4.3

Savour exquisite food in an elegant Georgian guest house opposite Dublin’s Stephen’s Green.

The Cliff Town House offers a homely, romantic setting in a historical building that delivers elegant dining and superb food in a central location. The restaurant and bar are of such a standard that they operate smoothly without the support of the guest house – this used to be Bentley’s restaurant and the reputation of this excellent establishment endures. You’ll find that the nine charming bedrooms at this guest house are often booked out, usually with returning guests.

Location

Extremely central, opposite St. Stephen’s Green and around the corner from Grafton Street.

Bedrooms

The nine quaint, homely but luxurious bedrooms are a home from home. Rooms are compact with a neutral colour scheme - beige, cream or brown - dotted with splashes of purple and red, plus original oils and prints on walls. Traditional and antique furniture is in keeping with the age of the building. 

 

Public areas

It’s a guest house so public areas areas are limited. Apart from the bar and restaurant, there’s a private dining room upstairs for groups.

Eating and drinking

The chef who designed the dishes here has been awarded four Michelin stars so the food is top notch and great value at 25 euros for a three-course set lunch menu or 40 euros for dinner. There’s also an oyster bar at the back serving great cocktails, or beer. The restaurant setting is ultra modern and opulent with tables set out with great attention to detail on crisp white linen tablecloths.

Service

Impeccable service and particular attention to detail. Super-friendly.
