EA/PA Networking Event with the APAI | The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin

On Wednesday November 6th, the APAI had their final event of this year in the spectacular The Shelbourne Hotel!

It really is the place to meet and celebrate in Dublin. Steeped in history, with its elegant rooms and tastefully refurbished suites, The Shelbourne is a delightful mix of quintessential Irish charm and timeless luxury.

We were treated to some delicious food and drinks, before hearing from JP the GM of The Shelbourne. Denis O’Brien, the longest standing concierge in the hotel made us laugh and cry with all of his amazing stories of the hotel, its guests, and its history.

To showcase what can be done in each of the rooms, and to show us their most popular iconic rooms we were brought on a tour which included the famous “Constitution Suite” too (see below).

The mission of the APAI is to promote the success of career-minded administrative professionals by providing opportunities for growth through education, community building, and highlighting the important work of administration professionals in Ireland. “We recognise excellence, set standards, and provide educational, networking, and professional development opportunities for those pursuing careers in the office administration field.”

We also want to thank all of the local and national businesses who have shown their support and gave some great content for our goody bags – The Shelbourne, Lunatic Fringe, Just-Eat, Connect-Pro, The Shelbourne and EPIC Museum!
