The Shelbourne Hotel Dublin
The Shelbourne has been Dublin’s premier hotel for more than a century. Originally built in 1824, the hotel has been sympathetically restored in 2007, keeping much of its historic old world charm. The Shelbourne is more than a hotel; it is part of Dublin’s social fabric. From ladies-who-lunch to smart young media folks networking at the hotel’s famous Horseshoe Bar, the Shelbourne provides a stylish backdrop for socialising and business.
The Shelbourne is located on the Northside of St. Stephen’s Green on the corner of Kildare Street. The entrance to leafy St. Stephen’s Green park lies directly across the road from the hotel’s main entrance. Dublin’s premier shopping district Grafton Street is a 5 minutes’ walk away. Many of Dublin’s main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance of the Shelbourne, such as Trinity College, the National Museum Of Ireland – Archaeology, the Science Gallery, and Dublin Castle.

Meeting And Function Rooms
The Shelbourne has 13 meeting rooms which can accommodate events from 12 to 320 delegates. Many of the meeting rooms feature period fireplaces and decor and most rooms benefit from natural daylight. Please contact the hotel for room hire rates.
The public rooms at the Shelbourne are classy and have more character than average hotel bar or restaurant facilities. Whether you prefer the bling of the Horseshoe Bar or the discreet charm of afternoon tea in the Lord Mayor’s Lounge, the Shelbourne does what it does well. The Shelbourne is the only hotel in Dublin to offer a genealogy service for hotel guests who would like to trace their Irish ancestors. Bedrooms are well appointed but relatively small by today’s standards. It is worth paying the extra for a larger room with park view. Bedrooms have high speed WiFi Internet access, which will be charged separately. All bedrooms feature 32” LCD flat screen TVs, CD stereo systems and marble bathrooms.
How To Get To The Shelbourne
A taxi from Dublin airport will take you to the Shelbourne in about 35 minutes, pending traffic. Expect to pay approximately €35.00 for a single journey.
