I have stayed at The Shelbourne several times over the last 25 years & have never been disappointed. I have stayed at most of Dublin's five star hotels but nothing comes near this. The location is perfect & there is always a buzz about the place. On a 3 day visit this week we were upgraded (without asking) to a Heritage Suite. It was amazing with beautiful views over St. Stephens Green & the Dublin Mountains. If you want to treat yourself to a little bit of old style luxury this is the place! The food is fabulous. We had breakfast in our suite each morning & had supper each evening in the Lord Mayors Lounge where there is a wonderful light supper menu. Don't be put off by negative reviews this place is still No.1 in Dublin. Looking forward to my next visit at Easter.
