopping were abandoned. I was unable to get an earlier flight and was at a loss as to what we could do for the remaining few hours until we could leave for the airport, especially as we had already checked out of the hotel and had nowhere private to go. One of the hotel staff, to whom I shall be eternally grateful, very kindly arranged for us to have a room for the afternoon at no cost. As I was so upset at the time I didn't take the opportunity to get his name. All I know is that he was foreign, possibly French and his kindness made a distressing time so much easier.

We had a great time in Dublin. Lovely city and people, lovely hotel. I didn't even find it quite as expensive as I'd anticipated. If you're looking for bargains head for Penneys.

Lived up to expectations!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Clarion is a typical businessman's hotel, very clean, smart with good sized rooms and facilities. We arrived early (9 a.m.) for a 2 night stay, were able to check in and leave our cases, no problem, so that we could go and explore Dublin and come back later when the rooms were ready. The reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. We were in a party of 6 and we were all very happy with this choice of hotel. The leisure facilities were good and worth a visit. The breakfast was also good and plentiful, the service efficient. The hotel is a 10 minute brisk walk to Temple Bar but we preferred it's quieter location.

Wonderful time

from shazyhotlips
Well, just back from our 2 night stay in The Clarion. We took our 2 children with us too, and the hotel gave us a spectacular room. It had a dining table, sofa bed and 2 chairs in the living room, also a t.v and HUGE vernada! There was another huge bedroom with t.v, including cartoons. We had a wonderful bathroom with seperate shower. The room really made it for us, as we could all have our own space. We had breakfast, which was shockingly expenxive at 20 euros per adult, but children are free. The breakfast was wonderful though, and there was a fantastic amounts of different foods, from cereal to fresh fruit to scambled eggs. We had our dinner in the restraunt too which was lovely. I would highly recommend it to anyone.....it was only a 10 min walk into the center of town, but away from everything for some peice and quite. You have to go, you will not be dissapointed!

One of best hotels ever stayed in

from stuDurham
clarion hotel is a new modern hotel in the IFSC centre in dublin. the decor is cool and sophisticated with a not too minimalist feel. the rooms are well equipped with good facilities. staff are helpful friendly and attentive without being crowding. the breakfst buffet is fantastic. the hotel has a leisure complex with a fantastic gym (with membershiop available to locals in dublin) and a fantastic pool. the location is looking out onto the liffey and just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. i would definitely return and can not recommend the hotel highly enough.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Expensive Taxis We found that the taxis were expensive, the same trip in two seperate cabs had a price difference of over 10Euros. Maybe get a price first, especially to and from the airport.

Howth Rhododendron If you are interested in botanics and consider the village of Howth as a possible destination for a halfday/daytrip (final destination of the local railway), you should not miss the "Rhododendron hill" near the golf court. Absolutely stunning (In end May-early June when they bloom)!!

From Hotel to Dublin Castle / Temple Bar Area Should run you around 8EU. Be sure to have a game plan of what you want to see before you start wandering around. I wish I would have realized prior to that there was a Hard Rock Cafe in the area and that it would cost to get into both Dublin Castle and Christ Church.
