A beautiful historic property which was recently renovated, this is where you want to stay is you like relaxing with an authentic afternoon tea.

Overview

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's 19 suites are named after famous guests to 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!

  • Good location and lovely hotel. The staff were friendly, our room was large and comfortable and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the breakfast was delicious.

    No free wifi internet in bedrooms patchy wifi in lobby/ and poor service. Broken tv and the small bar should have been for residents only.

  • Convenient in the city and we especially liked the HOHO bus pick up was right across the street. The hotel was very expensive worth every penny, the building was beautiful, and the location was fantastic, the staff were lovely and friendly. The room was excellent, bar was well designed and the food was nice. The gym was good and people in the gym very helpful.

    The public area is too small, tv not working, ordered foam pillows dint arrive also newspaper didnt arrive.
