I stayed at the Shelbourne while in Dublin for a business trip. It's a very nice historic hotel that has modernized its rooms. One of the most frustrating items for me in European bathrooms is the partial glass wall as the enclosure for the shower, rather than a shower curtain or sliding door. My bathroom at the Shelbourne was great, in that it had a full sliding door for the shower and a lovely vessel sink. The room is definitely small, but if you're just sleeping there, it shouldn't be a problem.
The artwork throughout the hotel is lovely.
The location is also very convenient for shopping on Grafton Street.
The cost for connecting to the Internet is a bit steep.
Because of my busy schedule whilst in Dublin, I did not have a chance to check out the bar or restaurants at the hotel. I ordered room service on my first night there and it was quick. The food was ok, but I generally find the food in Ireland to not be overally interesting.
I spend approximately 3-4 weeks in Dublin each year, and so far, this has been the nicest hotel I've stayed in.More
