We had a fabulous stay here this week. The Shelbourne is classy and elegant, yet exudes a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
We had drinks in two of the lobby bars (Horseshoe and No. 27). They each had their own "vibe" and we thoroughly enjoyed both.
Our room was quiet, spacious, and very comfortable. The bathroom had obviously been recently renovated. Great shower.
Staff members are extremely attentive and professional and helpful. Several of them helped me by email months before our arrival and they never tired of my questions. Our requests for various items were met almost immediately. The concierge staff consistently steered us to great pubs and restaurants and made other recommendations. They booked us a wonderful driver/guide to take us on a day trip.
The staff in the Saddle Room greeted us with smiles each morning at breakfast. I loved all the fresh whole fruit that was part of the buffet. You could also order off the menu and be served very quickly. Another food note: my son said the hamburger he got from Room Service was the best one he'd has in his 22 years.
And the location--can't be beat. The Shelbourne is walking distance to Grafton Street, St Stephen's Green, Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc. We even walked to the Guinness Storehouse.
Not sure when we will be back in Dublin, but you can be sure we will stay here.
