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, 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!
