The Shelbourne Hotel is removing its iconic revolving doors.

The move has been approved by Dublin City Council.

As part of the changes, there'll be modifications and alterations to the hotel's main entrance.

It'll see the removal of the revolving doors with a new hinged, double entrance door with a fanlight.

The curved step at the door will also be replaced with a new, larger step in front of the new entrance.

Brass handrails will also be added around the existing cast iron columns at either side of the main entrance.

A conservation expert is to be used to design, manage, monitor and implement the works.

While the out-going revolving door, frames, glazing and fixings will be labelled, packed and stored in a temperature controlled location elsewhere on site.

One of the conditions means that work can only be carried out on Monday to Friday between 7.00am and 6.00pm, and on Saturdays from 8.00am to 2.00pm.

The Shelbourne - named after William, 2nd Earl of Shelburne - first opened its doors as a hotel in 1824.

It's played host to several famous guests - including Clark Gable, John Wayne, Rock Hudson, Princess Grace of Monaco (for whom a suite is named after), Elizabeth Taylor, Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama.

It's part of the Autograph Collection of hotels, which is owned by Marriott International.
