I was here celebrating with my family. My sister has a lot of allergies and the staff were really accomidating! She RAVED about the gluten free bread & the steak. My grandmother wasn't happy with her choice and they changed it for her without any hassel! Couldn't recommend it more!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and well decorated. One minor point for improvement, the bathroom ceiling was very mouldy, however, this didn't bother us too much and could easily be repaired. The included breakfast was also exceptional. Regrettably, our stay ended on a bad note following a very poor checkout. The staff working at reception when... More

We visited this restaurant last Saturday night, the welcome we got was very warm. the service was excellent and the food was superb. This restaurant is only suitable for people who eat fish, there were 2 steak dishes available and one venison dish other than the vast selection of fish dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This place caught my eye from the street so I popped in for lunch. Was offered a fabulous seat by the window looking into St Stephens Green. Chose the lunch menu which was great value - 2 courses for €23. Really fabulous smoked salmon and horseradish sauce follow by beef bourguignon with a glass of Cote du Rhone. I will... More

We wanted a dinner that would wow our guests & the staff didn't disappoint. Our wait staff were VERY knowledgeable of the wine selection and what would pair nicely with our meal. The starters and mains were superbly done, fish to perfection and the rib eye outstanding. The venue has class and we were able to talk without having to... More

They did a great job catering for a large group of us for 3 courses. Menu was very appetising but heavily weighted towards fish dishes so if you don't like fish you will have limited options. Each of my 3 courses were packed with flavour and very well cooked. Unfortunately my main was a little cold when I got it... More

We came here recently as a family group in the wake of a graduation in the family. So we sat down to dine quite early, at 5.30pm. It's a lovely dining room, overlooking ST Stephens Green. The early bird menu is very good value and from what I could see, the people around us all agreed. Service was attentive, we... More

Location can't be beat, but for a boutique hotel with this rating, we did not have the warm, friendly experience we expected. First issue- lots of steps! There are stairs to the lift, and the lift only goes to 2nd floor, so lots more stairs after that. To top it off, the Lift was out of service when we arrived.... More

What a find! Superb location for Central Dublin, overlooking St Stephens Green(Park). Dawson street fine dining & cocktails 2mins walk, Grafton Street shopping 2mins. Luas (tram) 2mins. A former Victorian Town House still maintains its elegance and charm. The staff are very attentive, the rooms are well appointed, the restaurant is excellent with an Oyster/Cocktail bar.

The Cliff Townhouse is one of my favourite places to eat when I am in Dublin. I have been here a few times now and I just love it. The food, service and value for money is on point. The fish and chips here are the best I have ever had anywhere.... That's really what I go for every time!... More
