ANYONE hoping to sleep under the same roof as First Lady Michelle Obama during her Dublin visit is out of luck.

The Shelbourne is completely booked for the duration of the G8 summit.

 

Mrs Obama is reported to be staying at the landmark hotel and bosses now have ‘sold out’ signs on their website.

 

She is due to travel on Air Force One with President Barack Obama and their two daughters for the summit in Fermanagh on June 17 and 18.

 

SUITE

 

But the Shelbourne Hotel, which has yet to confirm the stay, has no rooms available for those dates. The First Lady is expected to stay in the €2,500-a-night Princess Grace Suite, with daughters Malia (14) and Sasha (12) staying in adjoining suites.

 

The Princess Grace Suite is the best the St Stephen's Green hotel has to offer, with two beds, two bathrooms, four phones and three large

televisions.

 

The Obamas’ itinerary has not yet been finalised, but it is expected mainly to involve events in Dublin.
