Under the Hammer

Chance to recreate the Shelbourne Hotel at home as furniture to be auctioned

Some of the furniture is unused and still in it’s original packaging.

FURNITURE FROM THE Shelbourne Hotel is going under the hammer next week.

Two container loads of stock from the Shelbourne Hotel will make its way to Laois where it will be auctioned.

There are 250 lots of furniture including many unused items which are still in their original packaging.

Plush upholstered chairs and specially-made mahogany furniture are among the items from the hotel’s suites going under the hammer.

The stock is being sold by Niall Mullen, who recently held the biggest auction in the history of the State with the 14-hour disposal of the contents of the former Central Bank in Dame Street. Mullen said:

Because the rooms in the Shelbourne are quite large and they had a reputation for luxury, each of the rooms contained a double-ended window seat, an upholstered chair and matching stool.

“These were complemented with Sheraton-style mahogany side tables and cabinets.

All of these items are in the auction giving a unique opportunity to recreate designed luxury in your home at a discounted price.

The auction also includes 1,000 lots from Brown’s Barn bar and restaurant on the Naas Road.

The Brown’s Bar collection will contain the 30-foot stainless steel central bar structure and every item of furniture and memorabilia including 150 eclectic pieces such as oversized lanterns, taxidermy and antique Irish pine objects.

The auction will take place at The Heritage Hotel in Killenard, Co Laois on Wednesday, 29 November.

It’s being conducted by Sean Eacrett Auctions and the full catalogue can be viewed here.
