The Shelbourne is one of the Grand Old establishments in Dublin and it has witnessed history and history makers in all it years across from St. Stephens Green. From its fine dining, snug pub, oyster bar, and renowned High Tea, this hotel just exudes old world class and charm but with its association with Renaissance/Marriott it also has all of the amenities that we Americans in particular come to look for. Best by far is its location! Around the corner is Trinity College and The Museum of Archeology. Down the road is Grafton Street and shopping. Down the other way is the National Library and the government offices. All around are great restaurants like Pearl and Bang. Short walks to O'Connell st, Temple Bar, The Liffey and its bridges and just a ton of fun. Not to me missed is the Dawson Lounge, literally around the corner from the hotel that is billed a the world's smallest bar. Its is and you cant help making friends. Down the other way is a true Irish Pub called Donahue's that jumps till closing. It makes a huge difference after slow walking through sites like Kilmainham and the National Gallery to be so close to comfort and relaxation, and after one to many at the pub, knowing you could crawl home if needed was a blessing. Hotel is beautifully maintained, has a helpful and friendly staff who, btw, found my memory card on the floor when I left and mailed it back to me so I didnt lose some cherished memories. I'm going back soon!
- 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.
