We arrived for a evening out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were upgraded to a King suite. The hotel staff are all excellent and know how to look after you. As they say you only get one chance to make a good impression, this hotel knows how to do that and do it so well. Highly recommended for a special occasion

Outstanding level of service. My first time in Ireland was made all the more special by staying at your stunning hotel. Alan was an absolute delight, every morning helping me plan my day. Afternoon tea was a treasure. I felt like an honored guest for 4 days.
I look forward to staying with you again.

An Oasis in a Storm
Had a sudden trip back to Ireland due to the passing of my Dad. I scrambled at the last minute with Air transportation Hotel arrangements and Covid Tests.
I am so glad that I chose to stay with the amazing caring team at The Shelbourne!
They made me feel at home, comfortable and safe. They handled every aspect of my stay with style and charm. I felt for them as the city was in lockdown and may of the rules I am sure where new to them. They never showed anything but calmness and confidence. As someone who has traveled extensively and have been fortunate to have stayed at many upscale hotels, I can say with surety that the team at The Shelbourne will make you feel that you are their only customer. The location is the best in the city. Grafton Street and Stephens green are footsteps away. The building is stunning yes, however stay for the smiles you will be welcomed with!

Covid Wedding
We would just like to say a huge thank you to all the staff inparticular Lucius the manager who made our stay one to remember. Our wedding was not one we had imagined due to covid restrictions but The Shelbourne went above and beyond for us and we are ever so grateful. Looking forward to returning when all the restrictions lift. Thank you very much. Mr & Mrs.Whelan.

"Beauty and History"
This hotel is stunning in every way. From its very efficient staff to its beautiful interiors, everything about The Shelbourne is first rate! Comfortable rooms, delicious food, several gathering spots for festivities large or small, and a very convenient location make this a must-stay place in Dublin. Ask to see the Constitution Room, where the Republic of Ireland’s Constitution was created.

"Best of the Best"
This is honestly one of the best properties I have ever visited! The room was incredible and overlooking the beautiful St Stephens Green. The location is second to none but what really makes this property so amazing is the highly skilled and courteous staff who honestly can’t do enough for you.

"Great views"
My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on our Irish getaway. It was one of the best hotels we have stayed it. My wife said that if she was going to buy a hotel robe it would be this one, and they had bath salts to soak in after a long day exploring. Our room overlooked the park entrance and it was beautiful. We absolutely will stay here again. It was easy to walk to everything we needed/wanted to see.

"Fabulous hotel!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shelbourne! Everything was top notch. The service is excellent, lobby and bars are just gorgeous, our room was very nice and spacious and quiet! The main restaurant for breakfast and dinner, the Saddle room was our favorite restaurant in Dublin. Breakfast was cooked to order and the Chateaubriand at dinner was outstanding!
I loved the quaintness of the 1827 bar and felt like I was having a cocktail in someone's very nice library at their estate home.
It is in an excellent location and I highly recommend it as an old world fancy hotel with all the modern amenities. Again, the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. I hope to return and stay again.

"Five Star Service!!"
It was not difficult to understand why this hotel is rated Five Stars. Our stay was, by far, the most enjoyable of the three we stayed at during our recent trip to Ireland/England. While our original room (an upgrade) was entirely acceptable in most respects, the HVAC system was not functioning properly, so, we were further upgraded to a suite designed more for royalty than a couple of retirees from the U.S. Thanks to Jason, the transition to the new accommodation was prompt and without effort on our part. Patrick was also helpful in every way. Beyond that, service in the restaurant and lounge was impeccable and all food was wonderfully prepared and delicious. No matter who you talked to on their staff, they were always helpful, friendly and most accommodating.The location is excellent and the role of the hotel in Irish history is well known and most interesting. Upon our return to California, we discovered the hotel has their own series on Netflix! If you want a preview of the kind of excellence they strive for, check it out.
