The most famous city hotel in the country of Ireland, located in the heart of Dublin, overlooking famous St. Stephens Green Park from the front! The hotel looks back of over a century and a half of hospitality and is now run by the upscale Marriott owned brand, Renaissance Hotels and Resorts. The hotel was totally renovated to great expense and it shows. The grand hotel, The Shelbourne today offers superb rooms, dining options and superb rooms to entertain incl. the famous constitution room, in which Ireland was ruled once again independent. The hotel if favoured by the business elite and the famous stars, who are celebrated around the world in tv and media. The hotel is also famous for the afternoon tea served in the Lord Mayors Lounge and should be counted upon as one of the great and grand hotels of Europe. Having all said that, the service sometimes and the high-end quality was lacking in a tone which becomes not a super famous hotel, such as the fabled Shelbourne. Nevertheless, the Shelbourne is one of the great institution of Ireland is now rivaled by Four Seasons, Westin, Fitzwilliam and the Merrion Hotel, all top hotels in Dublin, but not many can boost such an illustrious history as the famous Shelbourne! The Story continues....Dublin in 2008 and many many happy years of hospitality in the long-term future! Thank you, enjoy!!!!
