We have stayed for a romantic weekend at the famous The Shelbourne, A Renaissance Hotel in Dublin, located on St. Stephens Green, Europe's largest inner city park. A wonderful hotel with grand history and fully restored for a great future too. Check-in was very friendly and very warm towards us. All requests had been fulfilled at this property from a feather free Junior Suite to access to the Heritage Lounge, which operates full only during the week but offers free water and complimentary wifi internet access during the weekend too. A great bonus, we shall not forget the fabulous views here too. Our Junior suite was immaculate, as part of our Romance package we have received strawberries dipped in chocolate and a full bottle of Piper Heidsick champagne and wonderful designer flutes to go with. Beautiful presentation and friendly service indeed. Our Junior Suite overlooked the park, great views over the hustle and bustle outside, we heard no noise on the inside, thanks to double glazing, but we could also open our windows, a bonus and some fresh air. We had 2 flat screen tv's, complimentary 2 bottles of water, our king-sized bed was feather free and super comfortable. Livingroom with writing desk and gracious sofa and table. The bathroom was immaculate too, separate bathtub and shower plus granite topped sink. The toilet was in a separate room and could be fully closed off from the bathroom. We had room service, a lobster bisque and a Cesar salad with chicken, this however arrived separately within 5 / to 10 minutes of each other. Naturally we had preferred it was delivered together, but nevertheless, the quality and service were once again wonderful and memorable. Our Dinner at the Saddle room, included in our package was most gorgeous, the restaurant itself is lavish and elegant furnished, plus it was almost full house too. Efficient and friendly service, the wild Atlantic salmon with cumber pickles was very memorable, as was the cod and Irish trout, modern presentation and wonderful flavors, a real highlight. The dessert was great too incl. a creme brulee and pavlova of peppered strawberries, a delight. After a comfortable night, wonderful linens, high thread count we enjoyed on our Sunday morning the A la carte breakfast also served in the Saddle Room // which was once again included in our overnight price // package. Memorable were the Eggs Benedict with Irish Limerick ham and wonderful French Toast with maple syrup, good tasting coffee and banana smoothie. A wonderful start for Sunday morning we think and once again, the service and friendliness were spot on, love it. To sum it all up, a great experience, we would gladly return and consider this property as one of the best hotels in Ireland, from our beautiful Junior Suite, complimentary Internet and water in the Lounge, great friendly services, all requests fulfilled to superb cuisine and relaxing bathroom // big king sized bed. We will stay here again in the future and recommend this Renaissance property for a memorable // for the right reason // stay in Dublin, the beautiful capital of Ireland. We had very enjoyable and romantic weekend break at this hotel.
