  • 200th Anniversary

Two Centuries of History. Two Centuries of Hospitality. Two Centuries of Stories.

The Constitution Dining Experience

200 Years of The Shelbourne

As we celebrate our Bicentennial, we invite you to join us on a journey through the hotel's illustrious, colourful past. Throughout the year, we will be looking back at the extraordinary characters and unforgettable events that have shaped The Shelbourne's story over the last two hundred years.


We will revisit dramatic cultural and political milestones in Irish history which unfolded right on our doorstep (and sometimes within the hotel walls). We will explore the hotel's iconic architecture and chart how it has evolved across the decades. In our menus, we will explore vintage recipes and flavors that our very first guests might recognise if they dined with us today. We will share the lore and legends of Dublin society down the years, introducing you to the literary locals who gathered in the Horseshoe Bar and the fashionable set who hosted glittering soirees in The Shelbourne's grand ballroom.


2024 is going to be a landmark year for The Shelbourne, and we don't want you to miss a single minute. Follow us on Instagram and sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about our special Bicentennial events and offers.
