About The Hotel

There were a lot of lost sheep wandering around Dublin for the year or so that The Shelbourne Hotel was closed undergoing total refurbishment before re-opening last year as a shining light – a Renaissance Hotel – the elite Marriott branding. Arguably Ireland’s most famous hotel, it is regarded as a national treasure and very much part of the fabric of Dublin social life. It’s famous Horseshoe Bar has been party to many a State secret, not to mention many a grand affair. Everybody who is anybody has walked through the Shelbourne doors from Princess Grace to Pearse Brosnan but then it’s the sort of place that movies are made of. The Irish Constitution was drafted here under our hero Michael Collins…..there is just so much history and style within its four walls. Naturally over the years, it has had a series of ownerships – some good – some not great- but now our national treasure is owned by a group of Irish Businessmen and Hoteliers with a wealth of experience and, even more importantly, understanding of what The Shelbourne is all about in the fabric of Irish life.

Built in 1824, The Shelbourne, is located right on St. Stephen’s Green, in the heart of all the upmarket City activity, the best shops, wine bars, restaurants, that is if you can bear to drag yourself out of the Shelbourne at all in case you miss anything! Millions have been spent on what is now, The Shelbourne Dublin A Renaissance Hotel, bringing it up to date yet retaining all the graciousness and elegance of past times – luxurious fabrics – marble bathrooms – it’s a joy.

When you have dropped off your luggage and been wowed by your bedroom, head straight down to the new No. 27 Bar and after a pint of J. Arthur Guinness or a glass of champagne, you will being to feel like one of us! They also do a great value casual menu in the No. 27 – lots of Irish staples like Bacon and Cabbage or Irish Stew. Back in the 70’s one of the most popular places to eat in Dublin was The Saddle Room at the Shelbourne and I am delighted to say that the new Saddle Room and Oyster Bar is even better. A steak and seafood menu, just think of chomping your way through a delicious Seafood Platter with lobster, jumbo prawns, oysters and Seviche. I have had the Oysters Rockefeller and the crab cakes, as well as the grilled black sole with caper, lemon and dill, not to mention the 10 oz tenderloins whilst my better half would kill for their 18oz T’bones. Do make your dinner reservation when booking because this is a busy place.

As for breakfast at the saddle room with its open kitchen…..there is an enormous buffet selection or you can just order from the a la carte breakfast menu ….if you are really hungry you can even have Eggs Shelbourne…..farm fresh organic poached eggs and grilled Irish fillet of beef on sourdough muffin with sauce Bearnaise and potato hash……now that should keep you going for a while…..

The Shelbourne…it’s the ultimate Grand City Hotel - a one off
