The Shelbourne Dublin

The Irish Constitution was drafted here and the recent brief closure of this opulent 18th-century hotel overlooking St Stephen's Green (Europe's largest garden square) has served as a reminder to Dubliners that it is still central to life in the city today.

Ranking among the world’s great hotels, this wedding venues emerged from its recent restoration and refurbishment with all the old grandeur intact, and the entrance creates an even stronger impression since the lift has been relocated to allow the original staircase to take pride of place once again in the magnificent faux-marble entrance hall – now also enhanced by the creation of a new reception area.

The Lord Mayor's Lounge - always a popular meeting place for Afternoon Tea - was treated with a light hand in the renovation and the famous Horseshoe Bar, renowned as a meeting place for local politicians and theatrical society and nothing short of a Dublin institution, was taken back to its old Sam Stephenson designed interior.

New rooms added at the back of the hotel have increased the accommodation, and all are luxurious - but the older suites, named after famous people who have stayed there in the past, have all been refurbished to bring back the original glamour, and are very much in demand. Dining choices are between the stylish, No. 27 Bar & Lounge, and the opulent Saddle Room restaurant.

The hotel is in great demand for events and meetings, with a number of restored meeting/private dining rooms in the main building available, including The Constitution Room and The George Moore Suite - and also the state-of-the-art Great Room next door, for larger events.
