The Shelbourne Has Been Added To Virtuoso Luxury Travel Network

Dublin's Shelbourne Hotel has been awarded membership to Virtuoso®, making it the fourth hotel in Dublin to secure membership in the luxury travel network, which features some of the world’s finest travel advisors sharing unparalleled expertise and advice, as well as travel partners that entice discerning travelers with world-class service and experiences.

Yvonne Donohue, director of sales & marketing at The Shelbourne, said, “Being welcomed into Virtuoso is a wonderful opportunity for our historic property, as well as for travelers around the world to discover and enjoy the fine art of Irish hospitality which has long been central to the experience we offer at The Shelbourne. Virtuoso has always maintained extremely high standards in selecting properties to be part of its luxury travel network, and we are very honoured to be invited to join as we continue to grow our relationships among leading travel professionals worldwide.”

The announcement follows the recent news that The Shelbourne has finished the first phase of a multi-million euro refurbishment by designer Guy Oliver, which included enhancements to the hotel’s Heritage Suites, Heritage Park View Rooms and the Grand Staircase, as well as a restoration of the hotel’s façade. The second phase of the renovation is set to unveil in spring 2018, including full renovation of the Lord Mayor’s Lounge, enhancements to the historic first floor meeting room spaces, and the launch of a new bar and adjoining terrace.
