The Shelbourne is a beautiful and historical property in the center of Dublin with a vast selection of rooms and suites. Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne reflects the nostalgia of the past and many of the rooms and suites are named in honor of former guests.
This elegant property is a landmark in Dublin. The Shelbourne has played a significant role in the literary, social, political, culinary, and artistic traditions of Irish society. Among them, the drafting of the 1922 Irish constitution took place here. The Constitution Suite immortalizes the event and one of the two original copies is kept at the hotel.
Rooms are a contemporary take on the luxury of the past. Look out to St. Stephen’s Green, the city’s grandest square, from the Heritage Park View rooms.
