The Horseshoe Bar

One of The Shelbourne's treasures - The Horseshoe Bar has always been a destination, an institution and a living history of Irish society. From business and politics to the arts, it has been home to some of Ireland's most fascinating characters since 1957. A warm and intimate bar for a perfect pint of plain, a beloved local whiskey or a well-built martini. The curved brass-trimmed bar and rich red walls create an atmospheric setting where the customer is only a few feet from the bartender and the next round.
