The 3 Best Things To Do In Dublin


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.
