My wife and I stayed for one night recently (Saturday, 19th November), as part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations. The entire experience from check-in to check-out was faultless, with the service, the room, and the facilities all exceeding our expectations.
One of the really nice touches was the provision of a bottle of wine and two glasses "on the house" laid out for us in the room. Also, the bed was carefully decorated with red rose petals!
Our room was bigger than expected, very tastefully furnished, with the bonus feature of a balcony with views of the Dublin mountains above the city sky-line.
Because of the occasion, we were not overly concerned with the rate, so we pushed the boat out in that sense. Therefore "value for money" was not a prime consideration. We paid more than we would normally would for good city-centre accommodation and in hind-sight we were certainly not disappointed.
- 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.
