Exceptional hotel in downtown Dublin. The hotel's interior is a very nice blend of modern and antique. They were in the process of remodeling the sitting area directly inside the lobby when I arrived. The next morning that same area was completed with new carpet and furniture.
We actually stayed in two different rooms during our time in Dublin. The first room at the beginning of the trip was spacious and well appointed with many useful amenities to the traveler (i.e. in room blow dryer (no need to use converter), and 110 volt adapters built-in). When we returned to Dublin at the end of our trip there was some confusion over our reservation. The front desk was very pleasant to work with and actually upgraded our room for the inconvenience. We were placed in a top floor room with floor to ceiling windows along the length of the room. While it wasn't as spacious as the first room, the view was worth the sacrifice.
The staff were very friendly and curtious--always willing to assist with directions and suggestions. The hotel is in excellent proximity to most of the Dublin "tourist" attractions. St. Stephen's Green is directly across the street and a 1-2 minute walk will take you to Grafton Street. A 10 minute walk will get you to St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Trinity College or Christ's Church. An excellent choice when adventuring in Dublin!!
- 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.
