The Shelbourne’s famed Horseshoe Bar

The Shelbourne’s famed
Horseshoe Bar

Among new meeting venues in the Irish capital, the 150-room Radisson SAS Royal opened this summer. Developed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen, the hotel has a rooftop terrace, 15 meeting rooms and a ballroom.

Remodeled, renamed and reopened is the landmark 284-room Shelbourne Dublin, now flying the Renaissance Hotels & Resorts banner. The hotel’s ballroom and 12 meeting rooms were completely revamped.

Opening this month just outside the city is the 200-room Ritz-Carlton, Powerscourt, County Wicklow, with 6,000 square feet of meeting space, two championship golf courses and a spa with 18 treatment rooms.
