The Shelbourne is back!

Once again Waddell Media have been given exclusive access to the front and back of house of Dublin's most iconic hotel. This time we'll be following what it takes to deliver five star luxury over The Shelbourne's busiest time of the year - the autumn and Christmas season.

Over the series the exacting staff find themselves under more pressure to ensure that the standards of service are upheld as the outside of the hotel undergoes a major and disruptive renovation to its façade.

The series starts in glamourous style on Ladies Day at the RDS Dublin Horse show.  After the competition champagne is flowing at the hotel's No 27 bar as hundreds of the most stylish descend to carry on with the festivities. However, there is a whiff of rivalry in the air as the spectacularly attired compete for a chance to win the hotel's own 'Most Stylish Lady Competition.'

Some of our favourite characters from the first series are back including Executive Chef, Garry Hughes who will be ordering thousands of oysters for hotel's first Oyster Festival, selecting the perfect pumpkins for Halloween and overseeing the creation of the spectacular Christmas gingerbread house.

The new series of The Shelbourne starts on Thursday, 5th November at 8.30pm on RTÉ One.
