The Shelbourne Dublin, A Renaissance Hotel | Discover Renaissance Hotels

Visit our Genealogy Butler to trace your Irish ancestry.

Founded nearly 200 years ago in 1824, The Shelbourne Dublin is a historic hotel in the truest sense of the word. Within these walls, literary masterpieces were written, the Irish constitution was drafted, and some of the most famous names in European history rested their heads. Now, all of this history comes complete with the impeccable service and beautiful design you’d expect from a Renaissance hotel. With an incredible array of world-class dining options and the renowned Horseshoe Bar, you’ll never lack somewhere to eat or drink. Although we’re a landmark in our own right, we’re also on the doorstep of many of Dublin’s must-see attractions, and friendly local Navigator Eamonn will guide you through the best of them. He can also tell you where to find the perfect pint of Guinness!
