First night we were In very small rooms. We also had requested adjoining rooms and didn't get them. There was a constant humming noice in the room as well which left us with little too no sleep. However when I spoke with the staff about this the next day they very quickly rectified the situation by moving us too more spacious adjoining rooms.

Excellent hotel

Pros: The hotel was clean, beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful.i have wanted to stay here since visiting for afternoon tea as a child!
Cons: Our room (465) was near an AC system - it was quite noisy, but as we weren't overloooking the street it was otherwise quiet- not a great view!!!
Location: Excellent location, we know Dublin well and it was so nice to be in the heart of the city. A quick stroll to Trinity, Stephen's Green and Graftin St
Staff were so friendly and helpful- especially valet parking, helping me unload bags and get settled into our room. We travelled with a baby and everyone was so considerate and helpful with him. The room had everything you could want- iron, hairdryer, tea and coffee and lovely toiletries in the bathroom. Everything was spotless.

A Special Family treat

This was a Christmas treat for myself and my 11 yr old twin daughters and 12 yr old Goddaughter - a trip to Dublin combining the Xfactor live tour in the 3 arena. Staying in the Shelbourne made it the most special adventure imaginable. I believe the kids will be telling their grandchildren about it in many years to come. The staff treated us so wonderfully. The breakfast was a banquet of delights. A swim in the lovely leisure centre pool was an added treat. Thank you!

Romantic over night stay!

Really enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. We were made feel special from the moment we pulled up outside. The valet parking took all the stress out of finding somewhere to park in a very busy Dublin city centre! The welcome inside was professional but warm! The bedroom was lovely and bed very comfortable. We stay in five star hotels quite a lot. This hotel was the first we've stayed at in a long time, that really lived up to its five star rating!

Great family stay

There were a couple of issues with the room we were allocated initially, however the staff resolved them in a timely, professional and friendly fashion. Overall the stay was great. I would like to stay again when next time coming to Dublin.
