The breakfast team are absolutely wonderful, They are the most friendly I have seen in a hotel, Ana, Vanessa, Antoine, Paul, just to mention, but a few. Overall, we had an amazing experience.

The public areas of the Shelbourne Hotel really have the wow factor, everything is so stunning. The location is perfect for anywhere in Dublin city. Really the best thing in the hotel are the staff, without exception everyone we met was just fantastic, really on the ball ensuring everyone was well looked after. Breakfast was amazing, one of the nicest I have ever had. The only negative was the actual bedroom which was awful. Tiny bedroom, tiny bathroom, shabby furniture and a horrendous smell in the room that seemed to be coming from a drain. We only stayed 1 night so didn’t make an issue of it but it was pretty bad. This room type is flagged on their website as a ‘small room’ so choose a different room type if at all possible.

We were part of a large group that began wedding festivities in Dublin before leaving for the countryside. The staff at The Shelbourne are top notch...Irish hospitality at its best!! The beds were extremely comfortable. The common areas are stunning. The breakfast was delicious. No request was too difficult. We had a wonderful welcome dinner in the St.Stephen suite with outstanding service and food. There is no better place to stay. It was so convenient to walk to Grafton or St. Stephens green or the national gallery.

What a fabulous hotel The Shelbourne is and now rates as one of my all time favourites. From the minute you are greeted at the door you know you are in for a treat. The pros Every single member of staff we met was warm, welcoming, friendly and super helpful. The rooms are super comfy, spacious and clean. You have to sample the afternoon tea! I've had a few over the years but this was the best by a country mile and our server was amazing, very attentive and friendly. Really close to the city centre. We ate both breakfast and dinner in the hotel, the food is out of this world, tasty, hot and always well presented. The cons None, not one! Thank you to everyone at The Shelbourne, you made our break special! We'll be back.

My wife and I experienced an excellent lunch. All staff we spoke to were welcoming and attentive. The ambience was grand, as expected of a renowned hotel. The 3 course lunch was superb. We will return when in Dublin.

Me and my mother stayed for mothers day, I accidentally booked a King room but the helpful Adam on the front desk despite my mistake found a twin room for us and even gave us a complimentary upgrade to a room with a fantastic view overlooking Stephens green, He was welcoming and friendly and truly made us feel at home, making mothers day extra special for my mother, The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the room was immaculately clean, The breakfast was delicious the next morning with the friendliest staff, I can't wait to stay again in the near future, Thank you very much to the Shelbourne team!

I was in on Sunday just passed and was having a good day out, but it was made even better by the service we received from Luke and Bradley on the bar. Lads were excellent, knowledgeable, and professional. Kept everyone at the bar well stocked and they were more than helpful to give some insight and suggestions for great drinks. Lads are a credit to the staff.

I really had high hopes for this hotel as it came highly recommended, but sadly very underwhelmed.There were a number of things which didn’t make my experience a great one. Before I start, the biggest disappointment among other things was the food; especially the indoor dining. The selection was very poor (soup / salad / sandwich or burger!) There was no diversity offered in the in room dining service. Restaurant were quite ‘samey’ and often times had dress codes which isn’t something convenient when you are travelling with work. They didn’t make ordering in room dining easy at all for the customer as they had their menus in the TV. For someone who isn’t technologically savvy, this would have found it terribly frustrating and daunting. I get that this might have a more environmentally friendly way of offering room dining but the experience was cumbersome, selection was poor and I didn’t even bother after many failed attempts. Other things that frustrated me: 1. The room they put me in was TINY, it smelt very musty, decor very dated (I get they want to go with a heritage feel but it was more like an retirement home feel) 2. The sink area in the bathroom was so small you couldn’t properly brush your teeth or wash your face without having water getting everywhere. There was literally no countertop room. 3. The kettle was not emptied properly and had water left from the previous guest 4. Lightbulbs were flickering 5. I asked to be moved to a different room as i was staying int he hotel for 5 nights so to their credit, they put me into different room which thankfully was much bigger but it was a twin room with two beds - there was just one of me. When I asked for a double bed they said I can either go back to the tiny room with a big bed or stay in the big room with small two beds, or pay extra €50 per night to get a double bed in a bigger room - not a great experiences 6. Staff were not very attentive - for example I asked for a coffee mug because the cups they offered in the room were so fine the coffee bags didn’t fit. They said they need 45 mins to go and find a coffee cup to send up to my room - and it never arrived. All these experiences combined I found it quite an underwhelming stay. This is such a shame as I really wanted to like this experience at the Shelbourne, but I think I might try a different hotel. next time.
