We enjoyed dinner at The Saddle Room where a few of our selections included Pan Seared Foie Gras, Caramelized with Drunken Cherries and Toasted Almonds; Crab Cakes, Roasted Pepper, Basil and Lemon Mustard Aioli; and Roast Rack of Wicklow Lamb, Potato Gratin and a Mustard Crust.
Our guestroom featured a king bed with wood headboard that was sumptuously dressed with a cream and yellow floral pattern bedspread, decorative pillows, and Italian linens. Nightstands on either side of the bed held tall lamps with cream lampshades, and paintings graced the walls. Rust and yellow striped floor to ceiling and ivory sheer window treatments framed the wide window.
A mirror hung over the desk set against the wall opposite the bed, and a rust and yellow striped chair flanked a small round wood table that held a fruit plate, chocolates, and a selection of magazines. Amenities included a mini-bar, Philips CD/Clock Radio, Philips HD television, Internet access via a cable for a fee, and complimentary newspapers delivered to the room.
The closets held robes and slippers, an umbrella, iron and ironing board, and a safe. The marble bathroom featured a combination shower/tub, double sinks, vanity mirror, hairdryer, and The White Company amenities.
The hotel is filled with lovely surprises, including the attractive stained glass ceiling in the reception and the daily treats to satisfy the sweet tooth. During our stay we sampled their delicious Lemon Cake and also Milk Chocolate Brownies with Pistachio Nuts, and were pleased that the hotel had also included the recipes so that guests could take home a taste of The Shelbourne Hotel.
To leave you with a sweet taste of The Shelbourne Hotel, I have included the recipe for Milk Chocolate Brownies with Pistachio Nuts.
