Shelbourne Hotel

Last updated: 23 December, 2023

The Shelbourne has been setting Dublin’s five-star standard for more than two centuries, transporting you to a world of opulence and glamour – whether sipping drinks in the electric cocktail bar or indulging in perfect steaks in the Saddle Room.

A long list of iconic guests include John and Jacqueline Kennedy in 1958, with JFK returning as US President in 1963. Ask to visit the Constitution Room, where the Irish Constitution was signed in 1922, with replicas on show of the original document.

The hotel manages to be distinguished, elegant and fun all at the same time, and appeals to all ages.

Surrounding area

On the busy main thoroughfare running south from Grafton Street, you can walk to the heart of the shopping district in five minutes, or skip across the road to Stephen’s Green to escape the crowds and enjoy a walk/picnic by the lake.

The street is lined with historic Georgian buildings so is aesthetically appealing and you’ll find lots of interesting bars and restaurants.
