Iconic destinations don’t come much more grand than The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. right across from St. Stephen’s Green, this hotel epitomises all that is elegant in five star hotel accommodation and hospitality. But not a place to sit on its haunches and bask in old glory, The Shelbourne is always striving to move forward and bring new things to the capital. The first ever Shelbourne Oyster Festival will take place during the whole month of September.
The inaugural festival will feature the remarkable skills of Toni Yap, an expert oyster shucker who can even get into these notoriously hard to open shellfish back to front! That alone is worth seeing! Award winning wine Sommelier Nisea Doddy will be pairing oysters with the best wines. The Shelbourne Head Chef Garry Hughes has devised some appropriately highly polished menus which will feature throughout the hotel during Oyster Festival month. There will be live music and daily events celebrating the king of shellish, at one of the world’s best loved hotels. If you’re in the capital, not to be missed!
