The 3 Best Things To Do In Dublin

THE SHELBOURNE HOTEL

This grand red brick edifice has seen almost two centuries of Irish history saunter through its corridors, and remains the epitome of Dublin luxury.

A traditional haunt for the literati, the hotel was a favorite of William Thackeray and Elizabeth Bowen, and many a famous wordsmith has reposed on its sofas since. The Constitution of the Irish Free State was drafted in a Shelbourne suite in 1922 and to this day political heavyweights sojourn here for matters of state or just a pint and a chat. The hotel stands on St. Stephen’s Green, a lush inner city park fringed with handsome Georgian buildings, and a recent renovation has added several international awards to the Shelbourne’s ever-stellar reputation.
