The Shelbourne Hotel is a beautiful building in an excellent location right across from the beautiful park, St. Stephen's Green. Breakfast was not included in our rate and after seeing the cost, which was 21 euro for the cold buffet and 29 euro for the full buffet, we opted to walk just down the street to the St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre where we had a wonderful breakfast at Kylemore on the 2nd floor overlooking the park at a great price (around 10 to 15 Euro for 2 people depending on your selection). We could walk to the Temple Bar area in about 15 to 20 minutes and Grafton Street is right around the corner. We traveled in Ireland for 15 days staying in 9 different places and I do have to say that the bed in the Shelbourne was absolutely the most comfortable in all of Ireland. I would without a doubt stay here again. To sum it up....Great Location, Great Historic Building, and WONDERFUL BED!!
- 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
