Christmas gifting made easy...

Christmas can be a stressful time even in the most ordinary of years and, with so much else going on in 2020, there’s no reason for you to spend unnecessary time fretting over finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

Ireland’s favourite five-star hotel has a host of gifting options to add sparkle and joy to your loved one’s Christmas this year. The Shelbourne has really thought of everyone this season meaning you can gift your loved ones something extra special to look forward to. Choose from the most pleasurable ritual of a Classic Afternoon Tea in The Lord Mayor’s Lounge, a luxurious overnight stay, dinner for two in the award-winning Saddle Room Restaurant, a pampering afternoon in The Spa or Salon or perhaps the unique gift of exploring your family history with a stay and appointment with The Shelbourne’s Resident Genealogy Butler, Helen Kelly. 

In addition to vouchers, The Shelbourne also have beautifully luxury gifts including their Whiskey Bullet glass or The Shelbourne Candle, designed specifically for The Shelbourne by Irish scent makers Cloon Keen. See theshelbourne.com for more information.
