heavy day shopping? Still a couple of notes still in the wallet or purse? Take yourself off to the bar at the Shelbourne and order a drink at the corner bar. Blink as the bill arrives and then enjoy looking at Dublin's finest as they unwind after a hard day. Real money here, folks, and don't you soon know it... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Shelbourne. Excellent hotel. Great location, really great hotel design and facilities. Staff very helpful. Definitely 5 start. A bit pricey so worth noting but worth it. No 27 bar is great and very open , bright. If staying some great bars on Dawson street if not into the standard more hassle of temple bar... More

I did a ton of research before booking this hotel and was so impressed with how true many of these reviews turned out to be. This hotel is worth the price if you are looking for a bit of luxury during your stay. We were able to check in early and found the concierge to be very helpful with booking... More

What I enjoyed the most was the can-do attitude of the entire staff. They were amenable to any request and happy to assist. I found this to be true of the Irish people in general but when paired with a great location and lovely, comfortable rooms it was just the touch of old world charm to make a quick trip... More

The hotel is located in the best location, was so beautiful and the room had great amenities. We were on vacation from the States, and weren't in the hotel much, but loved every second we were there. The guest room and bath were both spacious (we had a quad for a family of four). The bed was so comfortable, and... More

We stayed for one night at the end of our one week Ireland trip. We visited Ireland last year as well and spent more time in Dublin, but since we were flying out of Dublin, we needed one day in the city. We enjoyed the cocktails in the lounge as well as the helpful and friendly valet staff. Also, the... More

We were a family/group of 8 people who spent Christmas Day (2013) in the Shelbourne. It was my idea and I feel responsible for us booking this reknowned establishment in Dublin. The food was lovely, the waiting staff were excellent. Unfortunately we were given the worst table in the restaurant which meant we had to split up (there was a... More

The Shelbourne is a luxurious hotel with an exceptional location. Being a 5-star hotel my husband and I had very high expectations to our 2-nights-stay in Dublin. They were honored in regards to location, servicelevel - the staff did everything and more so that we would have a great stay - food (restaurant and afternoon tea) and spa. Unfortunately our... More

This iconic Hotel is in the heat of the action in Dublin. You are within walking distance from most everything and this is "the place to be" for local business people who meet for lunch and in droves on Friday night in the two bars. The rooms are spacious and the beds super comfortable. . Dennis O'Brien, the concierge really... More

My sister (who lives in Canada) and I met in Dublin to celebrate her special birthday. We didn't stay at the hotel but I pre-booked Afternoon Tea for 6 of us. It was the Best afternoon tea I have ever had (and that includes hotels in London famous for this). The food was brilliant. We didn't need dinner that night!... More

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
