The Shelbourne Hotel
The Shelbourne Hotelreopened in March 2007 after an extensive 2-year renovation, is Dublin,Ireland's largest five-star luxury hotel with 265 guestrooms including 19 suites, and is centrally located across from St. Stephen's Green.
Originally built in 1824, The Shelbourne Hotel has kept the feel of the architecture with soaring ceilings with a bit of modern enhancement including the 24-carat golf leaf ceiling in the lobby and mezzanine. Past guests of The Shelbourne Hotel will be pleased to know that although the hotel has made some changes, the Lord Mayor's Lounge and The Horsehoe Bar remain and have been lovingly restored.
Edward F. Nesta and I stayed at The Shelbourne Hotel in September 2007, and during our stay we had coffee in the Lord Mayor's Lounge where ornate details included intricate moldings and crystal chandeliers setting the ambience of the room.
We also had drinks in the Number 27 Bar and Lounge, new since the renovation, and has already established itself as the spot to be seen, as fashionable Dubliners came in to indulge in a glass or two of wine or their favorite cocktails.
The hotel has a new restaurant, The Saddle Room, where Executive Head Chef John Mooney creates modern cuisine with a steak and seafood theme, and also features an oyster bar where guests can enjoy
