The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin

"The Shelbourne Hotel is steeped in Irish history and offers a unique experience for all."

Dublin, Ireland

The Shelbourne Hotel Dublin is part of the Renaissance family. Celebrating almost 200 years of history and tradition, The Shelbourne is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin City and has been lovingly renovated to be the largest 5-star hotel in Dublin, overlooking the city’s grandest square, St. Stephen’s Green. The Shelbourne is located within a few minutes’ walk from Dublin’s most famous landmarks as well as Trinity College and Grafton Street, the most famous shopping street in town, and the vibrant cultural and entertainment areas of the city.

The Shelbourne has for nearly two centuries, played a unique role in the literary, social, political, culinary and artistic life of Irish society. The luxury 5-star hotel is an iconic landmark in Dublin, well known for its fine dining, elegant Afternoon Tea and gracious surroundings and its restaurants are some of the finest in Dublin. The Saddle Room Restaurant is a steakhouse and seafood eaterie serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu is contemporary and also features an Oyster Bar showcasing the best morsels from Carlingford Lough, Lambay and Galway Bay.

The Lord Mayor’s Lounge is Dublin’s most historic Drawing Room, and home to the timeless tradition of Afternoon Tea. The decor is stunning with the color scheme replicating a traditional 19th Century Irish county house crowned with a Waterford Crystal Chandelier. The ambiance is beautifully relaxed, with a pianist entertaining daily and the walls filled with some of Ireland’s rarest paintings loaned from the National Gallery of Ireland nearby.

The 1824 Bar is a stylish and sophisticated setting designed by internationally renowned designer Guy Oliver and overlooks the hotel’s outdoor terrace, while the No.27 Bar & Lounge offers a simple menu with a choice of light dining options and an incredible array of beverages. However, of all the areas in the hotel, it is the Horseshoe Bar, named due to the countertop shape, which gets the most attention. It is a fabulously seductive drinking den, where a good book and a pint of Guinness are superb bedfellows. Almost directly above it, in room 112, the Irish Constitution was drafted in 1922, enshrining this hotels’ place in Irish history.

The Terrace is an inviting outdoor space on the hotel’s mezzanine level. Designed for all year round use, there are umbrellas to shelter from the summer sun and outdoor heaters and a fire pit to snuggle during the colder months. The scene is stunning, with trellised arches made from 19th century cast iron columns, adorning the surrounds.

The Spa offers a range of luxury treatments in one of seven treatment rooms. There is also a Salon for more glamorous therapies for both men and women including hair and beauty preparations. The Health Club offers an excellent range of facilities including a swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym, fitness suite, fitness classes, and a dance studio.

Room types and options are abundantly available with a staggering 265 to choose from. All rooms include an LCD flat-screen television as well as a living area and separate bathroom and are modern with many offering magnificent views across the cityscape.

The Shelbourne Hotel is steeped in Irish history and offers a unique experience for all guests who can now enjoy this restored property in its original splendor. Arguably the most famous address in Dublin city at which to temporarily reside, a visit to The Shelbourne is a must when in Dublin.
