Shelbourne Hotel Golf Accomodation Guide

Its history is an inextricable part of Dublin's literary, culinary and artistic tradition. Although The Shelbourne opened its doors as late as 1824, it quickly became the toast of the literati. Joyce couldn't resist mentioning it in his classic, 'Ulysses', Thackeray immortalised it, while Princess Grace, Irving and countless others blessed it with their presence.

Set like a jewel in the centre of busy Dublin, The Shelbourne offers Georgian refinement with peerless views over St. Stephen's Green. The Lord Mayor's Lounge provides the rich backdrop to one of Dublin’s oldest and finest traditions - morning coffee and afternoon tea at The Shelbourne. Private suites are provided for guests to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends in exquisite surroundings and seclusion. The uniquely traditional flavour of the cuisine is matched by the quality of the guest bedrooms and suites.

The historical aspect of the hotel is reinforced by the fact that in 1922, the Irish Constitution was drafted in one of the hotel's function rooms. Since those days the hotel has undergone a full restoration project and is now deservedly known as "The most distinguished address in Ireland".

The classic style of decor and high standards of comfort are often more reminiscent of a stately home than a hotel. But, with the attentive service, you will be able to enjoy the luxury of these elegant surroundings to the full.

ROOMS: 190 luxurious en-suite guestrooms, with 22 suites including the famous "Princess Grace Suite". All are recently refurbished to the highest standards, combining elegance and comfort with all modern amenities.

FACILITIES: Two World Class Restaurants • Health, Fitness & Relaxation Centre • Swimming Pool • Jacuzzi • Steam Room • Beauty Salon • Traditional Gentleman’s Barber
