The Saddle Room at The Shelbourne Hotel, a Renaissance Hotel

St Stephen's Green
aaicon Restaurant %

In a sign that all bases are covered, the Shelbourne retains a 'genealogy butler', to research your family background, should you decide to delve into who you think you are. This grand modern hotel is in a prime location on St Stephen's Green, the expansive garden square at the heart of the capital, offering a range of eating and drinking options culminating in the tip-top Saddle Room. Here a menu of modern brasserie dishes specialises in seafood (including generously loaded platters) and majestic 32-day-aged beef (two of you might set about a pound of Chateaubriand). Modernists might look further afield to the likes of seared foie gras in Banyuls with fig compôte, or Knockdrinna goats' cheese with pickled courgette in beetroot emulsion. Mains might include rabbit loin wrapped in Alsace bacon with kale and puréed carrots, or roast halibut with baby leeks in chilled oyster cream. A five-course taster offers a tour of the more adventurous dishes, while puddings take a traditional line for rhubarb crumble, or blackberry mousse with caramelised apple.
