The Shelbourne Dublin, 27 St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2

The Shelbourne Dublin – A Renaissance Hotel

Our Stay in Photos

I always feel when passing The Shelbourne that there is something magically glamorous but yet warmly inviting about the hotel. It could be the fact that it’s one of Dublin’s most luxurious Five Star Hotel’s. Maybe it’s because some of the most famous people in the world have stayed there. Or it might be because it is steeped in Irish history, having seen Dublin through the last 191 years. It will most likely see it through another century and more … oh if only its walls could talk!

I shared with you my Afternoon Tea at The Shelbourne experience which takes place in the Lord Mayor’s Lounge but I didn’t share with you my stay there that same day … well I’m about to now and the best way to do that is through photo’s.

Patrick and I stayed at the world-famous hotel last year and although our stay there was short (one night only), there is no denying that it was memorable.

Our Room at The Shelbourne Dublin

The Shelbourne Hotel has 265 rooms including 19 suites. We stayed in the Darrell Figgis Room which is a Heritage One Bedroom Suite that looks out onto Stephen’s Green, or Park View as it’s called at The Shelbourne.

The room included a hallway, living room/sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. It was big and it was beautiful.


The large windows in both the living room and the bedroom looked out onto Stephen’s Green. This south-facing position allowed for the rooms to be filled with plenty of natural light during the day. At night the glow of the street lights could be seen and the hustle and bustle of nightlife imagined.
