Twice. My husband also worked there for a few months.

Also used to drink there a few days a week (the barman was a great laugh).

Saw some interesting people hanging around.

Agreed. Brekkie is brilliant.

I took pix of my DD at the front door, walked in and studdered all over the people at the front desk. We walked down the hall to look at the menu (the prices!) and slunk out the back door.

Does that count? Is there a shame-faced emoticon?

Why is that sad? This is a U2 board.

Also, the Clarence is an enormously expensive hotel. I doubt most people would spend that kind of money unless there were a pretty compelling reason.

I'm sure if they were worried about it, they wouldn't have bought a hotel in the first place.....

I hope to visit there sometime soon too....

I have stayed in a few of the other top hotels in Dublin and happen to find the Clarence is to my taste.

My husband also used to go in there way before U2 ever owned it

I can't afford it so I'll never go, but I don't really think U2 would care. It seems they haven't even been breaking even on the place and hey, at least the fans are spending money there...

I went by the Clarence several times when I was in Dublin last fall. Didn't seem like there was much going on.

Liverpool now has a Beatles hotel. A Hard Days Night Hotel its called, Ive never stayed there but Ive had a coffee in their bar. Its really, really nice. And even though its a 5 star, the bar prices were pretty reasonable.

Wonder if they'll ever do a U2 hotel?

I stayed there for one night 2 years ago. Loved the breakfast! Aaaand- we had the best view over Dublin from a hotel room ever



Well, hotels in Dublin are too expensive anyway... I think we payed about 30 Euros more p.p than we would have payed in another (3 star) hotel. Well, it was worth it anyway.

I've stayed there a lot, 3 days for my birthday, 2 that one time I didn't want to leave Dublin, and 2 when I left Dublin first time, and 2 when I left Dublin last time. A friend of mine worked in the bar for 2 years. I made friends with her because I was there so often. So many memories there. It is such a wonderful place. The ambiance is just amazing.
