The room was lovely and the breakfast was superb. What really stood out for me was the friendliness and helpfulness. Big call out to the engineer who came to check the aircon in our room - he was extremely helpful.

A truly classy experience. One simply enjoys a classic venue, soft live music and a most tasty series of options for the High Tea. I have been here before years ago and the standard has remained the same throughout time. Staff are attentive to needs and the venue itself, just off the main entry foyer is relatively intimate seating only...

Never fail to fall in love with The Shelbourne every time I visit. Third time we've treated ourselves to staying overnight and it could not have been more enjoyable. From the moment we arrived each and every staff member treated us like the only guests there, so friendly and helpful, especially the barmen and concierge. The whole hotel is always...

Overlooking St Stephens Green, the hotel is close to the shopping centres of Grafton Street and its surrounds. Trinity College and other major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Amenities are to the expected high standards : two elegant fine dining restaurants; lively bars; a pool, fitness centre and a spa. The bedrooms are clean and with adequate storage space,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night break in the Shelbourne. It is so luxurious and is a real escape. Our room had been recently renovated and it was very tastefully decorated. We loved looking out onto Stephen's Green. The bathroom was beautiful, with plenty of toiletries provided. But the bed was the real star! Best mattress ever, unbelievably comfortable. One small...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The world famous Shelbourne Hotel is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin. Located only 9km from Dublin Airport, The Shelbourne overlooks the magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, and is just seconds from the city’s sights and shops, commerce and culture. But the connection to Ireland’s capital runs far deeper than location. Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne, a Renaissance Hotel is a place where history has been made – the Irish Constitution was drafted, literary masterpieces were penned and society was shaped. Today, as part of the worldwide Renaissance brand, the hotel has been dramatically restored to its full original splendour. Each of the 265 bedrooms are unique, but they all share a sense of charm, style and above all quality…100% Egyptian cotton bedding by Rivolta Carmignani, elegant marble bathrooms with luxury amenities, flat-screen televisions, high speed internet access and climate control. The Shelbourne has 19 beautifully appointed suites, 12 of which are named after famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, such as Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy and Michael Collins and Eamonn De Valera. At the very heart of Dublin’s very best times for almost 200 years, The Shelbourne continues to be the city’s favourite hotel for fine food and drinks in an incomparable environment for generations of Dubliners. The Shelbourne offers a superb choice of dining venues; The Saddle Room, a modern steak and seafood restaurant, The Lord Mayor’s Lounge which serves Dublin’s only true afternoon tea, the renowned Horseshoe Bar and No. 27 Bar & Lounge, the place to see and be seen in Dublin! The hotel features a luxurious Spa offering six treatment rooms, including a suite for two people to share their spa experience together, a manicure and pedicure area as well as an opulent relaxation room. A 17.5m swimming pool, thermal facilities, dance studio and state-of-the-art gymnasium complete the facilities. ... more   less
