Clayton Hotel, Ballsbridge
This 4-star hotel is something of a historical landmark. Housed in an iconic Victorian building and former site of an 18th-century Masonic school, it has since become a standard bearer in fine dining and hospitality. The exhibition space, Thomas Prior Hall, once served as chapel to the adjoining school and has recently been restored, retaining most of its original features.
The Clayton Hotel, Ballsbridge also offers a wide variety of dining experiences, from its casual self-service style cafe with conservatory-style glass ceiling, to fine dining in the hotel restaurant, or the cosy booths of the Brasserie for something in between. The hotel is conveniently located just 5 minutes’ walk from Sandymount DART station and only 2 minutes’ walk from the RDS Arena.
