The Saddle Room, the Tastiest Irish Restaurant in Dublin

An open kitchen, dark oak walls, rich splashes of gold and a lavish oyster bar add to the drama of the fine dining experience, touching all your senses. Chef Garry Hughes' confident way with fine Irish ingredients echoes the sophisticated surroundings.

The Saddle Room also features two private dining rooms. The Martyn Turner Room, featuring original prints from the acclaimed cartoonist, and The Trophy Room, featuring original jockey silks from the 1950s, are both capable of seating up to 16 guests and offer all the comfort, style and savvy service of The Saddle Room, but in an intimate setting.

Dublin's favourite 5-star hotel scooped a major prize at the RAI Irish Restaurant Awards, with The Saddle Room at The Shelbourne Hotel awarded Best Hotel Restaurant in Dublin.
