Cliff Townhouse

Cliff Townhouse

Dublin, Ireland

Superbly situated at the foot of St Stephen’s Green, the Cliff Townhouse is a Georgian townhouse located just a few minutes away from Dublin’s main attractions.

This intimate hotel has just nine luxurious guest rooms and exudes the feeling of an elegant family home rather than a hotel. All rooms are individually decorated in soothing cream hues with splashes of color in the tartan carpets and plush headboards. Guest rooms feature large windows that flood the space with natural light and offer views of either St Stephen’s Pond or the Lancaster House. All are outfitted with an original marble fireplace, as well as Georgian antiques, and feature a traditional, Donegal tweed blanket. Other amenities include a spacious, marble bathroom, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a nightly turndown service.

A highlight of any stay at the Cliff Townhouse is the exquisite cuisine. Both cold and hot cooked to order breakfast items are available in the morning as well as a fresh seafood menu at lunchtime and in the evening in the hotel’s stylish, wood-paneled restaurant. For a lighter fare dine at the marble-topped Oyster & Champagne Bar or sample tapas and cocktails in the vibrant, beach themed Urchin Bar.


This hotel is excellent for guests that want to retire to a quiet retreat, while still being located in the heart of the city. We particularly love this boutique property’s tasteful nods to traditional Irish culture, such as the Donegal tweed blankets and tartan carpets found in the bedrooms.

The Cliff Townhouse is a boutique hotel with just nine guest rooms. As the hotel is set within a Georgian townhouse all rooms are different sizes and individually decorated; however, they all offer the warmth of an elegant family home. Parkview rooms are outfitted with large windows that offer plenty of natural light and views of St Stephen’s Pond, while the slightly smaller townhouse rooms overlook Lancaster House. All rooms are adorned in soothing cream hues offset by vibrant tartan carpets and velvet headboards. Additional features include Georgian antiques, a spacious bathroom, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a nightly turndown service.


Situated in the heart of Dublin’s fashionable Georgian district, the Cliff Townhouse is mere steps away from several of Dublin’s main attractions. Leafy St Stephen’s Green is located directly opposite from the hotel, while Trinity College and the boutique shops of pedestrianized Grafton Street are only a ten-minute walk away.

Food and drink

Breakfast is served in the hotel’s wood-paneled restaurant and consists of both a cold buffet and cooked to order items. Later, the restaurant transforms to a chic seafood eatery and sophisticated Oyster & Champagne Bar, serving the finest, fresh seafood that Dublin has to offer in a chic setting. Tasty tapas and cocktails are also available in the casual, beach themed Urchin Bar.
