We have been traveling around Europe for 6 weeks. We have been busy and have seen much. We were also fatigued - staying on many different accommodation, comfort was variable. As a last minute indulgence to test, recover and regenerate, we booked into the Shelbourne. We enjoyed our stay very much and the level of comfort was very highly valued.

Now this is something because we arrived after like endless hours of travel and I was pretty cranky. The front desk processed us quickly and efficiently and staff were the most consistently welcoming across the boards of any of the accommodations we experienced on this trip. The rooms are a bit small (by American standards) which was anticipated but everything... More

nice hotel, very elegant. The service here is excellent. The room we had was a little small and the air conditioning was virtually non existent, but nicely furnished. I would stay again as the location and the service made up for any shortfalls.

I stayed at The Shelbourne Dublin for 3 nights with my family and I could not be more impressed how they run the hotel. The suite was classic, clean and had a specific charm that made it unique. Breakfast each morning was so good and we all looked forward to starting our day in the hotel restaurant. The service was... More

I have to start by saying absolutely everyone at some point in their life should experience afternoon tea here at the Shelbourne. Came here for afternoon tea to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and it was such a treat. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. The afternoon tea is themed and this one was Alice in Wonderland... More

The location is right across the street from a beautiful park and a few blocks away from a great shopping and eating area. Our meals in the hotel we excellent, the bar is cozy with a larger space available... More

The Shelbourne is an ideal place to stay when visiting Dublin. Not only is it extremely central which makes exploring on foot the obvious option, but it offers everything you need for a city break - comfortable rooms, friendly staff and an interesting history. We stayed for two nights and I would happily have stayed for longer. Our room was... 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
